I believe that a person’s journey is as individual as they are, with that in mind my practice draws on various therapeutic models most suited to the person and the issues that they bring. I offer short and long term counselling and psychotherapy in the Bumpers Farm area of Chippenham. My room is located within a Physiotherapy clinic, which offers parking spaces. I work one to one with adults and have experience of working with a wide range of issues. An initial, no cost, session of 30 mins is offered to help you get a sense of what counselling is like and to explore how we might work together. Subsequent sessions will be of 50 minutes duration.
Training, qualifications & experience
I qualified from the University of Oxford and have been practicing for over ten years. Through my training and subsequent work, I have gained clinical experience within NHS settings, charitable organisations and corporate environments, having worked for a leading provider of Employee Assistance Programs.
I have had a varied career in the mental health field and have worked in various NHS Mental Health settings and latterly worked in secure environments for a number of years, also with the NHS. I provide Critical Incident support to corporate organisations.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and work in accordance with their ethical framework.
