About me and my therapy practice

I offer a confidential, empathic service to enable you to explore your issues and worries, whilst supporting you to recognise and build on your own strengths and resources.

We are all unique, and so are our reasons for starting therapy. I believe that counselling and psychotherapy give us a chance to build a better understanding of ourselves and our relationships.

I am an integrative counsellor, this means that I am able to draw my theoretical knowledge from the counselling approaches of existential, cognitive behavioural (CBT), humanistic and psychodynamic.

I work with this knowledge, offering counselling that emphasises the importance of the therapeutic relationship between client and counsellor, whilst using skills and techniques that are appropriate for each individual. I offer counselling and psychotherapy for adults . I work with from a consulting room in Salisbury city centre.

Availability

* Covid-19: At present I’m offering online counselling or telephone. From July I will be operating my outdoor therapy work, including outdoor supervision. This will follow social distancing rules and will adhere to all government requirements.

About me and my therapy practice

I offer supervision to qualified counsellors, counselling students, and to practitioners from other professional backgrounds.

I can provide supervision on the telephone, online or outside at suitably assessed locations.

I am an integrative therapist, with a person-centred approach to my supervision practice. My original Diploma was psychodynamic, I now use this theory to inform my practice, but not in process.

I aim to provide my supervisee's with a reflective, supportive and ethically mindful space. I place an emphasis on the importance of realness and compassion in my work, promoting a human approach with strong professional boundaries.

Practice description

My Supervision practice is based on an integration of three supervision models, Inskipp & Proctor's (1995) functional model, Page & Wosket's (2001) cyclical model and Hawkins and Shohet's (1989/2001) seven eyed model. I hold a PG Certificate in Supervision from KRCS, certified by the University of Gloucester in 2012. I gained an Advanced Diploma in supervision in 2014 accredited by NCS.

My experience covers counselling in private practice, mental health organisations, university and college provision, primary and secondary schools. I have developed my online practice with clients and supervisees over several years. A particular interest of mine is outdoor therapy work, whether this is walk and talk or a deeper eco-therapeutic approach.

I have worked within social care providing one to one and group support to parents and young people. I have managed and coordinated counselling services, volunteers and training. I also have personal experience of living and working abroad in a military setting.
