About me

Finding a counsellor and beginning counselling can be a daunting experience and it is my aim to make it as clear and collaborative a process as possible. I offer both time-limited counselling of 6-10sessions and open-ended counselling. Beginning the process of speaking to a professional counsellor, can bring about many beneficial results: increased awareness, self-acceptance, self-worth and identity; recognition and management of psychosomatic symptoms, increased confidence in personal, social and professional relationships or piecing together the mosaic of life shattered by a bereavement or trauma and finding future direction and purpose.

I am an experienced, Accredited Counsellor and Supervisor and have worked with adults and adolescents in Private Practice and in a number of secondary schools. I use an Integrative Counselling approach, which means I tailor the counselling to use methods which are most relevant and suited to you. For example, we might use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to work with depression or anxiety; or Mindfulness techniques to help manage stress; or explore how your past relationships are playing a part in present ones or causing negative patterns in relationships to repeat. Writing, drawing and other creative techniques can also be helpful.

My training incorporated a Christian worldview and I have worked with many people wishing to explore the impact of faith on their current issues or how their problems are impacting their faith.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Supervision

Supervision has been likened to coming in from gardening with hands and nails covered in mud, soaking or scrubbing your hands in warm water, and feeling ready to go back out again! Supervision should add depth, colour and vibrancy to your work, exploring transferential dynamics,  varying approaches and conceptualisations and of course expanding your repertoire of skills.
