I work in Supervision Sessions using the Gestalt and Person Centred models. It is my intention to help support supervisees to explore and reflect on the work with their clients & work through any difficulties. I work with Supervisees in a relational way. I am happy to work with both trainees and qualified therapists. My specialisms are trauma, including all kinds of abuse, depression and anxiety and other forms of Mental Illness including Personality Disorders.

My Background

I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor. Counsellors take an examination to qualify for accreditation by BACP in order to keep high standards of counselling. I abide by the Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy of the (BACP), and the Gestalt Psychotherapy Institute.

I have worked as a counsellor/psychotherapist since 2003 and as a Supervisor since 2008. I work with short-term clients using EMDR for PTSD, trauma and abuse, or CBT and solution focused models for other issues. The aim here is to help clients to learn strategies and solutions for coping with their difficulties. 

I also work with gestalt and the person centred models. These models are more relational working in the "here and now" of what is going on relationally between the client and myself. These models are more suited to longer term work to assist clients to find their way through the difficulties they are experiencing. I work with body, thoughts, feelings & emotions.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.

One small step but this has not caused issues for a previous client in a wheelchair
