You are unique. Whatever the issue that has brought you here, my aim is to work hard to see the world as you see it. We can then deepen an understanding of how this view of the world affects your life, with all its up and downs, and your relationships. I am an Accredited Counsellor able to offer low cost sessions to daytime clients, with evening appointments available also. Life can present difficult issues which we may find it hard to speak about to family or friends. I aim to offer warmth, experience and confidentiality.
I am a psychodynamic counsellor registered and accredited by the BACP with over 10 years experience. I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling from the University of Hertfordshire. I was previously a psychiatric nurse working in the community attached to a GP practice and during this time I completed a course of study at the Institute of Group Analysis.
I work in an open-ended way offering clients the opportunity to explore the difficulties they are facing, to understand themselves and their relationships better and to make more informed life choices. I have also trained in Solution Focused Brief Therapy and offer time-limited counselling which can address a specific area of the clients life.
In addition to my private practice, I work for an agency offering counselling to parents/carers of children with special needs. I have previously worked in a Bereavement Service and have been a volunteer counsellor at a Womens Centre for 10 years. I have experience of working with clients who have faced a wide range of issues: in particular childhood abuse, domestic violence, loss and bereavement, anxiety and depression, and disability.
I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy and I have Public Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurance. I attend regular supervision, in line with BACP requirements, to support my work and further my professional development.
