About me and my therapy practice

I have been a Counsellor for 10yrs and have significant experience in working with issues relating to Trauma & Abuse and have supported both men and women with complex mental health issues, depression & anxiety, loss & grief, relationship issues, challenges with parenting, who self harm and may be suicidal. I feel its important to say that despite these issues most of my clients are living what might appear from the outside to be normal lives, working, in relationships, raising children and might be active in their communities, this in itself can make it hard for someone to feel they need support. For me building a safe, respectful relationship is the goal, where you feel heard and not just listened to. where you can explore those things that might be holding you back or causing you pain and sadness. I wont give advice but my role is to help you find ways to manage life better and make sense of why thing are difficult for you.

Practice description

I work face to face or online and if its someones only option by telephone.

My first session

I offer a free 30 min introductory call where we can talk briefly about what you would like to bring and gain from counselling, at that point you can book a first session or take time to think about it, usually if you listen to it your gut will tell you if you think me might be a good fit to work together.

Availability

I currently have some availability for Supervision both daytime and evening and on various days. I may be able to offer a reduced fee for student Counselors. 

About me and my therapy practice

I have been a Supervisor since 2018, as the Service Manager  within a Rape & Sexual Assault Centre I have mainly supervised support workers and counsellors within that project.

 I have recently moved into private practice and am available to both experienced counsellors and students as well as support workers who use Counselling skills.

I have 25yrs experience of working with Trauma and Abuse, moving from being a support worker myself, to becoming a Counsellor in 2012 and more recently a Supervisor. 

I also Tutor and supervise Placements for students on a Counselling diploma course, so have experience of Supervision Reports.

Practice description

I firmly believe, the foundation of good Supervision is the same as that of Counselling, without a good connection and relationship its hard to create a place of safety into which you can bring yourself. I see my role as one of listening, helping you to reflect on your practice, make sense of what and why you might be finding your work challenging, to try and help you make sense what's happening between you and your client. Being a counsellor is rewarding but also challenging and you are inevitably impacted by it, my role is also to help you maintain a level of self care. I would like to hear about you, you listen to your clients and I will listen to you.

My first session

I am happy to meet initially either face to face or via video call free of charge to allow us to decide if we would be a good fit.
