What is Counselling?                                                   img1423667756.jpeg

Counselling provides a safe and supportive environment in which to talk through your thoughts and problems and reflect on past and present events with a knowledgeable, non-judgemental professional. It gives you a confidential place to 'let off steam' and express your feelings. It encourages us to take an honest look at our current thoughts, feelings and behaviours that may be preventing us from moving forward. It helps us to find ways of changing these overwhelming emotions in a way that will take us to a safer and more secure place. It can often provide an environment to understand and learn about ourselves so that we can take control of and responsibility for our lives.


How I work

As a counsellor I will listen and help you explore and make sense of your current feelings, thoughts and behaviour, we may identify patterns that have their roots in your past experiences. As counselling progresses you may gain insights and work with me to find more helpful ways of coping with your problems and feelings.

Coming to counselling can often be seen as a journey and sometimes the first step is the hardest step. However every journey starts with one step and maybe you have taken that first step today by looking at my profile.

Training, qualifications & experience

I undertook a five year training programme to become a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and Couples Counsellor.

I have worked in education for 15 years and previously in primary care. I also have a military background.

As well as my private practice I also contribute Counselling to charitable organisations and I am a committee member of the Swindon Counsellors & Psychotherapists Network.

Therapies Offered:

Psychodynamic & CBT

Psychodynamic therapy offers an opportunity to talk through your concerns and difficulties with a trained therapist in confidence and at your own pace. It works from the belief that experiences in the past unconsciously affect how we feel and behave in the present.

CBT links our thought patterns to our behaviour and feelings.

I have continued to learn and experience and update my way of working as a Counsellor and I adapt different approaches, when appropriate, to the needs of my clients, seeing that everyone and their needs are different.

Member Organisations:

As a full member of British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists (BACP) I adhere to their ethical framework.
