About me and my therapy practice
We all face difficulties at times in our lives.Seeking help from a qualified counsellor can give you an opportunity to see a way through your problems and live a more satisfying life.This is neither self indulgent nor weak but in fact requires great courage in making the decision to seek help.I have been a practising counsellor for more than 15 years . I provide a compassionate, confidential space where I will listen attentively, without judgement or advice, allowing you to talk about what's troubling you openly and freely. Often the experience of being listened to and heard will in itself give you some clarity and understanding. My role is to actively help in finding a way through your problems and it is our working relationship that is most important in helping you to do this. I work with individual adults and young people on an open ended basis or over an agreed time period.
I practice integrative counselling which means that I can flexibly use a variety of different approaches according to the needs of each client. These include Person Centred Counselling, Psychodynamic Counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).I hold an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling and I am an accredited member of BACP . I comply with BACP's Code of Ethics. In addition to my private practice I have also worked with cancer patients and their families, university students and young people within schools. I also coach and develop individuals and groups in topics such as personal effectiveness at work , handling challenging conversations and leadership.
I am registered with several health insurance providers including WPA , AXA PPP, Vitality Health, Aviva and BUPA.
I can offer either online or telephone counselling as an alternative to face to face counselling.
Please feel free to contact me to ask any initial questions you may have.
