Training, qualifications & experience
Our values are drawn from the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) ethical framework. These include working with integrity, honesty and courage. We hold confidentiality as central to our work
Our key theoretical model is drawn from humanistic theory where we believe that each person has the ability to take responsibility for themselves and to change and grow towards their own potential.
We also draw on other theories and theorists and in supervision consider the work from a psycho dynamic perspective.

Supervision like counselling deepens as the relationship is developed.
I offer an ethical and structured opportunity to explore your client work and understand yourself as the counsellor.
As our relationship grows, I hope you would experience yourself as loving supervision, feeling safe and supported, and excited by the therapeutic process that you are offering your clients.
We hope that everyone that would like to have counselling will be able to access it.

We ask that you pay for cancelled sessions if you give us less than 3 days’ notice.
We would see you on the same day and time each week, the session may be 50 minutes or for one hour.
We offer 6 sessions to begin with and then work with you to have more sessions if that feels helpful to you.
We work from person-centred theory which means we try to understand you, your life and the world from your point of view - which in turn helps you to understand yourself better and helps you to find your way forward.
