About me and my therapy practice

I have been working as a BACP Accredited Counsellor since 2004 and I believe that first and foremost it's about building a rapport, a working relationship between myself and the client.  I work in an integrative way, mainly using Person Centred, Transactional Analysis as well as creative approaches and focus very much on what the client themselves want from the sessions.  I work either via telephone, video or face to face when we are able to due to these present Covid-19 limitations.

Practice description

My main focus within any session is to ensure that I'm meeting the needs of the client, so if direction is required then I can offer this, if someone to really listen and offer empathy is needed, or coping strategies and creative ways of working then I can offer this.  I work with work related (stress, anxiety, workload etc) or personal issues (relationships, bereavements, work/life balance) and this list is not exhaustive.  I am a member of BACP Accredited and work within the Ethical Framework.
