About me and my therapy practice

I work as a person-centred counsellor, seeing myself as a fellow traveller, a supportive and empowering companion to you if you are travelling a difficult path.  My core offer is to create an environment where you feel heard and understood, as free as possible from fear or judgment, and where you feel accepted for who you are, as you are, a worthwhile individual in your own right, whatever journey you are on.  

Practice description

I offer face-to-face, telephone and Zoom video-call sessions.  For face-to-face sessions, my counselling venue is a self-contained room in the tranquil surroundings of my garden.  Whether working face-to-face, over the phone or on Zoom, I strive to create a safe, confidential space for you to talk, without distractions or interruptions.  And as you talk, I will be listening, paying attention to what you are saying, learning to understand how you experience the world, and reflecting back to you what I am hearing, without judgment.

My first session

The first session is the beginning of your journey towards healing, but it will also be a little different to any other sessions.  I will usually start by asking you to complete a registration form, so that I can work with you safely and effectively.  I will also spend some time going through my working agreement with you; this makes the "ground rules" of therapy clear, so that you know what to expect.  After that, it will be over to you to tell me your story, and for us to start to work together on whatever you are bringing to therapy.

About me and my therapy practice

Who do I supervise?

I welcome enquiries from health professionals, social workers, teachers and other professionals, as well as practitioners working in a wide range of counselling and psychotherapy settings, in paid and voluntary roles.

What are my qualifications?

I have an MSc in Counselling Psychology (Keele) and I am an accredited member of the BACP.  I have a certificate of counselling and psychotherapy supervision practice and have undergone further training in supervising counsellors working with risk; I also have experience of offering supervision for those using counselling skills in a non-therapeutic role.


Practice description

How do I practice?

My supervision practice has grown out of my person-centred counselling practice, so I aim to create the same accepting and empathic environment for supervisees as I do for clients. As a supervisor, I use Hawkins & Shohet's "7-eyed supervisor" model (1989/1996) to facilitate the supervisee's growth and development as a practitioner whilst keeping the focus on the work with the client.  

My first session

I offer a half-hour introductory session (at half my standard fee) so that we can meet, discuss your requirements, and get a feel for how we would work together; we would agree and sign the contract at the start of the next session.  If you prefer, however, we can have a phone consultation initially, so we would agree and sign the contract at the first face-to-face meeting.  The supervisory relationship is very important, so I fully understand the need to "shop around" and find someone who feels like the right fit for you.
