MORE ABOUT YOUR THERAPIST
Choosing the right counsellor to provide support is not always easy. I hope the content of my directory entry will provide you with information to help make a decision on the best choice for you, In all cases giving careful attention to both the medium of counselling being offered and the qualifications and experience of your chosen counsellor is an important factor in this process. I am a senior BACP Accredited Counsellor. As an accredited counsellor my practice is grounded within the BACP Ethical Framework. I also work as a supervisor and trainer online.I frequently provide consultancy services to services who are piloting an e-counselling service for their clients. There are different mediums available for you to choose from, and you choose which would feel more comfortable for you. At the present time I am offering online counselling via Instant messenging, webcam or voice. All appointments take place on a secure platform where privacy can be assured.
If you are feeling in need of counselling support and experiencing personal issues that are directly affecting how you feel, which may include those in the list below, I have over 26 years experience of supporting clients to find a way forward and resolution with such personal dififculties:
Anxiety, Bereavement, Depression, Relationship, Family or Marital Difficulties, Sexuality, Sexual Abuse, Phobias, Eating Difficulties, Life style changes including Redundancy and Retirement, Pet or Animal Bereavement. Discrimination at work and within your personal life. This list is not exhaustive, and offers insight to common themes which clients have brought to my practice over the 26 years.
There may be other issues which are impacting upon your life and well being. I have been in Counselling practice since 1995 and have experience in providing counselling support to clients for all matters which lead individuals or couples to seek counselling.
Life events can arise for everyone and leave us feeling unable to manage day to day life and relationships as effectively as we would hope for. Often these life events and personal issues have begun due to circumstances which feel beyond our control. Counselling offers a safe and confidential space where the therapist helps the client to explore how to find ways forward with either managing or changing the difficulties they are facing. I believe that by the counsellor offering a non-judgemental and client focused approach this is key in finding a solution to the issues brought to counselling. I have provided therapy support to clients since 1997 and during the last 26 years have worked with clients face to face, via therapy emails, Instant messenging, and voice or webcam. Some clients like the fact that email therapy gives them time to think through what they want to say to the counsellor, whilst also being therapeutic in itself, when writing down thoughts about a situation which are causing the presenting problems. I originally trained in Psychodynamic counselling and moved on in training to cover all aspects of Humanistic counselling. By having such indepth and varied training, this helps me work with you as an individual and tailor the way we work to help you achieve the most positive outcome.
I provide a counselling service for clients of 18 years and upward. I also work with couples, who are experiencing relationship difficulties which have led to a point where one or both parties reach out for therapeutic help. I have extensive experience of working with clients from the LGTBQ communities, both as counsellor and as a counselling supervisor.
I work from an integrative theoretical practice. My foundation training was in Psychodynamic therapy, but later i moved towards a Humanistic and Person Centred approach. I have also completed CBT training. My professional background has been founded in organisational and private practice contexts and extends over 27 years. I originally worked in general counselling practice and within schools, further and higher education positions. My supervision practice has also included these contexts of client work. Having held positions where i was a manager of counselling services, I provide extensive support to counsellors and supervisors who are also holding a clinical lead or managerial role. I can offer supervisees a broad range of experience to help support them in their client and supervision practice, particularly where they are working online, or have adopted a blended approach of face to face and online client work. I regularly support supervisees who are undergoing accreditation with professional bodies such as BACP.
Anxiety, Bereavement, Depression, Relationship, Family or Marital Difficulties, Sexuality, Sexual Abuse, Phobias, Eating Difficulties, Life style changes including Redundancy and Retirement, Discrimination at work and within personal lives. This list is not exhaustive, and offers insight to common themes which supervisees have brought to my practice over the 26 years.

I've been practising as a supervisor of counsellors since 1998, and offering online supervision since 2006. I have trained and qualified as an online supervisor and also provide online supervision training via OCST.
As a BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor, and within my practice as Counselling Supervisor I subscribe to the BACP Ethical Framework for Counselling and Supervision.I am predominantly a Person Centred practitioner, but have studied to MA level within the Humanistic framework for counselling,making my supervision practice very versatile and able to accomodateeach supervisee's indiviual orientation for counselling practice.
I have studied at Leicester University in the two stage course for Psychodynamic Counselling supervision. My counselling approach includes all aspects of Humanistic therapy which originates from my MA Counselling studies at Nottingham University. I am a qualified as an online supervisor. I have an OLT online supervision Diploma and I am registered on the ACTO website directory for approved counsellors and supervisors for online counselling/therapy. I have practiced as a counsellor since 1994 and as a supervisor since 1998
I have provided counselling supervision in many contexts, including:
Private practice, education and youth counselling services, bereavement and pallative care services, voluntary and charitable organisations, and within FE and HE institutions across the UK. This range of experience includes both individual and group supervision for experienced and trainee practitioners.
In my work as a counselling supervisor I have a commitment to being supportive, accessible, and approachable. I also place a strong emphasis on developing a good working relationship with supervisees in which there is an ethical and structured alliance, but one that also provides the space to be creative in exploring client work. The extensive range of my face to face and online counselling and supervision experience during the last 27 years provides a sound base for supervisees to explore their client work and feel contained within that process.
My Supervision fee is £60 per hour for individual supervisess. I offer group online supervision and the fee varies according to the number of participants within the group
