About me and my therapy practice

I am an integrative counsellor heavily influenced by TA theory, but firmly believe that the relationship between client and therapist is central to progression.  I believe that we all deserve an opportunity to feel better whether it is learning to manage a long term mental health condition or figuring out how to recover as fully as possible from trauma or bereavement.

Sessions are currently offered online and over the phone, but once face to face work is appropriate I will also be offering clients an opportunity for face to face work in the Llandudno Junction area.  

Practice description

I have spent most of my adult life working with children and young people, so it is natural that this is the majority of my practice, but I originally qualified as a counsellor of adults, so I continue to welcome work with those who are legally adult, young at heart or otherwise.

I have worked for many years counselling those with recent or historic sexual trauma.  I have also been privileged enough to spend a number of years counselling with bereaved adults and children, so feel that this is also an area of specialism.  

The most important aspect of therapy is timing: when the client feels that they wish to try counselling this is likely to be the most likely time for positive change.

My first session

With young people especially, who often have the choice of timing of therapy taken away from them, I believe that it is imperative that a client feels that they can work with me.  This is why my first session is offered at a very discounted rate.

In the first session, we will spend a little time getting to know each other and a little of the nature of what you would like to change.  I would like to find an overall picture of how this issue impacts on your life in order that you can steer us towards some priorities for you.

About me and my therapy practice

I believe the best supervision allows us to be our most vulnerable selves as practitioners.  I work with transparency and compassion for the client as well as the supervisee.

Practice description

I am a new supervisor who has many years of counselling experience. I work mainly with children and young people and am heavily influenced by TA and as a result these both feature in my supervision.  

My experience as a therapist for those dealing with the impact of trauma or bereavement naturally shows up in my supervision and I welcome those working in these fields, but do not feel that this means I cannot work with those who do not specialise in these fields. 

In my past I was a classroom teacher and my work as a teacher trainee mentor has an impact on my work and suggests a strong focus on empowering both the therapist and, inevitably, the client.

My first session

In our first session I welcome your questions and feel that this needs to be a good fit for us both to work well together to ensure top quality therapy for the client.

This session will also need to explore your needs and goals for the supervision in the short term and beyond.
