About me and my therapy practice

I am unavailable until Tuesday 8th January 2019

I adapt my style of working to fit the needs of the individual client in a safe, supportive and non-judgemental environment which I attempt to provide. I also work with couples in relationship who are looking to resolve their difficulties. Either as a couple or individual, together we would explore your experiences and feelings, concentrating on what you consider most important. Integrative therapy is designed to have a flexible approach which enables the counsellor to closely follow your unique way of experiencing the world and adapt to the different types of issues you bring to counselling. Working closely with you, my aim would be to help you make sense of your issues and/or to explore ways of approaching them in a potentially different way and find resolution.

About me and my therapy practice

Experience

I have experience of supervising counsellors in private practice and school based counsellors which has provided me with extensive knowledge about child protection issues. I also have experience of working within organisations which has given me a depth of understanding of how organisational complexities and cultures can impact on counselling.

My experience includes working with individuals but also extends to working with groups. I aim to provide a collaborative approach to supervision by supporting the supervisee to gain increased awareness of themselves, their work and how they impact on their clients.

Theoretical Orientation

Choosing a supervisor who understands the supervisees theoretical orientation is extremely important. I work from an integrative approach which has been supplemented over the years with additional therapies. I therefore have a broad understanding of many approaches which include Person-Centred, Existential, Psychodynamic, CBT, Mindfulness CBT, Gestalt, Transactional Analysis, Solution Focused Brief Therapy and creative ways of working with adults and children.
