I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist and counsellor working in private practice. I have been practising as a counsellor for sixteen years and as a psychotherapist for eleven years.
My way of working is Integrative-relational. This means that I draw on a range of different theories to support my work. It also means that I believe that, when you are in counselling, it is the relationship between you and your counsellor that is most important in supporting you when you are distressed, helping you to have insight into yourself and your relationships, and finding new ways to take your life forward. Because of this, it is important to me to create a warm and respectful relationship where you feel safe enough to explore and come to terms with what may be troubling you.
I would normally see you for weekly 50 minute sessions, either for a fixed time (for example for six or twelve weeks) or for longer, more open-ended time if we agree that together.
I am a member of UKCP and of the Metanoia Institute and I abide by both of these bodies Code of Ethics. My work is supervised by a senior practitioner.
In addition to working with clients, I also supervise counsellors and teach counselling to BA students.
