About me and my therapy practice
We sometimes reach a point in our lives in which our usual ways of coping are failing to help. I aim to support you in understanding your troubles and finding more effective ways of dealing with your concerns. I am a trained counsellor, psychotherapist and supervisor and my career in the helping professions has spanned over 40 years. I worked as a social worker and mental health worker before specialising as a counsellor and psychotherapist. I have worked in voluntary organisations, including The Samaritans and Rape Crisis, and in private practice, as well as spending nearly 25 years working as a counsellor for the NHS.
My counselling/therapy approach is Integrative. This means that I have experience and training in a variety of therapeutic approaches, including person-centred, existential and psychodynamic, and will use the method that I consider will be most helpful to you. In addition to the listed areas, I have a special interest in cross-generational issues
Our first meeting is an opportunity for me to find out what you need, and for you to get a feel of whether you would like to work with me. If we agree to work together, we would then continue with either a set number of appointments, or with an arrangement to carry on meeting until you feel ready to finish. I usually find that it is most effective to meet weekly, but sometimes less frequent meetings are appropriate. I have both daytime and evening appointments available on Mondays.
My base is Sheffield S7, and I am currently working remotely
