About me and my therapy practice

I know what an unnerving experience contacting a counsellor can be: you might feel worried about saying the 'right' things, or about what questions I might ask you. You might be feeling sceptical that anyone can help you at all or be left wondering if your problems are 'bad' enough for therapy. I hope to allay some of those fears here.

Following redundancy from the job I loved, youth work, I have been so fortunate to find another career I love, counselling. I have gained experience counselling adults in GP Surgery's in Southampton and for Andover MIND. Also as a youth counsellor with Sparsholt College, I set up and ran for two years Andover Youth Counselling Project, and continue to supervise their current counselling staff.  I currently work as a Frankie Worker for Hampshire County Council.

I have developed a private practice which I run from my home where I work with young people and teenagers as well as adult clients. My room overlooks our garden and is peaceful, secluded and secure.

My work is informed by Transactional Analysis, which teaches that our past experiences and relationships influence who we are and how we feel, think and behave today. I see my role as a counsellor is to create for you a safe, confidential, free from judgement space for you to explore your inner thoughts, feelings and patterns of behaviour. I aim to enable you to feel listened to, understood and accepted for who you are.

About me and my therapy practice

I offer Clinical Supervision to counsellors working with young people. I have extensive experience working with young people in the charity sector, for the local authority and in private practice.

I have completed the OCN Certficate in Counselling Supervision with Lisa Mass and am currently supervising a number of counsellors.

I see supervision as the word suggests- 'super'-' vision' and aim to enable my supervisees to gain more insight into their work, why certain interventions work and others don't. I enjoy hugely the collaborative aspect of supervision, blending my experience as a tutor, youth counsellor and student to enable my supervisees to gain a greater awareness of their clients, themselves and their interventions.

If you are looking for supervision and would like to discuss this with me further, I offer a free 30 min consultation either over the phone or at my office. Subsequent sessions can be either face to face at my office, or using Skype or similar.
