MBACP[ACCR], BA HONS COUNS, DIP COUNS, DIP SUP, UKRCP
I have been in practice since 1999 and am an accredited humanistic counsellor and supervisor. My work has expanded over the last three years to include telephone counselling, and I am an affiliate telephone counsellor for the Royal College of Nursing.
I endeavour to create a safe environment in which my clients can explore their issues at a pace and in a manner which suits them. In this way it is possible for them look at the way in which they respond to experiences and consider change. In this process i consider myself to be a facilitator and seek to empower my clients to acheive this change, working only on issues that they wish to discuss.
I can offer both long-term and short-term counselling, according to individual need.
I have worked with long-term health issues since my start of practice and have a strong belief in the connection between emotional and physical well being. As it may not be possible to change the physical I believe individuals can work towards acceptance and hopefully limit the impact on their daily life.
My work with adolescents has been varied, including voluntary agencies as a counsellor and supervisor, student counselling, and children in the care of the local authority.
I worked for Bristol Drugs Project for three years and have worked with addictions in my private practice for a number of years.
I have had referral contracts from the PCT and Local Authority.
