I am an experienced counsellor, offering day and evening appointments, in a peaceful, private setting. I work short term and long term with individuals and couples.
I offer a supportive, non judgemental environment to work through issues in a confidential, safe and effective way, to enable new perspective on past and current issues and tools to cope with future life. I work in a Person Centred way which focuses on the counselling relationship, established through support and empathy. I am also trained to teach Mindfulness techniques, which have been shown to relieve anxiety and stress, as well as reduce and prevent depression.
Some people simply need one session to share their grief or difficulty. Some clients benefit from a certain number of sessions, such as six or twelve, and we can agree to work towards completing in that time. Other people feel they need to work in an open-ended way in order not to be rushed and because they do not know how much time they might need.
If you would like to email me or speak to me on the phone to discuss your needs before deciding to come and see me, I would be pleased to hear from you.
There is on site parking and I am about ten minutes walk from a tube station, bus and tram stops.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have an Advanced certificate and a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling. I am an Accredited member of BACP. As well as having worked as a couples counsellor, I also have experience working with individuals, offering short and long term counselling covering a wide range of different issues.
I work in a Person Centred way helping raise confidence and self-esteem. I have been trained to teach Mindfulness, which has been shown to help people learn to manage anxiety and worry and avoid depression. I have also had experience in working with adults who have suffered Childhood Abuse. I have been counselling for many years and now have my own private practice.
I am an accredited member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists), which means that I adhere to their code of ethics and framework for good practice (see www.bacp.co.uk.).
