About me and my therapy practice

Sometimes, friends and family are not enough. Sometimes you and your partner seem not to be able to resolve the problem alone. Maybe the feelings and thoughts are too frightening or embarrassing, run too deeply, or the impact on those close to you unknown.

If you want or need time to talk about what is happening in your life, I can provide you with that space. To be yourself, speak out those unspoken thoughts, put words to those feelings, we can walk together bringing light to your dark places. I provide a therapeutic space to support you in whatever way you need. I have experience working with individuals and couples through many difficulties. You only need give me a ring or email me, to make contact and start to settle your worry.

About me and my therapy practice

Supervision is an essential part of providing an ethical, legal and safe therapeutic relationship. Not only for counsellors and psychotherapists, supervision supports psychologists, nurses and doctors, police officers, and holistic therapists. Indeed, supervision supports anyone who works relationally and emotionally with people of all ages.

My supervisory way of working mirrors my therapeutic approach. I come from a humanistic, integrative perspective, and will work relationally with you and your clients.

For students or practitioners undertaking further training, academic supervision can sometimes be useful to check over written work looking for missing or incomplete theoretical stances. As I am also a practitioner in the field, I understand the importance of confidentiality, and can provide a different perspective on your written work.

As different courses have different requirements, before I undertake academic supervision, we will negotiate the needs of your course, to see if I can meet those needs.

If you are interested in entering into a supervisory relationship with me, please do get in touch.
