About me

Quite simply counselling can change lives. More often than not when someone is looking for a counsellor they have often recognised that something needs to change. I have over 17 years’ extensive experience working with adults, parents, children, teenagers, adults, families and couples.

Specialist Areas

A special interest is working alongside children and adults who have specific conditions such as Autism and the many behaviour disorders such as ADHD.

Working with anyone under 18 years of age – this is an area of speciality. Sometimes it is appropriate to integrate the work with a young person into family work or sometimes the other way around.

I work with Adults, Parents, Families and couples, teenagers and children.

Safeguarding

I have an enhanced DBS (disclosure barring service) that is live and can be accessed by the relevant person or organisation in real time.

I work with safeguarding/child protection issues in relation to vulnerable persons. This is an area where experience, confidentiality and sensitivity are absolutely essential. Often organisations will seek support for their staff in times of crisis and parents/carers will seek support for the young person(S). Often safeguarding/child protection issues hit families and organisations without warning and can be devastating.

Private individuals or working with schools or companies

Over the years I have developed bespoke solutions for large and small, educational (private and state) and commercial organisations.  Supporting employees is a duty of care every employer must provide. Working with companies/schools I can provide the employer and the employee a wide range of focused services often in a very cost effective way. I often work alongside OH and HR organisations.

About my practice

My practice is based on an integrative approach, focusing on the importance of building a strong therapeutic relationship in short and long term arrangements with individuals and organisations. I always work within a person’s learning style and adapt my practice to suit.

My practice is delivered face to face, on the telephone and using Skype.

When appropriate I integrate my dog as pets for therapy.

I hold professional indemnity insurance.

What I can help with

I specialise in complex cases and I can often bring around a positive change. I am used to being called upon to implement critical incident policy and procedure that I have written and developed over the years.

I often take referrals from GP’s and employer assisted programmes and other organisations as well as privare referrals.

Abuse, ADD/ADHD, addiction(s), adoption, adoption issues, anger management, anxiety, asperger ayndrome, bereavement, business coaching, cancer, career coaching, child related issues, chronic fatigue syndrome/ME therapy, coaching supervision, cultural issues, depression, disability, dissociation, eating disorders, xecutive coaching, general counselling, health related issues, identity problems, leadership coaching, life coaching, loss, men’s issues, mental health issues, obsessions, OCD, personal development, phobias, post-traumatic stress, pregnancy related issues, redundancy, relationships, self-esteem, self-harm, service veterans, sex related issues, sexual identity, sexuality, stress, trauma, women’s issues, Work related issues, relationship Issues.

Fees

First appointment £45.00-£70.00

Our first appointment will be an opportunity for us to meet face to face in the environment where we would both be working.The initial session gives everyone concerned a chance to explore what has caused us to meet and it will also give you a sense of how working together would feel if we both decide to work behond the intial session.

The first session is without obligation on either side to continue past the first meeting. If we felt we couldnt work together i would most probably recommend someone who could prossibly work with you. This doesnt happen very often but on the ocassions it does then i will try my best to recommend some with the correct skill and experience to work with you. Aditional letters or reports would be charged for at an agreed fee.

If we are going to work together it is important to agree how and when we carry this out. It is important to agree many things in the first meeting. This is what counsellors call a contact. This is nothing to worry about as it a way of ensuring counselling is an effective and safe tool to help you.
