I am MBACP accredited, UKRCP Registered Independent Counsellor. I obtained my humanistic counselling diploma in 2001, and have since completed training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy for the Treatment of Trauma (Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute, USA). I have extensive experience of working with diverse clinical issues including: recovery from childhood sexual abuse and/or sexual violation in adulthood, relationship problems, anxiety, eating distress, addiction, stress, psychological trauma, depression, self injury, mental health issues & low self esteem/worth.
Professional Development & Supervision
I am committed to my professional development and as such I attend regular clinical supervision to support my client work. I also attend workshops, trainings and conferences on a regular basis. My clinical approach is integrative, which means that I adapt my approach to support the changing needs of each individual.
The relationship between counsellor and client is of paramount importance, for this reason I aim to provide a trusting, supportive relationship in which healing can occur.
Each session lasts for 50 minutes and are usually once a week. My fee is £40 per session. If 6 sessions are booked and paid for in advance the fee is £220.
I am a qualified couple counsellor working with many issues within relationships.
Each session lasts for 1 hour and are usually once a week. My fee is £50 per session. If 6 sessions are booked and paid for in advance the fee is £280.
I am a qualified clinical supervisor and have experience in both individual and group supervision.
I am a qualified group worker and I am currently co-facilitating weekend workshops, aimed at women to help raise their self-awareness, self-esteem and self-confidence. The groups aim is to support women to look at themselves and ask "Who Am I?" within a 'safe enough' environment. We will look at what influences individuals, both current and historic and how each person functions within relationships. Please contact me for dates for this workshop. The cost is £99 for the weekend.
