sVW Counselling aims to deliver bespoke counselling, to meet individual needs from assessment to an agreed treatment plan. The work encompasses the relationship between the mind and body, understanding physiological effects can be really useful to manage depression, anxiety, over-whelming feelings and even relationship problems.
I have qualified and practising since 2002 and have many years counselling experience to offer.
sVW Counselling has an office base in a convenient, private place, alternatively offers a unique mobile service, a warm, cosy, safe space that can come to you or an agreed place. There are many reasons why people can't access counselling and the mobile option may help with those barriers. If you would like to know more please drop me a line through email or a phone call.
My therapeutic approach is Integrative, combining Relational Therapy,Psychodynamic Theory with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, including Mindfulness. My work is tailored to meet the needs of the individual and usually involves us exploring the problem, what it is and where it came from and moves into solutions; ways to manage overwhelming feelings and thoughts, to start to feel better.

Supervision & training
Supervision is an important part of counselling, I regard clinical supervision as a collaboration between myself and another counsellor or professional.
