Are you going through a challenging time? Finding it hard to cope? Do you need some support?

Counselling is a conversation with a trained listener, where you talk and we firstly identify your issues. It's then a process of working together to find your answers without advice or judgement.

What to expect?

On the very first session I will ask you for your goal, or what you wish to achieve. We will work at your pace towards the change you are looking for, clarifying along the way that you have not changed your goal.

You will do most of the talking. I do the listening and then reflect back what I have heard.

At all times you will be held under the umbrella of unconditional positive regard, empathic listening, with total confidentially upheld. Once a month I attend supervision where we make sure I am working at a clients best interests at all times.

I work under the BACP code of ethics.

I work from short term through to long term.

Where I work from

I am happy to work with you in your local Park. People just walk past us, sometimes we will get a smile or a hello, a dog might run up to us with a wagging tail. We enjoy the fresh air, the flowers, the ambiance of the day. As of yet I haven't had anybody come and sit along side us while we are working, but I don't see it being a problem, we could always move on.
Alternatively, some people prefer to meet in their own homes, others a coffee shop or pub.

Counselling is a conversation with a trained listener, where you talk and we firstly identify your issues. It's then a process of working together to find your answers without advice or judgement.

If you think I can help please contact me. We will have a brief telephone conversation then arrange an initial appointment lasting 50 minutes to fit in with your schedule.

For counselling to work we have to build a relationship of trust which can take time, but during the process you will be listened to with empathy and unconditional positive regard. Our first session will be about getting to know each other. It sounds formal but I will let you know about confidentiality and the BACP code of ethics that I work within.

A bit about me...

Previously, after hitting an all time low in my life, I started doing voluntary work helping prisoners to get aid towards rebuilding their life,

I took the four year advanced diploma in person centred counselling, and did my basic hours in the same open prison gaining a vast wealth of experience. I carried on gaining experience for many years before moving on to building up a private practice.

I have 4 grown up children who have challenged and opened up my life, taking me to wonderful places I never dreamed existed, and emotions I never knew I had.

I enjoy a wide range of activities from going out to the theatre, sea fishing, camping, watching football and rugby. I love cooking and eating out and especially going out on my motorbike. I find this helps to recharge my batteries and puts me in touch with all my senses.

Each year you will find me riding in the British Legions "Ride of Respect" and the newly formed "Ring of Red" along with the "Lee Rigby ride" and anything else that supports our armed services.

Training, qualifications & experience

Advanced Diploma in Therapeutic counselling.

Wide range of TA workshops, including discussion groups on all stages of parent adult and child ego states.

I am in constant professional education backed up with a wide range of reading. Some of my more recent self development courses have been Transgender issues and Couples counselling.
