About me

I have 20 years experience offering counselling and 10 years experience in clinical supervision. In private practice we will work together to tailor a service that matches your needs, whether this be long or short term counselling.

As a person centred counsellor I believe that we all have within us the answers that are needed and counselling is an exploration of your problems and concerns. Working together, in a safe, warm, non-judgemental environment, we can clarify a way forward that feels comfortable for you.

As a qualified supervisor I have been trained to recognise,respect and work within different modalities of counselling and psychotherapy. I am able to offer one to one or group supervision and have experience in writing training reports for counselling students if required. I am familiar with and able to work to the requirements of a variety of training courses.

I work confidentially and to the BACP Ethical Framework and I have supervision for all of my work.

I have designed and presented some Continual Professional Development (CPD) day courses.

Training, qualifications & experience

I originally trained as a Therapy Radiographer treating cancer patients until I left work to have my three children. Whilst working in radiotherapy I had started to wonder how people coped emotionally with the devastating news of a cancer diagnosis. So I retrained and did a Diploma in Person Centred Counselling and started counselling in 1999. A potentially life threatening illness such as cancer brings forward anxiety, stress, depression and whole life stories, as often happens when life changes dramatically. This didn't only apply to a cancer diagnosis. People have life events and losses that are equally devastating to them. That may be loss of a child, a parent, a partner, a job perhaps through redundancy, confidence and meaning. These losses can cause debilitating anxiety and /or depression with a loss of direction in life. Sometimes there doesn't appear to be a specific reason for how you may be feeling.

I did the Cruse Bereavement training course and later a Diploma in Clinical Supervision and started supervising qualified and trainee counsellors in 2009.
I also attend to my own CPD.
