About me

With 10 years counselling and psychotherapy experience working with children and adults, couples and families, I run a professional therapy practice providing skilled help with all kinds of personal and emotional issues, specialising in stress and anxiety and child/adolescent mental health.

I am a B.A.C.P. accredited counsellor/psychotherapist, and qualified counselling supervisor abiding by the British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists' Ethical Framework for Good Practice and Professional Conduct Procedures.

I offer conversational and creative therapies using an integrative approach and drawing on a range of techniques to the suit the individual needs of the client(s). In counselling couples, I offer brief therapy - a focused six to eight session intervention with the specific aim of interrupting and redirecting unhelpful patterns of communication in couple relationships.

Counselling helps. It's made me feel more comfortable handling my issues. I've learned loads of tips to help me with my worries. I've improved loads and loads and loads!
H, (aged 12), 2015

I found the space created in supervision allowed me to process my professional practice through constructive, containing and thought-provoking discussion with the supervisor.
C, 2014

You have helped me massively, both with being a more confident parent and also with recognising my own feelings and emotions and then being able to better deal with them. I am now a lot more questioning when I am feeling certain things - anger, embarrassment/shame, anxiety - and am able to cope with these much better all because of your help. This is all reflecting in how I am as a parent, wife and person! So, a very big "thank you".
D, 2015

I really feel that your help has made all the difference and life feels so much more manageable again. Thank you.
W, 2015

You have guided me, understood me and helped me. Thank you.

Supervision & training

I offer supervision using the Cyclical model.  This framework provides a clear and accessible structure including establishing a contract, focusing on issues to be explored, and creating a space in which reflection, exploration, recognition, insight and understanding can all occur.  Ideas, musings and possibilities thus discerned are then integrated and sensitively applied during the bridge before reviewing the process to ensure the quality of the supervisory relationship and effectiveness of the work done in supervision.
