About me and my therapy practice

About me

I have worked in the National Health Service (NHS) for over thirty years as a health professional, I have been trained in both mental and physical health and wellbeing. I have experience of working with clients with a wide range of problems such as trauma, attachment issues, addiction, anger, relationships difficulties, childhood neglect, abuse, mental health, work related stress, domestic abuse, grief, and bereavement, and many other issues.

As a counsellor I work with both young people and adults.

Having lived and worked abroad for over three years, this experience has given me a wider view on certain cultural understandings and my work has a focus on respect, equality, and diversity. I have additional qualifications in English as a second language (ESOL) to assist with international clients.

I have been described as a compassionate counsellor with a willingness to actively listen to my clients and work at a relationship depth to make a deeper connection with my clients, in our therapeutic relationship.

Counselling in person takes place in a confidential manner in comfortable room, in central Leamington Spa near Victoria Park. Counselling online or phone is through a range of technology, allowing a quiet and confidential space. I am fully qualified and insured.

I ensure my counselling is affordable by offering a limited number of sessions at a reduced rate for clients who are unwaged or on low incomes.  

Practice description

My approach

Finding the right therapist that you can work with is important. I would encourage you to look at a range of certified counsellors and psychotherapists to select the one that you feel best fits your needs. As a counsellor myself, I have been in therapy and have experience of how important it in finding the right therapist, with the right approach and at the right time.

I am qualified and trained as an integrative counsellor using a range of approaches, mainly Person-Centred Approach and using other approaches such as Gestalt, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), trauma informed approaches. As I am committed to life-long learning, I am currently training in Transactional Analysis at the Berne Institute.

Please do not be confused with these terms, they offer me a range of tools and approaches to best support you in our work together.

Counselling is not giving advice but by allowing you to explore your feelings by talking and addressing your concerns in a safe environment, this way you may be able to gain a deeper understanding about yourself. This takes time and my sessions range are unlimited number, some clients have eight sessions and some I have seen for nine months and longer depending on their clients.
