Professional Development & Supervision
I am committed to my professional development and as such I attend regular clinical supervision to support my client work. I also attend workshops, trainings and conferences on a regular basis. My clinical approach is integrative, which means that I adapt my approach to support the changing needs of each individual.
The relationship between counsellor and client is of paramount importance, for this reason I aim to provide a trusting, supportive relationship in which healing can occur.
Each session lasts for 50 minutes and are usually once a week. My fee is £42 per session.
