I completed my Diploma in Adlerian Counselling in 2012 and I currently have a small private counselling practice in Milton Keynes as well as working as a tutor training counsellors. I also run groups for parents, with a particular interest in families where attachment and trauma are issues.I have worked with children, young people, adults and families for many years in the areas of education, foster care and adoption and prisons. I have experienced and observed how hard it sometimes can be to find the courage to face the more difficult of life’s challenges.
The Adlerian approach to counselling is based on the work of Alfred Adler, the psychologist recognised alongside Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung as one of the founders of psychotherapy. For all of us, our life journey is complex and risky, right from the moment we are born. We strive to find ways to move forwards in life, some of which are more successful than others. At times the courage to continue on this journey temporarily deserts us, and we may seek the therapeutic support to try to understand why we are no longer going in the direction we want.
Since training as a counsellor I have supported people with issues such as depression, anxiety, stress, relationship issues, low self-esteem, childhood trauma and bereavement. I have also counselled parents, helping them to cope with the many issues that families face such as managing difficult behaviour, the impact of divorce or separation and blended families.
