About me

I undertake both brief counselling and long term work with single and couple clients, principally using Psychodynamic counselling which involves helping clients to make links with issues from their past to the present and often deals with regression and repression but I also practise Integratively (utilising one or more counselling approaches according to the therapeutic needs of my client) and, where appropriate, use Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) which can assist in changing negative thought patterns to positive ones.

Specialisms include:
  Anxiety and panic attacks;
  Work related stress;
  OCD and depression;
  Couples and Relationship Counselling;
  Bereavement Counselling including counselling relatives and friends of those suffering from terminal   illness.
  Suicide awareness training;
  Working with survivors of abuse;
  Writing and delivering Bereavement Training programmes and facilitating and working with groups;

I work with issues about careers, some of which can cause stress and depression, and am also trained in Information, Advice & Guidance which I have provided in both institutional and individual settings.

I undertake work for insurance companies and agencies dealing with accident claims and other health issues where counselling or psychotherapeutic treatments might be helpful.

I am qualified to provide Clinical Supervision both one-to-one and in groups.

Training, qualifications & experience

I gained my qualifications to practise over a 7 year period and have 16 years experience of Counselling and Psychotherapy, working with clients with a wide range of issues.

I have a BA Honours degree in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy, a Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling and an Advanced Certificate in Therapeutic Counselling. As part of my degree I have undertaken training in CBT and have experience of working with clients wanting this approach.

I also have a Post Graduate Certificate in Clinical Supervision (Level 7 - MA standard).

I am a Qualified Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and a Member of the Association of Independent Practitioners.

In addition to my private practice work, I have managed the Counselling and Bereavement Service of the Island's Earl Mountbatten Hospice for 5 years.
