MORE ABOUT YOUR THERAPIST
Having been counselling for 20 years, I have significant experience of working with a wide variety of difficulties; I can offer you a respectful, non-judgemental environment where you can share and feel listened to. I understand that it is not easy to face challenges and stressful emotions, so I can provide a warm, supportive space to help you explore your feelings and make sense of what you are going through with sensitivity and openness.
I have worked in different agency settings including; general counselling, Hospice support, GP surgeries, EAP (employment assistance programme) as well as running a private practice for 15 years.
I am a BACP Senior Accredited member as well as a UKCP registered psychotherapist.
Trauma - both current and historic abuse
Coping with illness
Anxiety and depression
I am an integrative therapist, which means I use different theories to best tailor the therapy to suit you. I value building a good rapport together, so that you feel safe and comfortable with me as your therapist. I have training in Psychodynamic and Person-Centred counselling, as well as Trauma Therapy and CBT.
I have been practising as a supervisor for 12 years and I am a BACP Accredited supervisor and a UKCP registered supervisor.
I offer you a supportive environment to discuss and reflect on your practice, promoting self-awareness in your work. Together we can identify areas you do well and any areas needing further development. You can discuss any issues that affect your practice (both personally or professionally) to help us consider any support you might need. I provide a confidential environment to discuss any ethical dilemmas and ensure that you are working within professional guidelines.

Supporting trainee counsellors
Supporting qualified counsellors through the BACP accreditation process
I offer both individual and group supervision and follow the supervision model set out by Inskipp and Proctor:
Normative - ensuring that you are working within professional guidelines and the opportunity to discuss ethical dilemmas.
Formative - reflective practice aiming to better understand processes and ways of working. Exploring various aspects of your work and reviewing things that work well and areas that need further development/training.
Restorative - I provide a supportive space promoting self-awareness so that you can learn to recognise your own needs and attend to them. A place to discuss issues both personal and professional that impinge on your practice.
