About me

I am a BACP Registered/Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist, working with adults, teenagers/children (with parental consent), families and couples. My approach is integrative, drawing on various modalities and theories. I believe that the counselling relationship is of prime importance when helping people to make changes in their lives. Amongst using many creative methods in my work, I specialise in the use of Humanistic Sandtray/Sandplay Therapy which facilitates exploration, expression, awareness and discovery and is beneficial for clients (adults and children) who are stuck, unable to express pain in words, or are unable to understand their own process.  When working with clients short term CBT and Solution Focussed Therapy are models of therapy that I may use as a framework. 

As a BACP Member I am bound by the Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am committed to CPD to enhance and inform my practice. I hold an Enhanced CRB Disclosure.

I am a qualified Clinical Supervisor of Individuals and Groups having trained at The Grove Practice in London, taught at post-graduate level. Supervision supports protection of clients, is a reflective space providing insights for improvement in practice; helps to identify strengths and weaknesses; gains learning from peers; provides opportunity to keep up to date with professional developments; alerts ethical and professional issues; allows practitioners to measure impact of work on their lives and identify personal reactions to their professional work; is a forum to consider and hold tensions that emerge; offers a third person perspective from myself as supervisor who is not part of client system; provides welfare and better service to client; is a forum of accountability.

I am also an Accredited by European College of Bowen Studies (ECBS) as a Bowen Technique Practitioner.  The Bowen Technique is a remedial therapy tool that offers the body an opportunity to restore structural integrity, be it physical or emotional pain; it is different to any other form of body therapy in that it does not work at the will of the therapist, it allows the body to assimilate the information given by the therapist through rolling type body moves.

I qualified with The Coaching Academy as a Youth Impact Coach and Corporate & Executive Coach and specialise in Relationship Coaching, which involves Work Relationships and Personal Relationships.  Coaching is different to Counselling in that it is totally focussed in the here and now, supporting you in making changes and setting goals for the future, helping you to achieve such goals, which may involve recognition of possible obstacles and then exploring options to enable you to make the changes and move forward in your life. Coaching is action focussed and encourages you to set specific dates/timescales in order to make plans/hopes and dreams come alive.

Youth Impact Coaching can be helpful for young people who are in transitional periods of their lives and struggling with personal relationships, be it family or friends; it also helps to encourage positive thinking, making of positive changes, achieving hopes for the future.

Positive relationships in the workplace are an important factor; I specialise in Coaching Leaders, Executives and Managers to focus on building positive relationships in the working envirionment which has a positive impact on morale of the workforce and in turn this helps to increase productivity.
