About me

Maybe something has happened – such as the death of a loved one, or some other event or loss.

Perhaps the current Coronavirus pandemic and the effect it is having on all of our lives is hard for you to cope with right now?

You might be at home on your own, feeling isolated, anxious and alone?

Or at home with others and you’re getting on each other’s nerves?

Or maybe you’re one of the people on the front line (in the NHS, food provision, police force or another essential service) keeping things going for the rest of us?

Coaching and counselling both provide a safe space for you to explore issues, thoughts and feelings that you may be finding it hard to talk about with other people – or, perhaps, admit to yourself.

We will work to your agenda and use our combined life experience and, occasionally, some theoretical models to examine what you think, feel and do, how you interact with others and what it is that want to change.

Face-to-face sessions are currently suspended due to Covid-19 restrictions but I also work online - via video,phone or VoIP, live chat and email.

I also provide online coaching and/or counselling supervision - individually and in groups.

**SPACES AVAILABLE IN MY MONTHLY ONLINE SUPERVISION GROUP FOR PRACTITIONERS WORKING WITH CLIENTS ONLINE**

If you are a therapist who has recently needed to move your clients to working online because of the Coronavirus pandemic but you have either little experience or have never done this before, you might be thinking about seeking some extra help and support.

I am setting up some monthly online supervision groups to support professionals such as yourself during this difficult time.

Thursdays from 14.30-16.00 (UK time)

Maximum 4 members

£30 per person per session
