I am a BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist and BACP Senior Accredited Supervisor and work integratively using the Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Solution Focused, and Mindfulness approaches. I have worked extensively across the private, public, and university sectors for the past 27 years, offering long and short term therapy. Both face to face and online work have been effective and rewarding. Over recent years my interest in online therapy and it’s development has increased, and I now offer counselling solely online - by telephone or audio, video, instant message, and email.
I have supervised trainee and qualified counsellors and psychotherapists for 25 years. Counselling supervision continues to be offered face to face and online.
Each of us is a unique individual and the complexity of any problems we face is special to ourselves and our circumstances. During counselling we can aim for increased awareness and understanding, recognition of patterns and triggers, development of coping strategies and ways of doing it differently, increased self nurturing, and a general feeling of strength and well being. I will work with you to identify what is important to you and how to achieve your desired aim.
Talking things through can help immensely when we feel vulnerable or anxious and find life problematic....it’s good to feel heard. Counselling can help to unravel your difficulties so that you can see the issues more clearly. You will be able to talk about your life in whatever way feels comfortable to you. The focus will be on what you feel is important, and what you wish to gain from counselling.
As an integrative counsellor I combine theoretical approaches .... Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Solution Focused, Mindfulness .... using methods as they are best suited to each individual, and to the presenting problem.
