16 Years Experience

As a Senior Accredited Counsellor my aim is to work with you to help you find the solutions to your problems in the best way for you. I work as a Person-Centred Integrative Counsellor and use all the skills and tools available to me, to help you understand how you feel about any problems or difficulties you are facing. We then work together to help you find ways to overcome these blockages, to achieve what you want and need in order to become the very best that you can be.

Experience
I have been working as a Counsellor since 2001, and achieved the Senior Accredited status with the BACP (the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapists) in 2014. I have had experience of working with CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services) and also within the NHS, (Counselling people of all ages, from 11 years and upwards, helping people overcome their difficulties, and find ways to change to improve their situations, and in some cases helping them to accept that some things are outside of their control and cannot be changed, so our work has been to help them find ways of living with those things.

Training
I have been trained in a wide range of different Counselling approaches and will incorporate elements of many different therapies into our work together, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Attachment Therapy, Emotionally Focussed Therapy, Solution Focussed Therapy, and Mindfulness. I use whatever will work for you. As a Person-Centred Integrative Therapist, I primarily feel that you, as the client, know best what it is that you want, and we will then work together to explore this and find ways to put things into place to achieve this. My goal is your success.

Ongoing sessions
At the end of this first session, if we agree to continue working together, we will agree how often and when we will next have a session. Clients often want to meet with me on a weekly or fortnightly basis, usually at the same time and day each week; however I can offer some flexibility in this to fit in with your schedule band life commitments. Each counselling session will last 50 mins and we will establish in our initial meeting whether you wish to work to a time limited contract (usually 6-12 sessions) or a longer term contract.

How to Access Me
Because of the current situation with Covid-19, I am not seeing clients face-to-face at the present time. However I am experienced in working remotely from clients eg by telephone, using Skype, and Zoom. I offer appointments during early evenings on most weekdays and also Friday mornings.

Specialisms
I have worked with most issues and problems over the years, and feel that working as a Person-Centred Integrative therapist, there are very few areas difficulties which will not respond well. However I have a particular interest in working with the following:-
Grief, Bereavement and Loss
Confidence and self-esteem issues
Low mood and depression
