About me and my therapy practice

I offer a warm, caring and compassionate therapeutic environment where you will feel safe and not judged. Relationships are fundamental to human existence and can be the root cause of problems, past and present.  In a confidential setting, I will listen, support and guide you in understanding your experiences and developing a more coherent sense of self.  BACP Senior Accredited, I am an experienced integrative counsellor, drawing on psychodynamic and person-centred theories as well as other approaches, depending on what is right for you at the time.  In my private practice, as well as offering counselling,  I am a supervisor on an individual and group basis to counsellors and psychotherapists working for mental health charities, schools, and the helping professions. Reduced rates are offered for trainees in counselling and supervision, and I am BUPA recognised for counselling.

Practice description

My practice is based in my home in a quiet, safe, and comfortable setting with parking. I offer face to face, online, and on the telephone sessions with the option of a mixture of in-person, online, and on the telephone.

My first session

It takes much courage to come to counselling and it is the first step towards understanding and helping yourself.  Our first session together is an opportunity for us to get to know each other, exploring in confidence what your expectations are from the counselling process.  It also takes the form of an informal assessment to cover the necessary administrative information.  

Hopefully our therapeutic relationship will begin to develop through the session and we will go through a working agreement which outlines confidentiality, the number of sessions, fees etc. 

The session is 50 minutes, the therapeutic hour.  It is important to go at your pace and that you have the opportunity to ask any questions and address any concerns and fears you may have about therapy.  If there is time, there will be an opportunity for us to focus on any issues that can be addressed with immediate tools for you to take away.

About me and my therapy practice

I have a Level 6 Diploma in Supervision (distinction) and am a supervisor on an individual and group basis to counsellors and psychotherapists working for mental health charities, schools, and the helping professions.  In a confidential setting, I offer a warm, caring, nurturing, and compassionate therapeutic environment where counsellors and psychotherapists can present their clients, feeling safe and not judged. Relationships are fundamental to human existence and can be the root cause of problems, past and present.  I will listen, support and guide my supervisees in understanding their client experiences and developing a more coherent sense of self.  BACP Senior Accredited, I am an experienced integrative counsellor with a private practice.  I draw on psychodynamic and person-centred theories as well as other approaches, depending on what is right for the supervisee and their clients at the time. Reduced rates are offered for trainees in counselling and supervision, and I am BUPA recognised for counselling.

Practice description

My private practice is based in my home in a quiet and comfortable setting with parking.  I offer supervisees face-to-face, online, and telephone sessions, or a mixture of in-person, online, and telephone.  Group supervision tends to be held face-to-face at the relevant agency or on Zoom.

My first session

The first session together is an opportunity for us to get to know each other and establish what your expectations are from the supervision process.  It also takes the form of an informal assessment to cover the necessary administrative information.

We will go through a working agreement which outlines our mutual requirements around the Ethical Framework, confidentiality, contact outside the sessions, the length and frequency of sessions, fees etc.
