Special interest areas
I am a BACP accredited Integrative Counsellor & Psychotherapist offering Counselling & Psychotherapy sessions tailored to suit your needs. I have 18 years post-qualification experience working with a wide variety of clients, on a short and long term basis, including clients experiencing multiple and complex difficulties. I have worked with individuals of all ages, (children, teenagers, adults, families, student counsellors, young adults and older clients), in diverse settings such as School, Counselling Centre, Cancer Centre as well as in Private Practice. I also offer Specialist Mentoring to students in Adult Education..
I use an Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy model which is a combined approach bringing together different elements of specific therapies. Therapy techniques are client-led and holistic. They are tailored to meet individual needs and personal circumstances. Essentially, Integrative Therapists are not only concerned with what works, but why it works – tailoring therapy to their clients and not the client to the therapy. I work collaboratively to give clients autonomy and choice in deciding the pace, content and depth of our sessions. The Initial session gives us a chance to get to know each other and see whether we can work together. It is also a chance for me to find out whether I can offer the help you are looking for. As an accredited member of the BACP, I adhere to BACP’s ethical framework for good practice and my work is supervised by an experienced BACP and UKCP registered Supervisor.
