About me and my therapy practice

I am an accredited BACP integrative counsellor.  I am trained in a variety of different counselling theories and aim to provide a safe, non-judgemental and confidential relationship, by walking alongside you, facilitating and enabling you to reach your goals. 

Counselling provides professional support by giving you a space to talk about life and problems you are experiencing in a confidential, non-judgemental environment.  I currently see clients Online. The preferred software currently is Zoom or Skype.  Please contact me for an initial free 1/2 hour meeting. 

Practice description

I aim to help clients achieve their goals in counselling. This is supported by various counselling training that I have received such as Gestalt, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), TA (Transactional Analysis), IFS (Internal Family Systems), Inner Child and Creative Therapy and Attachment Theory.  However, the most important aspect of counselling is the relationship with your counsellor and providing a safe space for clients to talk confidentially and freely without judgement or pressure. I encourage feedback on your experiences of the counselling.

My first session

The first session is an opportunity for you to ask questions and to listen to what you want from counselling. I will explain some details about the counselling agreement and GDPR, which gives information about confidentiality, timings, fees etc.  I will ask questions asking you to share what has brought you to counselling and what you would like to talk about or change through the sessions.  The first few sessions involve describing your story, background and current life circumstances - I call it 'painting a picture' of your life.  You are free to only share what you are comfortable talking about with me.  It is a privilege to facilitate your journey through counselling.

About me and my therapy practice

I have been practising as a counsellor for about 15 years and I also teach counselling, as well as leading a supervision group for trainee counsellors. I have been seeing supervisees from home for the past five years and I receive regular sup-of-sup from an experienced supervisor.  I use the double matrix model in the way I work with supervisees.  I am also undertaking an MA in counselling, which also provides more training adding to my certificate in supervision.
