About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced Integrative Counsellor & Psychotherapist working with adults, young people and older children in Private Practice in rural Buckinghamshire. 

I specialise in anxiety disorders and working with Neurodiverse young people, supporting clients to manage and improve their lives and move through transitions more easily and positively.

Although my main area of expertise is in working with young people, I also offer counselling to adults, especially those involved in the Education Sector, whether as parents, employees or trainees. Having worked in Education for over a decade, I am aware of the particular stresses involved in this field.

Additionally, as a bereaved parent of an infant who had a life- limiting condition, and as a trained Befriender for SANDS, I understand this very particular kind of loss and can support both parents and siblings through the grieving process.

Adolescence is a time of flux and I want to help young people navigate what can be a confusing process. Whether you are struggling to manage exam anxiety, wrestling with your self-image, identity or sexuality, whether you are coping with bullying, loss, or relationship difficulties, feeling angry, anxious, depressed, or overwhelmed; through the therapeutic process, I can help you make sense of what you are experiencing and support you in a warm, safe, confidential space, as you work through difficulties at your own pace, and effect positive change.

Approaching counselling can be daunting and I want to make this process easier. I invite you for a free, no obligation, exploratory session in which you can discover whether I am the right Counsellor for you. Please feel free to enquire via email.

My space is on a ground floor with a very low step to navigate and I have available free parking outside. I do have some concessionary appointments of £45 for counselling trainees. Please feel free to raise this in your initial enquiry.

About me and my therapy practice

Welcome! I am an Integrative, Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor.

During Covid I am offering supervision via online platforms. I am happy to offer top- up supervision of an hour per month if you are accessing supervision elsewhere.

My approach is collaborative and creative. Into a Person- centred core I integrate experiential knowledge of Transactional Analysis to help you reflect on your client work more deeply and Psychodynamic Theory to illuminate any relationships within.

I have been counselling older children and young people for over a decade, in a variety of settings, including schools, although I have worked with young people and adults in Private Practice. Please see my directory entry, or website for more detail on my practice, training and experience.

I work from my practice in the peaceful, rural setting of Brill and offer you a safe, warm, non- judgmental space to explore your client work.

My core Supervision model is the creative and collaborative 'Cyclical Model' (Page& Wosket 2015) into which I integrate the Restorative element of 'The Functional Model' (Inskipp& Proctor 1993) to facilitate disclosure and confidence building and 'The Seven Eyed Model' (Hawkins& Shohet 2012), in particular the Sixth Eye, to aid in my personal reflection on my process as a supervisor.

While our focus will always be on your clients, it will also be on strengthening you, both as a person and as a therapist and thus empowering you in your work. In essence I see my role as ‘to set the stage, to ask the right questions, to lead the supervisee subtly down the path to their discovery.’ (Borders 2009:201).

I invite you to contact me for a free, no obligation, initial session during which we can both assess whether we can form a positive and productive working relationship. I look forward to hearing from you and beginning a fruitful ‘learning alliance’. (Page& Wosket 2015:08).
