About me and my therapy practice

As a Counsellor my approach is an eclectic, integrated model combining the most useful elements from a wide range of therapies. My practice includes a large percentage of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). CBT is a very solution focussed approach, so the work can be brief yet extremely effective. My work is Client-Centred and specifically tailored to meet individual client requirements.

Practice description

I support people going through stressful periods in their life. I believe positive mental health and resilience is increased by the development of good self-estimation, confident behaviour and meaningful relationships.

Exploring Client's self-limiting beliefs and behaviours, understanding how these thought and behaviour patterns may have originated and but more importantly how they can be changed. Self-awareness is the starting point for freedom and goal achievement.

I have had extensive experience of working with both Adults and Young People, helping them find solutions to their problems. I have worked for over 30 years in the Public and Private Sector. I have practiced all aspects of Counselling since becoming qualified in 2002.

My first session

I will go through my Confidentiality and Privacy policies,  and agree this with the Clients before proceeding.

About me and my therapy practice

The Supervision I offer reflects my own Counselling practice. I use an eclectic, integrated approach combining the most useful elements from a wide range of therapies from Person Centred to CBT. With thousands of hours of uninterrupted counselling practice since 2002, I have encountered numerous presenting Issues. However, every individual is unique and there are always different patterns and processes in their presentation.

Clients can experience varying interpretation and Impact from events. Therefore I use my own instinctive awareness, in order to optimise the support for both Client and the Counsellor during their work together. 

Practice description

I qualified as a Supervisor in 2005.

I support Counsellors, supporting Clients who are trying to navigate their way through difficult periods in their life. Listening is always paramount in the help we can offer. We must also be alert and use our experience and on-going learning to help clients identify their own desired goals, assisting them find pathways to a healthy, resilient mind-set with regard to their past, present and future.

By exploring Self-limiting beliefs and internal dialogue, then examining linked emotions and resulting behaviours, we can develop together more understanding. We can explore how dysfunctional assumptions may have originated and equally how they could be transformed. Understanding that very emotion has a value, every rational thought and consequential action contributes towards personal freedom and goal achievement.

I have always operated as a freelance Counsellor and Supervisor, from my own premises and within large organisations and Educational establishments, working with Young People Adults, Couples, and families.  

My first session
