About me

I am an integrative counsellor with extensive experience of working in mental health and well being.  I work with people in a place of warmth and honesty over issues such as confidence, direction in life, career or just feelings of being a valuable human being. I am aware that some people wonder what to do after CBT to understand their thought and feelings and to make positive changes. 

People come for counselling for all sorts of reasons.  I believe that listening in a welcoming and confidential setting is central to the therapeutic relationship - the relationship between client and counsellor.  Here it all happens. I am happy to use creative ideas to help clients express their anger in a safe way where they may have felt blocked.  As a Christian I am happy to create a safe place for both Christian and non Christian clients.

I work on a short term model which can be extended by mutual agreement. I contract clients to come for 6 sessions initially so they know they have committed time and resources to start with and then it can be extended.

As well as being grounded in person centred and creative counselling I also use compassion focused therapy both Christian and Humanistic to help people find different ways of looking at daily stress.  I believe passionately that clients can grow by being listened to in a warm safe environment getting the support they need when they want to make positive changes in their lives.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an Accredited BACP counsellor with experience working in a mental health setting as well as with a wider client group. I am happy to work with clients on antidepressants and can tailor 6 session of goal based therapy. This can be extended as the client feels they want the therapy to extend. I am aware clients want to be flexible and do not want to commit to long term therapy without having a choice.

I have a diploma in counselling with distinction and post graduate qualifications in health psychology and psychology. I have recently gained a CPCAB certficate in Understanding Substance Misuse.  I am an Accredited Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
