Counselling takes place in quiet and comfortable offices in the centre of Lancaster, easily accessible and with free parking. Both daytime and evening appointments are available and Saturday morning appointments can also be arranged.
In addition to my work as a person-centred counsellor I also work as a coach, a hypnotherapist and a neuro-linguistic practitioner and I integrate these approaches into my work with the explicit consent of clients and when it is appropriate to do so.
Identifying and working through the beliefs that you have about yourself, beliefs often established in early life and adolescence, can have a profound effect on how you feel about yourself, your life and your relationships today. If you have relationship issues; feel that you might benefit from couples counselling or have issues related to anger management, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, stress or low self-confidence then you might be surprised at just how quickly it can be possible to make the changes that you are looking for.
I work with both individuals and couples and I'm pragmatic about in my approach to my work. When people come to see me they are usually feeling quite stuck. Theyve often tried unsuccessfully a variety of approaches to get some movement in their lives and what they are looking for now is the quickest and most effective way to change the way they feel or behave. I dont think it really matters to them how we achieve this, just so long as we do.
Training, qualifications & experience
I'm a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and work according to the ethical guideline of the association. I'm also a member of the National Register of Hypnotherapists and Psychotherapists. I have an enhanced CRB clearance which may be seen on request.
I'm a well qualified counsellor with a breadth of therapeutic and life experience who has been using therapeutic and coaching approaches for the last thirty years in a variety of professional settings. I'm a graduate teacher and have also practiced as a social worker working with children and families and in psychiatric settings and as a school and youth counsellor.
I have particular experience in working with people experiencing workplace bullying and harrassment, the effects of which I believe are significantly underestimated.
