About me

Welcome to my professional profile and I hope that you will find within it some help to decide if my work experience and methods of working with people may be what you are looking for. I've been working in the field of psychological therapy since qualifying in 1998.  I can work with clients using an integrative model, including therapies such as Rational Emotive Brief Therapy (REBT), Solution Focused Therapy and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR). My work is also person centred and I will work with you in both a compassionate and directive way.

I began my counselling career working in the private sector with individuals and families. I enjoyed working both with groups providing Group Therapy and with individuals 1:1. Psychological Education has been a large component of my work with people. I then worked within Employee Assistance Programmes (EAPs), clinically with clients 1:1 and managerially, managing supervisory aspects and managing the liaison between the EAP and the organisation for which the counselling was being provided. A large component of my work was in provision of psychological debriefing in the aftermath of traumatic incidents. I achieved BACP Accreditation and became an Accredited counsellor. I subsequently continue my counselling career within the public sector in Healthcare within the NHS providing and overseeing the provision of counselling in the workplace, working psychotherapeutically helping people to overcome trauma and a wide range of multi faceted presenting issues.

I have 20 years of significant, robust, clinical therapeutic working practice and strong experience in the field of counselling, therapy and supervision. I have substantial experience of working with the following issues, amongst others:

  • Complex histories
  • Working in the now/planning for the future
  • Childhood sexual abuse
  • Trauma
  • Trauma management
  • Post Traumatic Stress
  • Families and Systems
  • Couples
  • Executive, Professional and Management support
  • Anxieties
  • Depression
  • Career progression support
  • Grief, Bereavement and Loss
  • Sexual identity
  • Identity
  • Diversity and difference
  • Cultural issues/cultural adjustment
  • Prejudice and racism
  • Chemical dependency
  • Families/significant others of people who are chemically dependent
  • Bullying/harrasment
  • Mindfulness
  • Compassionate Mind
  • Meditation
  • Relaxation
  • All thoughts, feelings, behaviours, causes of unhappiness and how to change

My experience is in therapeutically assisting people with all kinds of difficulties, unwanted, or not yet understood thoughts, feelings and behaviours, how to cope more assuredly, self-esteem, confidence and more.
