I am an accredited Therapeutic Counsellor. I have a beautiful counselling room over-looking a garden, a peaceful place to feel safe in. My day time, evening and Saturday morning sessions include work with individuals and couples. My Accreditation is with the National Counselling Society, and I am a Proficiency Registered member of BACP.
I offer an integrative approach, drawing from my training (Psychodynamic, CBT, Humanistic including TA and Mindfulness) working with clients both privately and in the voluntary sector. I will provide counselling with a warm, non judgemental, professional approach. Confidentiality, ethical framework and principles kept to the high standards as set out by the BACP and NCS. Boundaries adhered to for protection of both client and counsellor.
Counselling will give you an opportunity to explore and discover, working toward your goals and empowerment. To develop healthy coping stategies to deal with what the world might throw at you. I will work with you in an informal way doing an assessment for the first visit to give you chance to discuss the counselling process.
I am also a Supervisor, working towards maintaining and enhancing good practice by Counsellors and practitioners.
