About me

My professional counselling services are, and I say this with tongue in cheek, to that similar of a computer. For instance sometimes when we have a virus we have to 'go back' or 'restore' don't we, I advocate this methodology interpreted into my counselling skills - who knows how far the 'restore' button has to go back in order for the repair to take place. So restoration with a client v computer is relatively the same because software has to be re-installed with drivers that are not tarnished with a virus that will affect the computer.

Conversely this happens with a client. Bit by bit the outer layers of issues or problems that have occurred and re-occur, are examined and talked about and reasonably accepted. Contamination I referred to above has now disappeared and ones life is gently put back into place - making the client feel whole again.  And I add that I will be with you one step at a time for the journey.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been studying it seems for at least ten years. Initially I undertook an Open University degree in Psychology having studied;

Social Science
Child Psychology
Exploring Psychology

then embarked on Criminal Psychology with Psychological Studies. Total year of studies is 4 years.

I attended an initial elementary stage of counselling at college then again the intermediate, which is conditional before entering university.I then gained a Diploma in Humanistic Counselling at Chichester University and a Diploma in NLP Counselling.

I have attended workshops in Art Therapy, Sexual Therapy, drugs?alcohol, addiction and bereavement and have worked for the NHS, MacMillan Nurses, bereavement Counselling based at Eastbourne. The  Terrance Higgins Trust, Action for Change and the Homeless.

Member organisations

BACP

Fees

The optimum charge is £40 - the price is based on payment to my own counsellor and supervisor which are conditional as part of being a counsellor and also for any items I use for instance, paint, paper, overalls etc.

However that price can be lowered considering the clients finance.

Further information

I offer a 50 minute service which requires the client to arrive promptly on the same day each week. An assessment will take place initially to understand whether a good client/counsellor relationship is agreed, or if either party feel that a therapeutic alliance is not suitable for counselling.
