Welcome to my profile: I believe that having counselling is a sign of courage ; you are deciding
to face up to the challenges you are experiencing and looking for counselling can be the first step in a life -
None of us goes through life without at times feeling unhappy, anxious or confused at some point ; with 20
years experience as a counsellor, I have an extensive and varied experience of working with most issues.
Also I bring my own life experiences , as well as and a deep and professional training and experience to this
I will offer you a warm, safe and supportive relationship in which we can explore together the challenges you
are experiencing --- whatever they may be. - so that you can begin to believe in yourself again . With
increased awareness and resilience we can work through these unresolved issues, perhaps changing
habitual patterns and responses to begin to make the changes you want to make.
My approach is humanistic and integrative ; that means I can and draw s on a number of therapeutic
approaches during our work together ; theses are therapies endorsed and respected by the BACP and
include CBT and mindfulness ; for many of us the past and childhood issues may be affecting our present
life's and relationships , and in counselling we can safely explore these past issues in order to move forward
creatively with insight andunderstanding
I am also a qualified and experienced counselling supervisor and an hypnotherapist
i am also a lecturer in counselling ( cpcab )

A recent client said to me that if he had the time and the money he would continue with counselling every
week for the rest of his life - he had found it such a life enhancing experience . I agree ! Life is always
changing and often challenging and, to have someone there for you for an hour every week, offering you
insight, compassion, understanding and empathy is. such a wonderful thing ; that is what I aim to bring to
every counselling session session I have with a client.
