About me and my therapy practice

I am an accredited Integrative counsellor and psychotherapist at Master level plus an evidence based children and young people’s behaviour professional with over 30 years experience of working with parents and professionals. I support adults, children and young people with a regular space and time in which to talk. This can be face 2 face or online building skills using CBT, Attachment Theory and a Person Centred approach. This takes place within a home setting which is welcoming, safe and comfortable. Sessions are individual to you, your family, your needs. You get a unique service. I also draw on the Accredited Mellow Parenting and Webster Stratton Parenting programmes in which I am a experienced practitioner. In therapy I will professionally guide you in your exploration of the issues and experiences you raise, with compassion. This is done using a range of age-appropriate resources looking at your thoughts, feelings and behaviours based on past, present and a belief about future experiences. This offers individuals the growth of personal insight, greater understanding and empowerment. The theoretical knowledge I apply is in skilfully dovetailing, Attachment, Person Centred and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). This means that clients are better able to access the counselling that suits them. I have worked in education since the late 80’s and delivered 10 Years parenting and Early Years Behaviour Consultancy for Derby City Council. Latterly in my career I trained to be a psychotherapist in 2012 to a Master level and have worked within charities and org. supporting a wide range of clients; age, gender, sexuality, culture and faith. All aims, goals and outcomes are discussed, measured and reviewed. This ensures collaboration in your therapy. creating a trusted  partnership.
