I have been working in the caring professions all my working life. I worked for 9 years with adults doing short term and long term counselling with referrals from GPs. Prior to this I worked for two years in a psychodynamic organisation with adults for up to two years. For the past six years I have been working as a private counsellor working long and short term counselling with adults.
About My Sessions
I offer an integrated approach which means that I drew on different counselling theories in my work as appropriate to the client and issues that they present with.
I acknowledge that the client is a expert on themselves.
I see the sessions as client driven placing value on individual autonomy and reflection rather than analysis. I work cooperatively with the client to assist them to find their own way to personal development and positive change.
I see counselling as a two way relationship both working towards a better understanding of the the difficulties and issues that you are experiencing. I aim to help you to gain the confidence and self awareness to make better decisions and take more control of your life. I offer a non-judgmental respectful space with a genuine desire for us to work together to help you to better understand your self and support you to make your own decisions.
I work in the Lyndhurst Surgery at present one evening a week.
I work in the 41 Woodhouse Road Monday to Thursday 9.00 to 9.00pm.
