About me and my therapy practice

 

As a Counsellor and EMDR therapist, I provide a space for you to explore your difficulty safely and without judgement. We focus on your thoughts, feelings, actions, physical reactions, relationships and memories. Our work together aims to help you understand things, find self-acceptance and move on, building on your strengths and resources.

Working in counselling, social work and the mental health services has taught me that some of life’s problems are influenced by the cards we were handed at birth and perhaps by social attitudes. Therapy with me takes this into account; respecting diversity and fairness is important to me.

About my practice

Welcoming and safe space

Weekly sessions of counselling or EMDR, a trauma-focused therapy, after assessment and negotiation

Time-limited, short/longer-term therapy+reviews

Type of therapy Face to face

Counselling

Counselling helps us deal with personal challenges, a feeling of losing our way and with mental health difficulties that can develop. Talking things over in a safe space can reduce distress, enable resolution, develop a fresh perspective and make new choices. I provide integrative counselling, drawing on systemic, psychodynamic, neuroscientific theories and cognitive-behavioural, solution-focused, compassion-focused and ego-state therapies

EMDR

I use EMDR to help people recover from traumatic experiences and with nightmares, heightened emotions, hypervigilance and avoidance behaviours. EMDR can also help with a range of mental health conditions

Agreement

I offer a confidential service unless you disclose a serious risk to your own or another’s health and safety, or I am required to disclose information by law. I pay careful attention to any concerns about your safety. I do not see people requiring immediate medical support due to acute psychiatric ill-health, active suicidal planning or a severe eating disorder

About me and my therapy practice

I am an integrative senior accredited BACP counsellor, accredited EMDR practitioner and trained clinical supervisor. I have worked in counselling for over twenty years and before that in social work, including in mental health services.

I provide integrative supervision, face to face and online via Skype. I have supervised counsellors, one to one and in groups, since 2004 in Higher Education, the voluntary sector and hospice settings.

I use supervision agreements with clear boundaries, lines of communication and accountability. I believe the supervision process has great potential for development, support and quality assurance with the supervisory relationship being central to this.

My core therapeutic model for both counselling and supervision is integrative. I draw on understandings from systemic, psychodynamic, neuroscientific theories and cognitive-behavioural, solution-focused, compassion-focused and ego-state therapies.

I completed post-graduate training in supervision in 2005 at Leicester University- Postgraduate Certificate in Professional Studies (Supervision) 

In my therapy practice I provide a welcoming and safe space for clients to explore their difficulties with me, using counselling and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) therapy, a trauma-focused therapy, following assessment and negotiation.
