About me

FREE 30 Minute Telephone Consultation

This gives you, the client, a chance to see if the client/counsellor dynamic works for you. This is important for a strong therapeutic relationship. All conversations and consultations are confidential.

About The Foster Practice - Counselling & Coaching

Modern life brings many challenges – each of us meets these in our own unique way. Occasionally, problems feel insurmountable or a strategy may not be working. We may experience sleep loss, irritability, mood changes such as anger or even feel unwell.

Counselling and coaching are powerful ways to take control. Therapy is tailored and practical to deal with issues such as stress, anxiety and depression.

The work follows ethical guidelines for the following organisations:

  • The National Counselling
  • British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy
  • British Infertility Counselling Association
  • European Mentoring and Coaching Council

I work with a strong set of values based around:

  • Trust
  • Honesty
  • Confidentiality

Training, qualifications & experience

Over the years I have developed and delivered stress management workshops, education and 1-1 support for employees and managers including coaching and mentoring. After a lengthy corporate career, I now focus on talking therapies.

I am passionate about mental health and how it is perceived. We all have mental health, just as we all have physical health. When our mental health is compromised, it can be as debilitating as a physical health issue. When we experience stress, anxiety, depression or any other mental health issue it often impacts our physical health also. Life events such as relationship issues, divorce, work problems all can impact our resilience and ability to cope.

Calling a counsellor or coach can be a daunting prospect. You can book a FREE consultation in order to see how I work. I often use both coaching and counselling with clients where appropriate so they can build on re-usable techniques and develop skills for the challenges they face.

As part of my work I also specialise in the journey that is often labelled 'infertility' or 'fertility'. This can be an incredibly difficult and, at times, distressing experience. We often focus on the practical aspects of clinical intervention whilst trying to manage our own feelings and conflicts. Counselling is a powerful way to take control - particularly so when making difficult and emotional choices.

My work with clients is 'integrated' and 'client-centred'. Integrated counsellors draw on many varied theories and interventions depending on the clients needs and goals. One client may work more creatively and another more cognitively. Client-centred work involves ensuring that the client's needs, goals and own resources sit at the centre of any work done during sessions.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access Unspecified
