My aim as a counsellor is to offer a confidential place to explore what is causing difficulty or worry. Within the initial session we would discuss what type of support is being looked for and agree a way forward.
About me. I started my training in 2003 in psychodynamic counselling this type of counselling helps with many issues that someone may have been struggling with for a length of time. I also offer Brief Solution Focused Therapy, which as the title suggests is of a shorter nature and work with very much a focus in mind.
Training, qualifications & experience
My Core training started in 2003 and is in psychodynamic Therapy. This type of therapy can be used for many issues that we find ourselves struggling with. This can be used either as long term therapy or short usually 12 weeks. I have been accredited since 2010.
Since then I have and have worked for various organizations as an affiliate and also in an Employee Assistance Provider setting where Brief Solution Focused model is used.

I am an accredited and registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
I have worked in other organizational settings such as social services with adolescents then to the elderly referred to me by supportive organizations where my oldest client was 90 years old.
