About me and my therapy practice

If you're at a crossroads, feeling stuck or finding it hard to cope, counselling could be for you. At difficult times it can be daunting to take the first step but no matter what you are going through, things can change for the better.

I provide a safe, confidential, non-judgemental place to talk where I can help you make sense of what you're going through and increase your confidence and understanding of  yourself.

I work in a way that suits your  individual needs. Together we will work through your problems at your own pace. My approach has a strong person- centred base which means a fundamental belief in your capacity to know what is right for you and you'll be enabled to  discover more about your potential and to  find your own answers.

I'm a professional counsellor with over 20 years of experience of working with adults, young people and children in the private and voluntary sectors including Employee Assistance Programmes, childhood and adult abuse agencies, international students  and refugees and loss and bereavement  work. I'm also a school counsellor and play and creative arts therapist and run creative workshops in a variety of settings. In addition I am a clinical supervisor.

I work in quiet, comfortable therapy and well -being offices in south Liverpool. Please note that at present I am conducting online and telephone therapy but intend to return to my face to face practice once the current crisis is over.

My first session

The first session is an opportunity for you to meet me and get a taste of what counselling sessions with me might be like and whether we can work together. You will not be expected to tell me your whole life story. I  will go at your own pace. You will see if you feel comfortable with me and I will explain about what counselling is,  my background and the way I work. I'll be asking you what brought you here, what you would like to achieve and what previous support you have had. I'll be able to tell you whether I think I can help you, and you might like to go away and think about it or meet other counsellors first. It is so important to meet the right counsellor for you. There is no obligation to start counselling after this meeting.

About me and my therapy practice

I supervise a wide range of adult and children's therapists, including trainee and experienced counsellors and creative arts therapists as well as pastoral and support workers. My supervisees work in various contexts, from EAPs, private practice , charities and agencies to universities, schools and children's services. I offer an integrative, collaborative, non-judgemental environment in which to reflect on and explore all aspects of clinical practice and professional development. I use a humanistic framework which is suitable  for therapists from different modalities to build expertise. A range of creative techniques can be used if appropriate. I have a certificate in clinical supervision.

Practice description

My style is collaborative and I have been told that supervisees feel safe and comfortable enough to reflect on both successes and aspects that they are not confident about. They can use the sessions to explore the reasons for their reactions with clients without judgement and gain insight. I am dedicated to helping them develop and some of my supervisees have gone on to give workshops and training in their  chosen area of interest. I am able to signpost them to appropriate resource, whether books, information, creative resources or courses. I enjoy using creative media where appropriate as an opportunity for extending the understanding of client relationships. In short I have a holistic approach which accepts all parts of the supervisee. The feedback is generally that supervision is enjoyable and facilitative.

My first session

This is an opportunity for you and me to get to know each other. I'll explain about what to expect in supervision if you are a student counsellor and  outline the way that I work. I'll explain my experience and approach and discuss your worries and hopes for supervision.

I'll find out what your experience is, what types of  environments and client issues you have worked with , what you are looking for and what your theoretical approach is. I'll be able to tell you whether I think I could work with you or whether you need another supervisor with a more similar background and counselling model.
