I have been in the counselling/psychotherapy profession for 25 years. As an experienced counsellor and group-analytic psychotherapist, I provide a professional counselling and psychotherapy service for adults, adolescents and couples both in 1:1 work and in groups. I offer supervision to counsellors and psychotherapists and consultation/staff support groups to teams and organisations.
Group Therapy can provide support and powerful insight for those seeking help in understanding the dynamics of relationships. Maybe you are struggling at work with your colleagues or your boss? Maybe there are difficulties in communicating with your partner?
Maybe you have difficulty in making and keeping friendships?
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified and experienced psychodynamic counsellor, group-analytic psychotherapist and supervisor. I have worked in many settings including a Child and Family Mental Health Team for over 10 years, where I specialised in working with parents both individually and in groups. I have set up and run separate Emotional Health and Wellbeing groups for men and women. I have extensive knowledge and experience of working with survivors of child sexual abuse, domestic violence/abuse and parents who have had their children removed into the care system. I have considerable experience of working with families in crisis and adoptive families who are experiencing difficulties.
