About me and my therapy practice
I am open to new clients working on-line or by telephone.
What differentiates my work is the way in which I bring together my life experiences, my previous business career, 18 years counselling experience and my ongoing professional training and am able to apply them to your situation. I follow the latest research and guidance, and blend this with my intuition, insight and empathy to help you, rather than following a pre-set programme.
My work is flexible, focused on each individual client. People present with similar issues but what works with one client is often different to what works for someone else. I listen empathically to your situation and help you work out what is behind the difficulties that have brought you to counselling. We then explore techniques that may help and the choices you face.
I am a Senior Accredited Member of BACP. I hold a Diploma in Counselling, an Advanced Certificate in Counselling Children, Young People and Families and a Post Graduate Certificate in Applied Positive Psychology - the science of wellbeing. I am currently working towards a Certificate in Therapeutic Coaching. I have been counselling for 18 years and have taken several specialist training courses, including 50 hours of CBT training and 30 hours in the therapeutic use of mindfulness.
I am approved by BUPA, Aviva, AXA/PPP, Nuffield Health, Vitality and many Employee Assistance Programmes
I work face to face, and by Zoom Video Conferencing, or by Skype and telephone.
I am registered with the ICO(Information Commissioners Office) which means I need to tell you what data I am collecting from you and what I intend to do with it. I am a Senior Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and am bound by their ethical codes of Practice regarding the storing of client information and client confidentiality.
My first session
Our first session is for both of us to see if we are happy working together. I will explain how I work and explore what you are looking for. I will assess your situation and if we are happy to work together I will talk you through my agreement which I will ask you to sign.
When working on-line or by phone, I will email you my agreement and assessment forms in advance of the session.
