About me and my therapy practice

Welcome. Often couples and individuals come into counselling to exploring a particular difficulty or to make a specific change in their lives, this can often result in feelings of anxiety, stress, and uncertainty. I offer an empathic, supportive, and accepting space. Working with individuals and couples I offer short-term and on-going support. My aim is to provide an inclusive space for all. 

As an integral therapist, I use a range of therapeutic approaches to facilitate the work to meet the needs of the individual or couple.

As well as working in private practice for 12 years, I have worked as a counsellor for 14 years alongside organisations such as Mind, Victim Support, Women’s Aid, Bereavement services and private health companies. I also provide clinical supervision for counsellors and other professionals.

As a qualified member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), attending regular continued professional development is important to me and I keep myself updated with new theories and changes within the field. I follow BACP's ethical framework for working with clients and attend regular clinical supervision.

If you feel you would like to talk with me about seeking support, I offer a free initial 20 minute telephone consultation. 

Practice description

My practice is based in Ingatestone, Essex and I also providing online sessions for clients around the UK.

I work with many difficulties including specialisms in trauma, and anxiety.

I offer face to face and online appointments.  

My first session

In the first session it is usual to gain some information around the difficulty an individual or couple are experiencing.  I often ask questions around life history, how long the difficulty has been  going on and explore any therapeutic goals you may have.  This starts to building a picture of your difficulty and can be helpful in the planning of future sessions.  The initial session is also to ask any questions you may have about the process and to help you decide if working together feels right for you.

About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified, accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and have been in practice for over 14 years. 

As an Integrative Clinical Supervisor, (qualified to Diploma Level, course accredited by the United Kingdom Counselling & Psychotherapy) I provide one to one and group clinical supervision. 

My approach is relational to help supervisees feel at ease and be able to explore their client work in a collaborative, supportive and educative environment. 

Working with the Shoet and Hawkins 7 eyed model, including;

How the client is and looking at what they present in the session

Exploring strategies and interventions used to facilitate the work

Focusing on the relationship between the therapist and client

Exploring what is happening for the therapist, internal processing, transference/counter transference

Focusing on the supervisory relationship, what is going on in the clinical supervision sessions between ourselves i.e. parallel processing

Exploring my reactions to what is being brought by the therapist

Focusing on the wider contexts of the work i.e. environment, cultural aspects, wellbeing and ethical framework

My first session

During the first appointment we will be looking at what you find useful from the clinical supervision process and past supervision experiences. I have a supervision contract so each party is clear on the process which is something we can look at together to ensure it meets both parties needs.  We will discuss confidentiality of the sessions along with GDPR and how your details are kept. Frequency and timings of sessions will also be explored.
