I'm an experienced BACP Accredited Counsellor Psychotherapist  I have experience of working within both Private Practice and the NHS.  My clients include adult individuals who wish to work on: depression, low mood, anxiety, stress, low self esteem, lack of confidence, bereavement, and other personal loss, trauma and relationship difficulties.  In addition, I also support those who wish to work on personal development, or create more fulfilment and happiness in their lives.

In addition to my Counselling and Psychotherapy private practice I work as a counsellor and supervisor for a charity based in Windsor, I  have also worked as a Counsellor for the Guys and St Thomas Hospital Trust, a Hospice Counsellor and for a Counselling Agency.

Experience:

My experience includes working with adults with variety of issues and difficulties such as depression, anxiety, low self esteem, loss of confidence, expressing and managing feelings, stress, and adapting to change. I am also experienced in supporting people with bereavement and loss; supporting carers and counselling parents who are caring for children with chronic health difficulties.

I have a particular interest in “Attachment Theory” which helps us understand ourselves, and our behaviours and experiences in relationships. I work to help my client gain self awareness, acceptance and to build self compassion.

In addition to my Counselling and Psychotherapy experience, I have a back ground of cancer and palliative care nursing.

Approach:

I 'm an Integrative Counsellor Psychotherapist.  My theoretical approach is the Clarkson Relational Model which integrates three key schools of counselling psychotherapy theory: Psychodynamic, Humanistic and Transpersonal. I have additional post graduate training in CBT, Attachment Theory, Mindfulness, EMDR and energy psychotherapy/EFT


As an Accredited and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I work within their Ethical Framework for good practice. I am committed to providing counselling and psychotherapy in a  safe, confidential and non judgemental environment.

How counselling and psychotherapy can help
There are many benefits from having the opportunity to talk safely and openly about yourself and what's on your mind or how you feel, and understanding processing and working through difficulties and traumas for some energy psychotherapy can be of specific benefit .

If you are considering counselling and have questions or feel unsure, please feel free to contact me to discuss how counselling could benefit you

Counselling can help people in many ways, and with various issues my experience  includes: Depression, low self esteem, anxiety, stress, anger, relationship problems,  issues relating to being a parent, issues relating to childhood, work problems, spirituality, personal loss and bereavement.

How I work
I work with adults and provide a safe confidential environment, where issues and problems such as anxiety, depression or relationship difficulties can be explored. I believe we all have the potential to develop and become more true to ourselves. Counselling & psychotherapy sessions can help you to access your inner resources, develop new perspectives and insight on the challenges you are facing. Plus, can also provide scope for personal acceptance and change, and help to build on coping strategies and to gain a better sense of control in your life.

You can come for an initial session. This is an opportunity for you to find out if you would like to work with  me, and for me to consider if I can help you.  During this session you can get a feel for what counselling sessions will be like, and  we can discuss confidentiality and the commitment to work together.
