- Flexible hours available
For UK-based clients I offer online appointments only. I offer support to international clients also, including the expatriate community. I am flexible with my hours including early evening work and Saturdays.
I see clients aged 13 and up, and offer an inclusive and supportive practice for anyone seeking experienced and professional mental health counselling. I also support counsellors, social workers and therapists via a supervision relationship.
About me and my therapy practice
As an experienced counsellor I have served in both private practice, schools and in clinics providing mental health services. This has included working internationally as well as in the UK. I hold a Masters in Counselling and a Masters in Social Work and was a lecturer in social work leading on the ethics and values as well as practice modules.
I have extensive experience working with young people and adults and couples, in both short and long term work and draw upon my post graduate training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance Commitment Therapy. I also have undertaken training in Mindfulness Compassion Focused Therapy, and am trained as a Mindfulness teacher for adolescents and adults. I supervise social workers, counsellors and therapists in their work in the caring professions.
As a values based professional, I work in partnership with the people I support, and uphold the standards of our profession.
My first session
Prior to your first appointment, I will offer you a no obligation telephone consultation to see if we are a 'good fit' for each other. This gives you a sense of your comfort level with me, and whether I am the most appropriate counsellor to support you with your needs. This may involve an assessment, dependent on your needs.
