I am a qualified cyber therapist so am pleased to offer weekly sessions using whatever technology my clients are comfortable with – telephone, video, chat, email at a mutually convenient time.
In the interests of minimising infection risk, I do not offer regular face to face sessions at the moment.
About me and my therapy practice
The best predictor of a successful outcome is the relationship between client and counsellor. I focus on understanding not only the issues that my clients face, but also the best way to work together towards a good result.
I started my counselling training following being made redundant at the end of a 35 year career as a Chartered Engineer in various responsible engineering and marketing positions in international telecommunications companies. Since qualifying about 10 years ago I have deliberately broadened my counselling knowledge through my continuing professional training, so that I can meet the needs of a wider variety of people.
While I worked with adults with challenging needs during and after my training, recently I have spent a lot of my time helping young people deal with difficult times in their lives in my role as a peripatetic school counsellor for a local charity.
I work in a Pluralistic way, which means that I focus on understanding not only the issues that my clients face, but also the approach and style that works best for them. I work with adults and young people and issues can include bereavement, anxiety, anger, stress, family and relationships, depression, self-harm, bullying, low self-esteem, etc.
My special interest is helping my clients become more compassionate towards themselves, as much as towards others, living with emotions and how we can stay healthy, while living our often stressful lives.
