About me and my therapy practice

I’m an accredited Integrative therapist; CBT, Attachment, Person Centred plus I’m an evidence-based parenting practitioner of 30 years. I support adults, children and teens with space and time to talk and build skills. This takes place in a setting that is welcoming, secure and comfortable. In therapy I will guide exploration of issues and experiences you raise with compassion. I use a range of age-appropriate interventions, looking at thoughts, feelings and behaviours based on your experiences. This offers personal insight, greater understanding and empowerment – supporting positive change. The theoretical knowledge I apply in an holistic blend of therapy is to skilfully dovetail 3 established theories. This means that clients are better able to access the counselling that suits them and feels right. I believe that we all really know what we need to heal ourselves but have for some reason lost the ability to access it. Counselling supports people in this reconnecting process. If it's parenting guidance or support you seek, I draw on my experience in the accredited and evidence-based practices of Incredible Years and Mellow Parenting. I worked for 10 Years delivering tailored guidance to parents for Derby City Council as their Early Years Behaviour Consultant. All aims, goals and outcomes are discussed, measured and regularly reviewed together. This ensures collaboration in your therapy; creating a trusted and reliable partnership that guides whilst developing the skills and tools to care for your mental health, well-being or parenting into the future. To get started call or email me to set up an initial session; we can also talk about what you want to get out of counselling or parenting. If you are happy to continue with therapy we will set up the second session and arrange to meet weekly/fortnightly.
