About me

We come to crossroads in life that we never thought we’d ever be at. They can be painful and confusing, while, at the same time, reducing our confidence to deal with the fall out. I provide a safe, non-judgemental space where feelings and situations can be explored.

About me

I have been involved with counselling and psychotherapy for over thirty years. I have worked with Relate and in Higher Education, the latter having a high proportion of mature students is a reflection of the problems found in society at large. I have a small number of private clients and I offer short and longer term counselling and psychotherapy to individuals and couples. Therapy can be weekly or fortnightly.

Counselling/Psychotherapy

Very often in life people find themselves in a place of real frustration and distress, because they cannot always understand their emotions and reactions. Talking about problems externalizes them, they are shared and this gives us the opportunity to look at areas that can be frightening and uncomfortable, so that greater understanding can be achieved.

Therapy is not a magic solution, however, a trusting relationship with the therapist can allow issues to be explored, and we have the chance to get to know ourselves better, so that our options are informed choices.

I consider myself to be a down to earth and practical person. I work intuitively and I realise how difficult it is to uncover areas in our lives that are causing us pain.

Good therapy has clear boundaries, it is jargon free and respectful to the individual client who is always in control, however, it demands commitment from both client and therapist so that trust can evolve and a productive relationship can ensue. 

Supervision

I have provided clinical supervision to counsellors for over twenty years. I see supervision as a collaborative process, where hopefully there is sufficient trust, between the individuals involved, to allow for creative play with the clinical material.
