About me and my therapy practice

I’ve been working as a counsellor since 2008 and I deliver a counselling service that works towards the resolution of whatever you bring, whether it’s anxiety, depression or a general feeling that you can’t quite put your finger on.

I’m a real person with experience outside of counselling that includes working in a range of criminal justice settings and working with vulnerable people. This work experience along with years of counselling experience means that whatever you choose to bring to our sessions is unlikely to shock me; I’m supported by a supervisor whom I trust and who is there to ensure that I work safely with you as a your counsellor.

I’ve been a client in therapy myself so I understand that it’s difficult to find somebody to talk openly to and that it’s hard work once you do!

‘Everyone tells you what to do and what's good for you. They don't want you to find your own answers. They want you to believe theirs.’

Socrates

It’s my job to support you while you find the answers to the questions that you ask yourself. I’m not a life coach, so I won’t be providing you with a menu of options and suggesting what might be best for you. I want you to feel as though you’re in a better place after we’ve finished working together than when we met - your understanding of yourself and your needs to be such that eventually we won’t need to work together any more.

If you choose to work with me there won’t be an overwhelming focus on money and I won’t be clock-watching while we work. I am a qualified professional with training, skills and insurance, and I’m an individual member of the BACP, but my approach is not too formal. To me being a counsellor includes having a sense of humour - while we work together to look closely at whatever it is that’s causing you to look for help, we won’t be afraid to also look at the lighter side of things.

Contact me now to arrange a consultation so we can see if we can work together.

About me and my therapy practice

I provide supervision support and guidance within a warm relationship that encourages self-review. We’ll work together so that you feel confident in providing the support that your clients need. We'll take into account not only their well-being, but yours too.

I qualified as a therapist in 2009. I’ve worked across many different work environments, including charities and local government. I've worked in the criminal justice sector and been a housing advisor. This breadth of work experience has given me the opportunity to grow as a professional. It has also provided me with insight into some of the varied ways that people live and experience the world.

Together we will manage legal and ethical boundaries while monitoring your progress. We will develop an awareness of the supervision process, and ensure that it meets your needs.


Practice description

I trained at CPTA to become a supervisor. I chose to focus on the CLEAR model of supervision. As with any good therapist, I strive to inform my practice through CPD. I enjoy reading about different approaches to therapy. While I make use of the CLEAR model, we’ll approach challenges together in a flexible and collaborative manner.


My first session

Our first session will be an assessment. You'll be looking to see if you can trust me to support you and your work. I'll be looking to see if I can provide what you need to work in a safe and ethical way with your clients.
