About me and my therapy practice
Having had over 25 years of experience working as a therapeutic counsellor BACP (SNR Accre) working with individuals and couples, providing short and long term work.
I work by the BACP Ethical Framework and receive regular professional supervision from experienced practitioners.
I know it is not always easy and often daunting coming for counselling whether you come as an individual or as a couple.
Being warm and engaging as well as practical helps to create a safe place to explore the issues you bring.
I am a Humanistic Integrative Counsellor and draw from a variety of theoretical models, Person centred, Psychodynamic, Gestalt, Cognitive Behavioural (CBT) to enable me to respond to the individual needs of my client.
Working with issues of low self-esteem, stress and panic, anxiety and depression, relationship difficulties, bereavement, loss, abuse, workplace stress.
Having had a variety of experience working with student counsellors in training for personal development.

Experience of working in the University student counselling service, alcohol and drugs agency as well as a community mental health setting.
I also work as an affiliate counsellor for several EAP national organisations as well as holding registration for Aviva and Bupa Insurance healthcare providers.
