About me

Individual counselling of adults, couples, young people and children.  NHS trained in counselling, TA trained in psychotherapy. Qualified in Counselling Children & Young People and holder of a diploma in Supervising Integrative Counselling.

I have knowledge of a number of counselling models, which I put to use in a way I hope the client and I find most appropriate for the issue with which we are dealing. This can involve short-term or long-term work.  Whatever we do, it is humanistic and client centred and it may involve Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, Person Centred Approach or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I currently charge £45.00 - £60.00 per 50-minute hour and sometimes see people (usually young or old) in their own home, which involves the addition of travelling expenses.

As well as counselling, I have tutored on a Counselling Diploma Course, am currently running a course to enable qualified counsellors to work with Children and Young People. and supervise counsellors both individually and in groups.

One way or another I have worked with most issues and my business card talks of “Healing and Growth” which I feel covers most of the work I do.  I do believe that counselling is a two-person process so expect the client and myself to work together in an open and transparent way.

Further information

What sort of thing would we talk about?

People come because of:

Relationships * anxiety * pregnancy * abortion * rape * incest * abuse * violence * self-harming * loneliness * family breakdown * eating disorders * substance abuse * sexuality issues* personal identity * powerlessness * trauma * depression * panic * suicidal feelings*

How long will it take?

We meet for 50 minutes at a time.  After the first meeting we’ll agree on how many times to meet – maybe just that once or maybe five or ten times.  We don’t have to stick to what we agree but it’ll give us an idea of how long it might take.  Then we’ll meet at the same time every week.

What would I do?

This is kind of up to you.  You might talk – in fact you probably will talk, most people do, but some take longer than others to get around to what is really troubling them.  You might draw pictures, you might work with clay.  You might arrange sea-shells or you might play with the sand tray.  One way or another we will find a way to explore your pain. This exploration, although it might not be a breeze at the time – is aimed to take away the crippling effect of the pain, so that you can put down the burden you carry and regain the power you have lost.
