About me and my therapy practice

I offer one to one counselling tailored to your individuality. I offer a safe, non-judgemental, confidential space where you can express your real emotions which may be hard to share with your family and friends. I will work with you to support you, to find meaning in your experience and help you to find and connect with your inner resources to cope with life, promote any changes you want to make and manage any feelings and behaviours that may be impacting your ability to enjoy life. I am able to provide hope and respect during this process. I have been trained in a number of different therapy approaches and can use one which best suits your needs. I also work creatively using art, stones, clay and writing therapeutically. I also have experience of working with depression, relationship issues, chronic illness & pain, eating disorders, My training is in ‘humanistic’ therapy which values and accepts the person for who they are and acknowledges personal growth and change as possible and necessary.I promote a sense of self-worth and provide positive value to your experience and your emotions.

About me and my therapy practice

I have over 3000 hours of client experience and I am now offering supervision in a Person-Centred and  Integrative approach to Counselling and Psychotherapy. The aspects of Integration I can supervise on are IPT, low intensity CBT, Narrative Therapy and Mindfulness. My philosophical leanings are towards Existential ways of making meaning of life, our fears and our behaviours and this runs through all my client and supervision work.

I have been trained at the Centre for Supervision and Team Development (CSTD) in Bath and am working towards a diploma with them. 

My approach to supervision has been informed by the training with CSTD and would like to share their definition of Supervision:

'Supervision is a joint endeavour in which a practitioner with the help of a supervisor, attends to their clients, themselves as part of their client practitioner relationship and the wider systemic context, and by so doing improves the quality of their work, transforms their client relationship, continuously develops themselves, their practice and the wider profession.' 

Above all, for me, supervision is a collaborative, developmental and hopefully enjoyable process.
