About me and my therapy practice

I work integratively with each unique individual.  At times in our times many of us have periods of finding it difficult to cope with whatever life has thrown at us. My work is about helping people on their journey whatever their difficulty or concern.  I work using a range of counselling techniques and theories, I am not a purist.  My background is person centred and I always try to start with a sense of humility and a belief that the individual is an expert in their own story and experience.

I believe that through compassionately providing a safe space where people can feel ennabled to speak, think and feel about what is difficult for them and by witnessing and facilitating their explorations and expressions, that change can begin to happen. I believe that each of us has a unique story from which we build our core beliefs and ideas about ourselves and our worlds. I work from a position of valuing and honouring these beliefs and their origins whilst also recognising that sometimes our core beliefs no longer nurture and sustain us.

My training has included Art Psychotherapy so I am happy to work creatively with people if they feel this would be interesting and helpful.  I can have a psychodynamic, a solution focussed, a creative, and a Gestalt perspective.  I am also interested in Mindfulness as a way of stilling and calming the Mind as a way of nurturing and refreshing the self.  I offer a free assessment session for us both to see if we feel comfortable enough to work together. I would hope that together with my client we could identify goals and foci that the client wishes to work on, and then I would proceed with regular reviews to make sure that, even as goals change as they sometimes do, we are still on track.   I often feel that I learn a great deal from my clients and that the work, although sometimes very challenging, is also a privilege.

About me and my therapy practice

I have worked as a counsellor for 20 years in a variety of settings, and with a wide range of clients and issues. I currently work for the NHS as a staff and patient counsellor. I work in an integrative way with a person centred foundation and use ideas and approaches from a variety of therapeutic fields, such as solution focussed work, trauma therapy, gestalt and Art psychotherapy. I work with clients as unique individuals who are coping with whatever situation/event/feelings in whatever context, to the best of their ability. I aim to work in a respectful, careful, creative and relational way to be with clients as they explore their issues and re-find and evaluate their resources, strategies and patterns. I bring my whole self to my therapy, my life experiences and difficulties inform my work at a deep level. Through developing a safe relationship with my clients I hope to provide the safety and compassion that allows clients to fully explore and express their difficulties and feellings.

About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified supervisor and offer supervision to the individual rather than to the individual's role. I work in a relational and creative way and hope to offer a steady, containing safe space to explore all aspects of the therapy relationship with a multi-foccussed approach holding the client, organisational issues, supervisee self care and ethical issues in mind and in the frame. I bring to this work a wealth of experience both as a counsellor/therapist/art therapist and as a woman, an employee and a whole person.
