About me

I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist and counsellor working in private practice. I have been practising as a counsellor since 1995 as a psychotherapist sunce 1999.

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.

If i saw you individually, 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 also work with couples, again for 50 minute sessions, though not always weekly.

And I run group therapy sessions.

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 masters psychotherapy students.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
