About me and my therapy practice

I work as an integrative counsellor, primarily from a person-centred perspective. This means working with whatever you choose to bring to the session using ideas, theories and techniques from CBT, psychodynamic and other therapeutic philosophies that I feel will be helpful. I believe that it does not matter where we start, we will find the things that matter most to you together and explore those when you are ready to do so. For some individuals, that will be the first session and for others it may take a little longer.

I qualified as a counsellor in 2009 and over the years, I have worked with people who have experienced many different things within their lives, from bereavement to adult or childhood abuse, from difficulties at work to loss of self and who we are. These experiences bring a range of diagnoses but ultimately it is in processing life events that relief from symptoms can be achieved. 

I am currently only working online through video-conference technology such as Microsoft Teams or Zoom and hence have some flexibility about times for sessions.

Concessions

It is sometimes helpful for someone to meet their counsellor first, before committing to counselling, and I am happy to offer an initial 30-minute session free of charge if that would help.

Exceptions to work

As I teach on the counselling and psychotherapy professional training programmes at the University of Salford, I will not be able to work with any students who are currently registered on those programmes.

Practice description

I have a relatively small practice as I also work at the University of Salford as a counselling educator and researcher. My research is focused on the client experience of counselling, especially those who have experienced domestic violence either as adults or children, and how we can improve the client experience through counselling practice. I am interested in working with people who have experienced some form of abuse in their lives as I have knowledge and experience of working in this area.

Counselling can be on a short-term basis to address particular issues concerning you today, or on a longer-term basis if you have significant or multiple life events that you would like to explore in more depth. 

My first session

Prior to the first session, I will send you an contract for our work together which highlights a number of areas, including topics such as confidentiality and fees, which we can discuss during the first session. I will also send you a form which asks for some details about your interests and objectives for counselling as well as contact details which we can fill in together. 

The remainder of the session is for you to use as you wish. I believe that it does not matter too much where we start, we will find our way to what is most important to you as we work together with whatever you bring.

At the end of the session, we will discuss whether you want to continue with therapy, and if you do wish to do so, we will arrange a date and time the following week.

About me and my therapy practice

I work as an integrative counsellor, primarily from a person-centred perspective. This means working with whatever you choose to bring to the session and, in helping to explore your perspective, I will draw on ideas and techniques from CBT, psychodynamic and other therapeutic philosophies that I feel will be helpful for you. I believe that it does not matter where we start, we will find the things that matter most to you together and explore those when you are ready to do so. 

I qualified as a counsellor in 2009 and over the years, I have worked with people who have experienced many different things within their lives, from bereavement to adult or childhood abuse, from difficulties at work to loss of self and who we are. I completed training as a supervisor in 2013 and have worked as a supervisor of qualified practitioners working with adult clients since then. 

I can work with you on a short-term basis to cover absence or illness of your current supervisor, or on a longer-term basis if you are looking for regular supervision.

I currently work online using Microsoft Teams or Zoom and have some flexibility on the timing of supervision sessions. 

Concessions

It is sometimes helpful for someone to meet their supervisor first, before committing to supervision, and I am happy to offer an initial 30-minute session free of charge if that would help.

Exceptions to work

As I teach on the MSc Counselling and Psychotherapy (Professional Training) programme at the University of Salford, I will not be able to work with any students currently registered on this programme, although I can work with graduates from the programme.

Practice description

As a supervisor, I am interested not only in your client work, but also in you as a practitioner and human being. Things that are highlighted for you in practice are often things that we can learn most from, to support both future practice and our own day to day lives. 

Supervision can also look at career and employment as well as personal development and I see supervision as supporting your growth a professional. 

I work at the University of Salford, where I offer both individual and group supervision. My specialism is in domestic violence, but I am equally happy to work with individuals in general practice.

My practice is informed and underpinned by the BACP Ethical Framework (2018).

My first session

Our first session together will include contracting and clarification of our responsibilities as supervisor and supervisee. We will also use it to get to know each other a little better to confirm that we will be a 'good fit' as well as exploring some of your current practice issues.

At the end of the session, we will review our work together and decide on future sessions and timings.
