I am a member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) which means that I adhere to their code of ethics and framework for good practice. As required by the BACP, I am in regular supervision and follow an ongoing programme of continuing professional development.
I’m also a member of the INLPTA International NLP Trainers Association and ABH the American Board of Hypnotherapy.

I hope you find all you need to know on here or on my website. Feel free to contact me by phone or Email if you would like to no more.

HOW I WORK

I provide a safe and confidential space and, with a warm, insightful nature, I hope to help you to feel comfortable in your environment. My goal is to create a place where you feel you can build trust which will allow you to start exploring difficult and perhaps unwanted feelings in your life.

ENVIRONMENT Website%20pics%20of%20me%20025.jpg

I try to create an environment where you feel accepted, unjudged and supported throughout our time together, whilst also empathising with the feelings and emotions that you bring into the room. I also try and stay true to my own feelings during our working relationship and will be congruent in my reactions with everything that you bring to each session.

THE SESSIONS

Our sessions together are like a journey; a chance for you to explore unwanted and difficult emotions whilst feeling supported and safe. We will look at finding your inner strengths so that you can build on them and begin to utilise them in everyday life through self knowledge and awareness. By engaging in counselling, we can work together to develop various tools and skills to enhance your psychological well-being.

My counselling approach is Integrative which means that I draw on a range of therapeutic techniques (CBT, Gestalt, person centered and NLP) in my work depending on what seems most suitable for you and your needs.

ADULTS, TEENAGERS AND CHILDREN

I work both with couples or individuals depending on the clients issues.
As well as working with adults I am also very experienced with working with children and teenagers, after my time as a school Counselling at Honiton Community College having to deal with different personal issues they brought to the sessions.

As many children & teenagers find difficulty in expressing their thoughts and feelings, so I tend to use tools like sand-play, drawing, writing to help them express themselves better.

I am also very experienced in dealing with many adult issues for example: relationships, Bereavement, Anger, Depression and Anxiety     (more listed on website)

FIRST TIME

If you have never experienced counselling before the prospect of talking about yourself can seem somewhat daunting. I therefore like to offer an initial session where we can assess and explore what has brought you to counselling and what you would like to get out of it. Most importantly, you can experience how I am as a counsellor and decide if my style is right for you.
