About me

I am a MBACP Accredited Counsellor with substantive post accreditation experience with over ten years practice in Higher Educational University Student Counselling Services in both England and Scotland.

I also have significant experience of practising within primary care settings as a counsellor within a number of g.p practices in England dealing with a range of issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship issues, bereavement, loss, physical illness, post traumatic stress, gender identity/sexuality, sexual abuse, alcohol/ drug use, redundancy and eating disorders.

I have also worked for a specialist agency for women who have experienced domestic violence and practised independently for Employee Assistance Schemes.

I am offering counselling to individuals from an Integrative Humanistic (Gestalt) Theoretical Perspective. I am able to explore any presenting issues that you may bring and am happy to have an initial consultation to answer any questions you may have. I enjoy creative mediums in my practice.

I have access to a room within Alford town centre which has disabled access and parking.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at the Northern Guild of Psychotherapy in the North of England for four years on a part-time basis and achieved my Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (Gestalt module) in 2002. Although Gestalt was my core model I regard myself as an Integrative Practitioner and am also informed by both Existential and Psychoanalytic Theory. I have practised within an organisation which was Person-Centred in its approach to counselling.

I have completed a Foundation course in Group Dynamics run by the Institute of Group Analysis and have an interest in group processes.

Prior to my professional training as an Accredited Counsellor I qualified as a social worker CQSW in 1990 and practised predominantly within the field of Adult Mental Health in both the community and Hospital settings. This has enabled me to have a good understanding of a range of mental health issues.
