I am currently working online or via phone to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. If you have a level of anxiety that prevents you working online I have a few places for socially-distanced work in my home.

I have received training in working online and by phone, and find there are several advantages to working this way (as well as certain challenges). Research has shown that Online counselling is equally effective as working face-to-face. It may feel strange at first, but it soon feels natural.

About me and my therapy practice

It takes huge courage to admit that we are struggling, and even more courage to reach out to someone who can help.

I deliver non-judgemental, sex-positive, LGBTQ+ positive, faith-positive counselling. 

My training is as an “Integrative” Counsellor. This means I use insights and techniques from several different schools of counselling. However the heart of my practice is “person-centred” which means that I believe that you are the expert in your life: Deep down, you instinctively know what you need in order to grow and change for the better.

My job is to help you reflect and discover the answers you already have (even if that is hard to believe right now).

I specialise in the areas of bereavement, trauma and low self-esteem but work across a range of issues.

I have delivered counselling for Cruse Bereavement Care & Ellenor Hospice.

For face to face work: Please note that my counselling room does not currently have wheelchair access and the household does include cats (which will be locked away during counselling sessions, but allergies may still be triggered!).

Practice description

I usually work in blocks of 6 sessions, so we would initially work together for 6, 12 or 18 sessions (or longer term if needed, but I would always discuss progress every 6 sessions). 

One important note about bereavement work: I would recommend leaving it until at least three months after the date of the bereavement.  Those first few months are usually extremely difficult, and no amount of therapy can take away that pain. The exception to this would be after a sudden or traumatic death, when you may need more immediate help to process the loss...

My first session

On your first session I will explain the type of counselling I offer and we will discuss the Contract that you will sign if you wish to work with me (I would be happy to email this to you in advance of the first session if you prefer).

After the first session you can decide if you think we could work together. There is no pressure on your decision. There are several reasons why a counsellor and a client may not "fit" and it is important to make sure you find someone with whom you are comfortable. (If a counsellor reminds you of a school teacher who bullied you it may be easier to find another counsellor than to work through the issues this brings up.)

I work exclusively online and by telephone. 

 I switched to online work during the Pandemic and, after receiving the appropriate training, discovered that there are several advantages to this way of working (as well as some challenges). Being able to be at home, in your own space can make it easier to open up about your problems. (As long as you have private space to talk.)

Research has shown that online work is equally as effective as working face-to-face, and I warmly recommend that you give it a try.

About me and my therapy practice

Counselling by Zoom, Phone, Text or Email.

It takes huge courage to admit that we are struggling, and even more courage to reach out to someone who can help.

Practice description

Text Chat:

Your session is 50 minutes (and the text remains available afterwards, allowing you to review what both you and I said). This gives you the opportunity to clarify any uncertainties you may have from your session and also leaves you with something to go back to as you process the information. You do not need a webcam or computer/laptop for this type of counselling.

Webcam Counselling:

We will meet on Zoom at a time that we have previously arranged. Sessions are 50 minutes in length. Being able to see your counsellor gives you some of the benefits of face-to-face counselling but with the convenience of online therapy. A disadvantage of webcam counselling is that you need a private room where you will not be overheard.

Email counselling:

Counselling using email offers you the opportunity to consider what you wish to say before you send it as well as time between exchanges to reflect on the information you have received. A consideration of email counselling is the time delay between your mail and the return mail and this makes email counselling ineffective when urgency is a priority.

Telephone counselling:

An advantage of telephone counselling is that non-verbal communication can be carried in your tone of voice or the pace of speech which can be picked up by your counsellor. A disadvantage of telephone counselling is that you need a private room where you will not be overheard.

My first session

On your first session I will explain the type of counselling I offer and we will discuss the Contract that you will sign if you wish to work with me (I would be happy to email this to you in advance of the first session if you prefer).
