I have been working as a Counsellor, Psychotherapist, Hypnotherapist and Supervisor since 1988. I can offer you personal support, within a confidential relationship to address the things that are concerning you or that you want to change in your life.
I am fully insured and have regular supervision for my work, according to professional requirements.
Please feel free to ring me up with any questions or queries you might have before deciding to book a session.
I treat the first session as a one-off whilst we get to know one another and decide if we are comfortable working together. Providing we are, I then usually suggest a further 5 appointments at weekly or fortnightly intervals and then a review to see where we are in relation to what you want when you first come. There is a £5 per session reduction for 6 sessions paid in advance. None of this is set in stone. If you decide after 2-3 sessions, that is enough, or it's not what you want, that's fine too.
Training, qualifications & experience
I completed my Advanced Certificate in Counselling and Personal Development at Durham University in 1992, becoming an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy [BACP] in 1998.
I also spent 19 years training in the methods and philosophy of Process Oriented Psychology, a post Jungian psychotherapeutic model, becoming a trustee of the Research Society of Process Oriented Psychology UK from 2006-2010.
In 2008, I qualified in Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing [EMDR], becoming an accredited EMDR practitioner with EMDR UK & Ireland in 2009.
