About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified counsellor who believes in providing a warm, non-judgemental and secure environment in which a trusting relationship between client and counsellor can be built. Together we will identify your needs and work towards finding positive solutions.
It is important to find the right counsellor; I therefore offer a free initial consultation to enable you to assess whether you feel we could work together and whether my approach is suitable for you.
I attend regular supervision sessions in order that I adhere to good practice and I work to the Ethical code of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy)
I currently run my own private counselling practice from home and my client work has covered a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, bereavement, loss, anger, relationship difficulties and low self esteem. I have had previous experience of working with various agencies including working with carers, counselling in a college setting as well as working for a charity supporting those affected by sight loss
I have experience of teaching as a Lead counselling tutor in a college in Winchester and more recently as a primary tutor on the degree course.
I have a foundation degree in Humanistic counselling based on Transactional Analysis and I attend regular training workshops and courses as part of my continued professional development. I am currently studying for a masters in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy
