About me

My background is in nursing, I am qualified in Adult and Mental Health Nursing. The majority of my 46 year career has been in many aspects of mental health work. I have been a trained counsellor for 23 years. My approach is integrative, and has involved working with people with a full range of problems which affect people in every day life, as well as working with mental health related issues. I am a supervisor for counsellors and trained nurses and other mental health professions. I am also a trained Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist, practising within the NHS since 2001, and I have gained various CBT qualifications, including Post Graduate Diploma in CBT. I am also a qualified teacher and have been head of programme for nursing and counselling courses. I am an Honorary Tutor in CBT at a local university. I also have extensive experience in forensic mental health issues.
I am a Registered Member of The British Association Of Counselling and Psychotherapy, and an Accredited Member of The British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy.

The counselling work I undertake involves developing a therapeutic relationship with my clients so they can explore their problems in a safe and boundaried space. Counselling allows a person to explore and gain insights into issues in ways that they are sometimes unable to do in the busy whirl of everyday life. A counselling session gives you the time and space to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, and to personally make sense of them without fear of judgement. All my therapeutic work is confidential, and the therapeutic relationship we build should feel safe and help you to move forward. For example, relationship issues are often successfully explored and improved through counselling when the above conditions are in place. CBT is scientifically proven to help with a wide range of issues including anxiety and depression. I am willing to explore which approach will be most helpful to you in a free half hour initial session.
