About me and my therapy practice

Enquiring into counselling is a brave thing to do as looking into thoughts and feelings can be scary and confusing. My own experience as a client told me it was the not knowing what I was going through that was the most difficult part. Yet this first step shows we have the determination to take control of things in our lives we might have been neglecting. These might be ways we think about ourselves, how we get on with others, patterns of behaviour or attitudes we may feel stuck in. As I see it, the purpose of counselling, and my role as counsellor, is to make sense of the things we find, to be interested and curious about them and to explore other ways of how we can get on in our life. My job also involves taking care of the set up, as it really helps to feel safe and supported when we look into how we feel about our self in relation to others. And also, to keep hold of the various bits we discover, rather like a jigsaw puzzle, in a way that makes putting the puzzle together a lot easier. I want to share my own experience and knowledge of how we can be more confident and positive in our outlook on life. It begins and ends with you, and the first step that shows how you are already well on your way to sorting any difficulties out. Picking a counsellor isn’t easy so I offer a free initial session so you can get a chance to see how we might work together.

About me and my therapy practice

I have worked as a supervisor for 5 years and am fully qualified to post-graduate diploma level. I work with both counsellors in training and established professionals. Theoretical approach: I see the aim of counselling as ultimately to embrace all therapeutic approaches. This usually begins with becoming grounded and experienced in one approach and then learning and assimilating others. I explore the key aspects of how we work in order to be present and available to the client, and how we can use theory to support our practice. Counselling services: I have extensive working knowledge of how a counselling service works, and of the kind of issues we, as practitioners, may have working within a service or organisation. How the service is set up and run has important implications for the practitioner, either as a volunteer or a paid member of staff. Personal strength and resilience: Perhaps the most important aspect of supervision is to understand, evaluate and support the way we develop as practitioners. This includes the personal implications of working with distress, ethical consideratios, understanding oneself through personal growth and experience, managing issues around self-esteem, both personal and professional, and developing the ability to be present and available to the client in our professional role that we experience as authentic and resilient. I offer the initial session for free in order to have a clear exploration of how we may work together.
