About me and my therapy practice
My approach is person-centred. I am experienced in working with professionals in Education or Clergy. Experienced in personal and group supervision. I gained an MA in Person- Centred Counselling at UEA in 2011. I have a Diploma in Supervision and have been supervising trainees and counsellors for the last 7 years. I work as a group supervisor and supervisor for a counselling agency for people who have suffered from violence or abuse. I am accredited by Association of Christian Counsellors. I am on the register for BACP and ACC.
I work in a person-centred way, which means that I listen to the client or supervisee and give them the core conditions of empathy, acceptance and congruence.
In supervision, both the counsellor and the client are kept in focus so that both of them are supported, according to the ethics and guidelines of the BACP and ACC.
Safeguarding of all concerned is considered carefully.
My first session
In the first session we would meet either face to face or via zoom, in the present pandemic. A contract between the two of us would be considered, discussed and agreed on. This would be signed by the client and by me and would be sent via email and returned in the post, if meeting via the internet. Otherwise, this would be signed during the session, if meeting face to face.
Both of us would see how we could relate to one another at our first session and the client would discuss the reason for initiating the counselling. We may discuss any previous counselling experiences.
Safeguarding issues for all concerned would be addressed.
