St Barnabas House
Everyone is unique and an expert on themselves. As an experienced Integrative Counsellor and Therapist I know how important it is to be flexible and adaptable in my approach with respect to that uniqueness and diversity. I provide a warm, confidential space to listen without assumption or judgment.
I have extensive experience in working effectively with Relationship issues both with Individuals and Couples as well as in working with Anxiety, Depression, Anger Management and Stress.
I am also an experienced Trauma Specialist specifically trained in working safely and effectively with people who have suffered from serious or traumatising events or situations in their lives. My training in CBT and EMDR have both contributed to my offering an effective and positive way forward for people who have suffered, and continue to suffer, from such events.
I believe in and abide by the BACP Code of Ethics and in the importance of ensuring we review and check at regular intervals how our work together is progressing.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
While I have significant experience in working with people who have been involved in violent relationships, I do not believe it is safe for either the clients or the counsellor to work with both individuals involved in a violent relationship. While I understand how difficult this might be, I would advise anyone who is feeling in danger to contact either their local Police Domestic Violence Unit, or;
Females suffering abuse, contact 0808 2000 247 Free phone 24 hr National Domestic Violence Helpline; Males suffering abuse, contact 0208 698 9649.

Supervision & training
Clinical Supervision is vital to Ethical and Safe Practice in Counselling, Psychotherapy and in all work with vulnerable people. Clinical Supervision provides a valuable space for reflection on working relationships whether in clinical practice or in the community and for ensuring the safety and well-being of both Clients and Professionals. It also provides a space for creative and systemic exploration of those working relationships and contributes to both personal and professional development.
