About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified counsellor and a registered accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). My core training was based on the person centred approach at a masters level at Keele University. I am a Cognitive Analytic Therapy therapist/ practitioner accredited by the Association of Cognitive Analytic Therapy (ACAT) since 2023. I am also an EMDR therapist in training with the EMDR Academy UK and am a member of the EMDR Association. My experience and professional development have led me to adopt a pluralistic take on my practice that also introduces elements from therapeutic theories such as existential psychotherapies, compassion focused therapy, psychoanalytic theory and cognitive/ behavioural practices. I have also been trained in delivering supervision to counsellors and psychotherapists and I have supervised individual counsellors and teams of practitioners at a mental health charity, in a families social care setting and in a women's refuge near Manchester, UK.

I have delivered counselling to clients in higher education, the National Health Service and in the community sector. My client caseload includes people from various ethnic, cultural and class backgrounds, the LGBTQ+ demographic, and all age groups above 16. I have supported people with a variety of difficulties, including depression, anxiety, personality disorders, post - traumatic stress, obsessive - compulsive disorders, eating difficulties, managed psychotic symptoms such as delusions and hallucinations. I have worked with adults (16+) of any age who have experienced loss (through death, relationship breakdown, loss of employment or other), men and women that have suffered historic abuse, loss of family unit, life crises, workplace difficulties and people experiencing suicidal thoughts and engaging in self-harm. 

Practice description

I am particularly interested in working with people who have experienced developmental trauma and people who struggle in relationships and with forming helpful attachments with others. I welcome working with clients from any background including migrants and expats, which is a demographic that I occupy and is of particular academic interest to me. My clients will have the opportunity to be in a non-judgmental space with me where they will be able to explore their feelings, circumstances and experiences in confidence in order to reach a positive outcome. For those who find the immediacy of live contact challenging, or also for practical reasons, I offer text based counselling via chat or email message.

I am trained and have experience in delivering one-off, single session therapy and formulation sessions. I offer either a structured, time limited therapy arrangement or an open ended time frame, depending on what is required by my clients.

About me and my therapy practice

I provide supervision to counsellors, psychotherapists and professionals in helping/support roles. My training was based on the Seven-Eyed Model of Supervision of Hawkins and Shohet and I am familiar with the Cyclical Model of Supervision through my continuous professional development. I have experience of providing supervision to groups of helping professionals and third sector organisation managers and senior practitioners. 

Supervision is a professional space that allows my supervisees to explore their experience of practising their supportive roles. It offers the opportunity to be supported through difficulties in their therapeutic practice and professional role whilst ensuring the safety of the people they support. Supervision also has an educative function as it facilitates the development of the supervisee as a practising therapist and professional. 

My professional training as a counsellor was based on the person-centred approach. I am an accredited cognitive analytic therapy (CAT) therapist/ practitioner and an EMDR therapist in training. My background leads me to adopt a pluralistic approach in my practice. I am particularly interested in working with people with a background of developmental trauma and relational difficulties. I have substantial experience of working with practitioners and clients from diverse cultural backgrounds and migrants to the UK as well as other countries. I have managed mental health services in the community sector and in partnership with the NHS and hence have insight into the reality and environment of the work for professionals in this field. I have supervised groups and individuals.
