About me

Who I Am

I know first hand that people look for counselling when things in their lives are difficult.  I myself have reached out for help when I have needed it, so I know not only how difficult life can be, but also the help, space and lifeline that counselling can give, both for me and my family.  I don't just talk the talk, I also walk the walk.

What I Offer

My aim is to offer you, or your child, a space where problems can be worked through together.

What to Expect - Adults

A First Meeting

A first appointment will be arranged where we can meet each other, I will explain the type of therapy I offer, answer any questions you might have and then we can begin to explore your reasons for seeking out counselling.

Weekly Sessions

Moving on, we will arrange our next meeting time.

What The Sessions Involve

We will meet in my practice where you will be invited to share you thoughts, feelings, experiences and together we will explore them gently.  Our session will last for 50 minutes.

Everything you bring to the counselling room is treated in the strictest confidence and all records and notes that I may keep are kept anonymous.  Trust is an essential part of the counselling process.

Review

Periodically throughout the course of our sessions, we will review your progress and how you're feeling regarding the counselling.  It is important that we both know and understand the counselling needs and these can and do change over time.

Ending

Our sessions will come to end when you feel it is time to.  We will come to an end mutually and carefully, respecting the work and progress that you have made and with your sense of being able to step into your future.

What to Expect - Children

A First Meeting

A first appointment will be arranged where we can meet each other and go over the reasons for seeking out support for your child.  I will ask you to complete a brief questionnaire which looks into your child's behaviour and will help focus on the areas of difficulty they are experiencing.  I will explain the art therapy that I offer and answer any questions you might have.

Weekly Sessions

Moving on, we will arrange our next meeting time.

What The Sessions Involve

We will meet in my practice which has a comfortable waiting room where you can stay during the session if you wish.  Your child and I will go to the adjoining room where I keep my art materials and our session will begin.  Our session will last for 30 minutes.

Review

Periodically throughout the course of our sessions, we will review your child's progress and how everyone is feeling regarding the counselling.  It is important that we know and understand the counselling needs and these can and do change over time.

Ending

Drawing and Talking sessions normally continue for 12 meetings.  This allows for the full expression of the three stages of therapeutic movement.  This of course can be different for every child and an ending will be planned together and offered carefully when the time is right to.

Important to Know

I am fully PVG checked for working with adults and children and am covered with full public liability insurance.  I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and adhere fully to it's Code of Ethics.
