About me and my therapy practice

Hello and welcome to my profile! 

I offer a warm, safe confidential space for you to discuss whatever is troubling you. My counselling style is integrative which means I can draw from a number of counselling and psychotherapy models which I have gained through my professional training and experience. By doing this, I hope your needs will be met and you move towards the change that you desire. 

Qualifications and Experience

Prior to qualifying as a counsellor, I spent many years working as a Mental Health nurse (RGN & RMN) working in a range of NHS settings. I hold awards in: PGDip Counselling & Psychotherapy; MSc in Mindfulness and Adv. Cert in Cognitive Behavioural Interventions. I also have qualifications in teaching (PGCE) and Human Resource Management (MA). 

I work with people with a wide range of psychological and mental health issues; depression, anxiety and severe mental health difficulties. Life situations including work related issues and occupational well-being.

Location

I work from a comfortable office in Preston City Centre, which is easily accessible by public and private transport, parking is available.  My office is on the first floor and unfortunately there is no lift but I can offer an alternative space if required (PR2).

I hope what I have written has given you a flavour of my professional background and experience and if you require any further information please contact me.

About me and my therapy practice

Hello

I am an experienced Supervisor (PG Cert. in Clinical Supervision). My therapeutic approach as a counsellor is integrative with a person-centred core and this is reflected in my approach to supervision. My intention is to provide a safe and secure space in which the supervisee feels comfortable to explore the dynamics and processes of their therapeutic relationships with clients and that the supervisee develops their reflective and reflexive elements of their practice. I hope to provide the space for the supervisee to work as ‘effectively, safely and ethically’ (BACP 2018) and a space where we can explore fears and anxieties and also celebrate successes.
