Hello, I am a qualified counsellor practicing since 2007, firstly in Australia and now in Southend-on-Sea.
I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental counselling relationship in which you can explore personal or difficult issues that may be causing you distress.
I am a Registrant member of the National Counselling Society whose register has been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Registers programme.
I have an integrative approach to counselling which incorporates cognitive behaviour therapy and solution focused therapy. I also have strong leanings toward person centred. That said, it is important that my approach works for you, this will be explored before we commence our relationship.
I work with clients short and long term depending on your needs.
My areas of practice are:
- Bereavement and loss
- Burn out
- Stress management
- Transition to retirement
- Employment issues
I offer supervision to practicing counsellors and trainee counsellors. I hold a Certificate of Attainment in Professional Supervision and teaching qualifications; I tutor in counselling skills to Level 4.
I also offer professional supervision and support to other professionals including managers, team leaders and front-line case workers.
Home visits are subject to negotiation.
