The Kings Office Suites
52 Queen Street
I provide counselling to individuals, couples, families, and children. I work using various approaches but mainly systemic and transactional analysis. I started my career in counselling in 1982 whilst training as a psychiatric nurse and then once qualified I continued with psychotherapy training both analytical and transactional analysis. I later trained as a relationship counsellor with Relate and have a post-graduate diploma in systemic counselling.
I have spent the last three years studying and working with children with special needs in educational and private settings and have a special interest in the autistic, communication difficulties and the needs of families with neurodiverse children and adults. My current studies are working towards a National Autistic Society Post Graduate Diploma run by Sheffield Hallam University.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
Initial consultation £25 then £40.
If you want to explore, understand and enhance your self-knowledge and relationships in your family, and with others, I would like to take that step with you. I am not an expert and I don't have all the answers but I can provide support, and have a genuine desire to assist with positive change if that is the direction you would like to go in.
Sometimes it might be difficult to travel to an appointment so I am happy to come to your home or make arrangements to see you as close to home as possible.
