Non-judgemental, supportive counselling can provide a way out of what might feel like a maze, and offer the prospect of real change in your life. I aim to provide a supportive environment where distress or confusion can be safely expressed and gently explored. You may be struggling with old hurts or recent distress; I have over ten years' experience with clients who seek relief from, and insight into, their concerns.
Beginning counselling or therapy can seem daunting; contact me if you'd like a little more information, or to book a no-obligation assessment session.
I offer one-to-one counselling or psychotherapy with adult clients in a private, comfortable environment.
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and am listed on the BACP Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I am, therefore, committed to adherance to the Framework for Ethical Practice.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained as a counsellor at the University of Leicester, a centre of excellence in this field and have the following awards:
* Certificate in Counselling Studies
* Higher Education Diploma in Contemporary Psychodynamic Counselling
* BA (Hons) Counselling
In addition to my psychodynamic training, I've studied Transactional Analysis (TA) and Mindfulness. Psychodynamic work tends to look at our past and how that's impacting on us now; TA looks at how we relate to others and where that might be going wrong and Mindfulness is the increasingly well-known practice which can help with relaxation and focus. Do look at the dedicated page on the Counselling Directory website for a full and helpful description.
I use the 'theoreticaI approaches' or 'tools' which are most relevant to an individual client. In addition, I have studied specialist areas such as depression, loss and bereavement, surviving sexual abuse for both men and women, and the impact of disability.
Working both in private practice and formerly at the Leicester Counselling Centre, I have experience of a whole range of client issues, including depression and it's causes, childlessness, stillbirth, bereavement, abuse, redundancy and work problems, and the complexities of relationships.
