About me and my therapy practice

Thank you for looking at my profile. I am a friendly, open-minded and approachable integrative and CBT counsellor offering my services to adults, couples, young people and children. I offer a safe, nurturing, non-judgemental environment where you can discuss any issues in a private, confidential and supportive space. 

I provide a friendly, professional and approachable environment that will allow you to share what is your mind, and decide the right way forward for you. 

I have a particular interest and experience in helping children and adults manage anxiety, depression, stress, bereavement, low mood and lack of motivation. I'm also qualified to work with couples and alternative relationship issues.

My comprehensive work experience includes an established private practice, work within the NHS, mental health services, school counselling, as well as a social work background with families. 

I offer a FREE no obligation 30 minute initial consultation for us to meet and gain a better understanding of what is happening to you and how we can manage and resolve your concerns. This will be conducted over the phone or via video link.

About me and my therapy practice

Thank you for looking at my profile.

I am an accredited BACP Counsellor offering clinical supervision to trainee and qualified counsellors. I have a social work background and extensive supervision experience in areas of the NHS, charitable and education sectors of counselling work. 

 I am a qualified relationship and couples counsellor and also an  ACTO registered supervisor for online and video supervision, if you would prefer this rather than face to face supervision. 

I offer a safe, supportive, approachable, non-judgemental and welcoming environment as I believe it is vital to feel safe to fully use supervision for the purpose for which it is intended; safety for both client and therapist. 

I am committed to providing a professional service that is respectful and works in collaboration whilst enabling the supervisee to bring any issue to supervision so that we can work together and make informed decisions, whilst adhering to the BACP Ethical Framework. I offer a non-judgemental and nurturing space to explore your experiences with such an important role, allowing you to work to the best of your ability with all your clients.

My first session

 It is an opportunity for you to ask any questions that you may have, and for us to decide whether we feel able to work together. 

If we both feel we are a good fit and you feel I can meet your supervision requirements then we will discuss and sign the mutually agreed contract.
