About me and my therapy practice

Looking for therapy is brave and can feel daunting. I provide a regular space for you to talk about what's on your mind, what's causing you stress or worry and to figure out a way forward. This may be about current difficulties or the impact your past is having on you now, a crisis or a loss, relationship issues, anxiety or low mood. 

Whatever you are feeling you need help with will be met with deep respect and support. Gaining insight into who you are and how you tick will allow you to lead a happier life; learning  longterm skills to build a better future.

I offer counselling to men, women, teenagers and couples.

The key to a successful outcome is the relationship between client and counsellor and I will bring my authentic self to the therapy room. I do have a sense of humour and we will laugh at times! However, I will offer you a safe, confidential, empathic and non-judgemental environment with space and time to explore your issues, fears and difficulties.

My way of working will be based on your needs as a unique individual with your own personal story and challenges. Feeling safe and comfortable during your sessions allows you to heal with me by your side so please don't think you will be doing this alone.

Practice description

I am an integrative counsellor and have many years experience working with individual and couples. This includes CBT, client centred therapy and psychodynamic counselling.

I am qualified to provide counselling and supervision face to face as well as on-line. 

 I have worked as a counsellor in colleges, schools and the NHS and also for the local council supporting teenagers, as well as having a successful private practice.

My specialist training includes: 

  •  a registered cyber-therapist qualified to provide online and telephone therapy
  • working with couples, children and teenagers, family relationships
  • trauma and abuse
  • Filial Therapy (supporting parent and child together)
  • clinical supervision

As an acupuncturist of 25 years, I have a special interest in fertility issues for both women and men and provide a tailored  program of treatment and emotional support.

 My work is a reflection of who I am and I am committed to learning and exploring diversity and difference which means I am aiming to create a warm welcome to all people from all backgrounds. This commitment needs to be ongoing with anti-discriminatory practice being at the heart of my service. 

My first session

From our first contact be in a voicemail, email or text, my aim is to be welcoming and gentle. It's a big step to take.

I offer either face to face sessions or online. Our first session will be a mix of formalities such as paperwork (the legal bits like confidentiality and boundaries) and getting to know you. We will explore whether the way I work matches your needs and if we are a good fit; then start therapy there and then. Of course you may need to go away and think about if you want to proceed with me which is perfectly ok. It is important that therapy works for you and feels useful, that we can create a relationship of trust and safety. It may take time to get to grips with the process of counselling as we are not all great talkers and sharers of feelings! 

The first session will give you a flavour of what working with me will feel like.

About me and my therapy practice

I provide clinical supervision to counselling students and qualified counsellors either individually or in groups.

I am also a supervisor within NHS settings for teams of specialist nurses and palliative care teams, as well as for teachers, head teachers and boarding staff within different education settings.

Supervision provides such a welcome space for you to breathe, explore your client work, reflect and take some time to yourself. It is where you can let it all out yet feel supported and listened to without judgement. 

We will review your clinical work ensuring the clients best outcomes are at the heart of the therapeutic process. It is also important that you are able to remain safe and well while working in this field as it can be challenging physically and mentally. 

I am here to provide a relationship based on mutual trust and learning, helping you to stay up to date with any training needs and also celebrating the joy this work can bring.

Practice description

I hold qualifications in clinical supervision for individuals and groups and advanced training in working online accredited with ACTO.

This means my practice can offer flexibility where you may choose face to face sessions or online...or a mix of both.

I am trained as an integrative therapist with experience in trauma and abuse, relationship and conflict issues and mentoring students.

My office is large enough for small groups and is risk assessed in light of the current covid crisis.

I follow BACP and NCS ethics and guidelines and am happy to support students and experienced therapists. 

My first session

This is our chance to get to know each other and work out if we are a good match for supervision.

I offer a free 30 minute appointment either online or face to face where you can ask me questions and I can explain how I work.
