About me and my therapy practice

I have been a Person Centred Experiential Counsellor for 20 years and a Supervisor for 15 years. I am an Accredited member of  my professional body BACP.   

After completing my training I worked in a GP's surgery in Blackpool , a University (counselling students at UCLAN) , and a Medical Centre in Leigh. I started my own practice in 2005 and have continued since. 

I  also deliver Talks on counselling issues and Training Workshops. I believe passionately in this model based on the work of Carl Rogers - offering the Core Conditions of Empathy , Unconditional Acceptance and Transparency(Congruence) consistently to a client. I place great emphasis on establishing a good personal relationship based on safety ,trust and respect as most research states this is the most important factor in the relationship. While essentially I am not directive in the way I work, we can discuss strategies where appropriate.

I work both longterm and short term, the latter with some counselling agencies who send employees of companies. I work with a variety of presenting issues inc anxiety ,depression, stress (including in the work place), relationships, self harm, anger, and sexuality. I also  work with Couples and have trained in Trauma work based on the Babette Rothschild model. 

I also believe essentially in the integration of the mind and body in my work. So ,where appropriate, I will offer body focusing to enable clients to get in touch with body sensations. This can be especially relevant when dealing with trauma issues and others such as anxiety. 

On occasions I can offer more creative ways of working via drawing/colouring and use of minatures to assist the counselling process.

I work from home in Preston but also hire a room in Lytham. I always offer a free preconsultation chat for both counselling and supervision to enable potential clients to decide whether I am the right person for them.
