We all face challenges in life from time to time and need some space to think and reflect….It’s often helpful to talk to someone who is independent of your family and friends. As a therapist i strive to build a positive therapeutic relationship so that client’s are able to feel safe and empowered to face any challenges they are currently experiencing. I aim to support a process of working together to facilitate change.
I am an experienced integrative/systemic counsellor. I am accredited with the BACP and use key concepts from person centred, systemic, psychodynamic and CBT approaches. This enables me to think through a range of problems with clients and help them reduce stress and develop coping strategies. I have over 12 years experience working with individual adults, children, young people and their families. This work includes 8 years of work for local authority and NHS child and adolescent mental health services, work with individual adults in counselling services, GP surgeries and an established private practice. I welcome enquiries for 1-1 adult work, children and young people and have some availability for family work.
Additionally i can offer supervision to qualified counsellors. I have completed training for supervision and have supervised other clinicians as part of my job roles within the NHS and the local authority.
Please feel free to give me a call for a telephone conversation to find out if you would like to discuss your needs further and see if you would like to come along for an initial assessment to chat in more detail and find out if we can do some work together.
