About me

People come to counselling for all sorts of reasons. Sometimes something goes wrong - we have a bad experience, or a series of bad experiences and we can get stuck with particular emotions and associated behaviours.

As life can be very fast at times, we can often quite easily push these bad experiences to the back of our minds and carry on without dealing with the impact of the situation. We can only do this however for so long before it affects how you feel.

It can seem like there are too many things to deal with and the simplest of things can feel too much to cope with.

You may feel alone or find yourself crying a lot and may not want to be involved with your family or friends.

You may have no interest or find no pleasure in anything or even criticize yourself when you do things or believe others are critical of you.

Counselling is the opportunity for you to talk to another who can listen without judgment and provide feedback which helps you to clarify your own thoughts and feelings. This may help you to move forward in life with greater acceptance and understanding of yourself and others.

This list is not exhaustive and is personal to the individual.

I also offer Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing, commonly known as EMDR, originated by Francine Shapiro.

EMDR is a powerful psychological specialist treatment method that can help treat people who are expressing symptoms which stem from a traumatic event.

Traumas come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Some are major traumas, some can be minor traumas.

If they can leave you with symptoms that affect the way you live your life for example anxious, negative beliefs, flashbacks, nightmares, phobias, then EMDR may be able to help you.

Further information

As a supervisor I am also aware of the dilemmas that may occur because I have accountability not only to the supervisee but also to the client.

Attending regular monthly supervision allows the counsellor to continue working autonomously within their professional role.

Supervision is a process through which the counsellor can reflect upon their work with clients. I use my own experience to offer encouragement and to enable counsellors to identify their thoughts and feelings.

Counsellors can also reflect upon the likely impact of future interventions with clients and understand any underlying dynamics that may be occurring.

Supervision may not only involve clients, it can also be a time for counsellors to reflect on their own personnel growth and learning.
