Life is complicated, we all have good days and bad days and sometimes we need a little help. Often people say they do not feel that their problem is big enough or that other people are more deserving of help - but if it is a problem for you it is worth talking about. Counselling provides you a with a space to step outside your normal life to consider what is going on. It can be really helpful to share your situation with someone who is non judgmental and who has no vested interest in the outcome this can help you get a fresh perspective or resolve stuckness.

My style is interactive with a common sense conversational approach. I think it is important to work in a collaborative and encouraging way one size does not fit all. I therefore work in an integrative way to try to work with you in a way that suits your needs. I have worked with lots of different issues in a variety of settings including NHS GP surgery, Cruse, Center 33, and the University Counselling Service. Working with individuals and couples I can offer both short and long term therapy depending on your requirements. I do sometimes offer one-off appointments or we a shot MoT style package to carry out a quick 'life laundry', or work in a solution focused way on a specific issue. This can also be a way for you to see if you think therapy might help you.

I work with lots of different issues. I do have a particular interest in working with bereavement or loss, relationship difficulties or people facing a transition or change in their life. I also have a strong interest and experience in problems arising from pregnancy, birth and parenting, including the death of a baby or child, premature birth, infertility and miscarriages. I have also trained as a coach and worked in a variety of business settings so am happy to help you with work related issues. But whatever brings you to counselling I am happy to help.

Online Supervisor Profile

As a trained and qualified supervisor I can offer supervision to other counsellors, trainees therapists, teachers or healthcare or any professionals working in a caring or supportive role either as individuals or small groups.

Supervision is a space for you to reflect on your work to learn and grow and to feel supported. It is a chance for you to step outside your work and talk about areas you are not able to discuss with others due to confidentiality. There are often patterns and themes in your work which may become apparent. It can be interesting to see how these relate to your own personal circumstances.
It provides you with a space to share all aspects of your work with clients or people you are supporting as well as considering any ethical or boundary or organisational issues.
I am a non judgemental encouraging supervisor and hope our work together will enable you to feel supported and be able to grow. Most importantly it is part of your self care.

I currently work with a range of levels of experience from trainees to experienced counsellors and a variety of orientations.
As well as working with private supervisees I currently work as a supervisor for Center 33 and offer support for those in a caring role who are not counsellors from other professions.
Previously been a supervisor with Cruse and STARS and for trainees on the Adlerian counselling diploma.

I have both a Certificate and Diploma in Supervision (Adlerian/Integrative) awarded by Cambridge Supervision Training and Accredited by ASIIP and a Diploma in online counselling supervision awarded by OCST and recognised by ACTO.

I work in an Adlarian, humanistic and intragetive way
