I hold a degree in Person Centred counselling from the Metanoia Institute and have been working with individuals both privately and in a corporate setting for over 15 years. My motivation is to provide a relationship whereby you can safely explore your inner world and become empowered to live a full and authentic life. I try to see the world through your eyes and perspective and place a strong emphasis on being client led. In other words, I am guided by you regarding the issues you want to explore and the pace of our work together. My aim is to help provide a safe environment to facilitate this and assist you to find clarity on the issues that arise.
I am aware that sharing your problems can feel quite daunting, particularly if its the first time, and I believe a good working relationship between counsellor and client is essential. My hope is that you will experience me as being genuine, sincere and accepting, and our first meeting will be an opportunity for us both to see how we relate to each other. I work in an open ended way, with no time limitations, or for an agreed time period if preferred.
Training, qualifications & experience
As well as my degree in Person Centred counselling I have also completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Attachment Theory. Working with attachment issues can develop an understanding of how early relationships can influence the way we relate throughout our lives. I also hold a certificate in Group Work and in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction(MBSR). I have many years experience of work place and crises counselling and through my ongoing work as a counsellor and supervisor within an international airline, have gained a thorough understanding of aviation psychology. I also design and facilitate courses in Counselling Skills, Empathy and Emotional Resilience, at a corporate or more individual level.
I work in a variety of settings, within an holistic therapy centre, from home and British Airways.
As a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists, I work within their Ethical Framework of Good Practice. In adherence to these guidelines and to ensure I am working professionally, I undergo regular supervision of my work.
