About me and my therapy practice

I was originally trained as a social worker and since then I have worked in a variety of settings over a period of 30 years including working within the criminal justice system, with foster carers and in the family courts. I trained as a counsellor 13 years ago and since then have worked both in NHS and private practice. I offer an initial meeting of 30 minutes where there is the opportunity to talk confidentially without feeling judged about what you would like to gain from counselling and to see whether I am the right counsellor for you. This session is free of charge. I have qualified as a mindfulness teacher and offer the 8 week mindfulness course to couples and individuals. I am registered with Barnardos to work with clients who have been affected by adoption. I have also completed a supervision training course and have experience of supervising both trainee and qualified counsellors in the NHS and private practice. I work from my home in Eastergate . There is free car parking.
