About me and my therapy practice

As I am a person centred counsellor I work with what you choose to bring and we work at the speed that suits you. Together we will find a path for you to overcome your challenges or an easier way for you to cope with them. It is more manageable to work through things when you are not alone.


I am also an EMDR therapist and work with trauma of all degrees of severity, this can be anything from child sexual abuse, bullying at work or school or a road accident as well as many other events in your life which you may not necessarily consider trauma. But always the work is done at your pace and looking only at what you wish to bring.

In addition I can work with attachment problems where early relationships with family members have been challenging, which can often impinge on later life. 

Practice description

When people make the huge decision to come to a counsellor they are usually struggling and often disturbed and/or scared. I hope that by working with me things will become clearer and it is easier to tackle things one at a time. It is important to me that you feel heard and that we work from where you are, but that you feel held and accompanied.

My ambition is to make your life easier and more comfortable for you to be in, and to enjoy. I have several counselling skills that I am qualified to work in and we can choose the best one for where you are at the time.

My first session

During the first session I am able to hear your main challenges in life, and where you feel they started, and explore with you whether it would be more suitable to work with you with EMDR therapy, with person centred counselling, with attachment work or a combination of all of them. This is a decision that we would make together and I would explain as we went through the session. So by the end of the first session you would have a much clearer idea of how your counselling will progress.

About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced person centred counsellor and an EMDR therapist I am also trained in working with attachment issues. I work from purpose built premises at my own home. When I am working with supervisees I work in a holistic fashion working with whatever is causing the individual concern or anxiety, as all aspects of their life not only their client work can have an impact on how they are best able to help their clients, and how they can achieve their full potential as a counsellor. I enjoy working both with experienced counsellors and trainee counsellors, both bring a huge richness and interesting insights into their work and constantly engage me in thinking and learning.

Practice description

Depending on what stage of your training you are at helps decide how our work is done, if you are a student you may require more guidance than an established counsellor.

 The more experienced you are the more I would hope that by exploring a challenge in your work together you can find a way to progress it.

My first session

During our first session I would hope to start getting to know you, what kind of practice you have and to let you know about me and my work. I would hope to be able to look at how you would like your supervision to be structured so as to enable you to get the most use out of it that you can. I am always open to how I work and ready to adapt to your needs.
