Seeking counselling can be a daunting experience, but exploring aspects of ourselves which lie under the surface of everyday life - why we think, feel and behave as we do, what has shaped us and what we need to feel content, fulfilled or motivated, what our choices may mean and what our resources are - can abundantly reward the effort.
My approach is balanced and flexible, with a constructive and realistic understanding of life's difficulties. Whether the focus be current problems or a trauma, lack or wound from the past, my collaborative style can enable you to deepen your understanding and acceptance of yourself and to access your own resources to facilitate growth and change.
I offer both short and long-term counselling. During the initial assessment we can explore your goals and if you decide to go ahead we can focus on specific current issues, or alternatively we can consider your life experiences and how they relate to the present. Regular joint reviews of how the work is going can ensure your priorities are central.
I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist with experience in the voluntary sector, schools and a GP surgery.
I have experience working with a wide range of problems including depression and anxiety, bereavement, relationship difficulties, abuse, anger, low self-esteem, stress and overload, sexuality, self-harm, health- and work-related matters.
Training, qualifications & experience
Four year training leading to a Post-graduate Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy. Prior to this I completed a Certificate Course in Psychodynamic Theory and Counselling Skills.
I am a Registered Member of the BACP and abide by the BACP Ethical Framework.
I currently work as a Young People's Counsellor in a GP surgery, and with adults as a volunteer counsellor in a local agency.
I was a Registered Nurse for many years, working in palliative and domiciliary care. This has allowed me the privilege of accompanying many people though profoundly difficult experiences. I have a particular interest in health related matters, disability and the challenges it presents for the person concerned and those close to them. I have conducted a research dissertation into the growth which may arise from loss.
