About me and my therapy practice

Hello, in searching for a counsellor things may feel tough for you at the moment. It can be so hard finding the right way forward, I hope we can work together to help it all feel far less burdensome.

I have worked as a therapist for 8 years, providing over 4000 hours of therapy with people who want to feel more able to live their lives fully. Their 'mental tank' may have long since been full, or life events have taken their toll.

I counsel for the Police Federation and the NHS, as well as seeing clients privately. I have significant experience working with people who may feel reluctant or sceptical about therapy.

Counselling is at its most effective when we are able to build a strong working relationship. With this in place, Counselling is a highly effective way of building your inner and outer resources to help you lead your life the way you want to.

As an experienced counsellor, I am continually training, researching, writing and developing. At present I am studying for a Masters in Psychotherapy, which I hope to have completed by July 2021.

Up until 2018 I lectured in counselling, training mature students to become qualified counsellors at a large local college. I eventually decided to focus entirely on client work, as unfortunately lecturing was monopolizing my time. I loved it though, and will return to it in some capacity in the future, I'm sure.

Seeing a counsellor and deciding to explore your life and situation takes real courage. The results can be remarkable.

Time to start your Next Chapter? Get in touch and let's get started.

My first session

Initial sessions include a brief discussion of your situation and a counselling agreement. We will also consider carefully what you hope to change in your life (or in your mind) and discuss your expectations of therapy. This session is the start of your counselling journey. I will prepare you for our work and help you feel comfortable to explore what brings you to see me.

Choosing the right counsellor for you is extremely important, after this session you can decide whether you would like to proceed or discontinue sessions. You can go away and give it some thought, it is your choice. There is no pressure to continue.

Sessions are generally held on a weekly basis initially and we will review progress every 5 sessions. Most people notice positive changes in their state of mind in as little as 5 sessions. Meetings can be arranged around your commitments as much as possible and you do not need to agree to the same time each week.

About me and my therapy practice

Hello,

I am a BACP Accredited counsellor, qualified supervisor (PG Dip) and qualified lecturer in counselling (PGCE)

I am deeply passionate about counselling, I have lectured it, read about it, studied and discussed it much of the time for over 8 years! This isn't just a profession to me, it is a huge part of my life.

Due to lecturing in counselling in the past I have an exhaustive understanding of theory, ethics and the use of counselling skills, which has been very useful when supporting supervisees. I trained in supervision to connect my love of training with my love of counselling. 

As a supervisor I am very warm, down to earth and non judgemental. I encourage supervisees to speak openly in a productive, calm and supportive atmosphere. I am also very congruent as a character and will speak openly if I have any observations, concerns or insights which may help broaden awareness and enhance practice.

We will work alongside each other as professionals and address issues raised through in depth exploration and mature discussion. We will also have a laugh and maybe a cry, and that is all OK too!
