On this page I’d like to tell you more about my counselling practice. If you are considering therapy, then do call to discuss your needs. I urge an initial one-off session, during which we can meet each other and assess whether we wish to work together. I consider the client relationship to be central to any work and therefore protracted telephone discussions prior to meeting, can muddy this highly important early stage of a relationship.
I am experienced, well qualified, providing a premium, ethically sound service. I am accredited with UKAHPP and registered with the UKCP and the PSA.
Although I have now let my membership of the BACP lapse, I am happy to work with the BACP Ethical Framework, where supervisees for example might want or need that that. I have been very proud to support two of my supervisees in their achievement of receiving accreditation with the BACP.
I am pleased to offer Personal Therapy to Counsellors in Training.
I work with individuals, families and couples. In my family work I would typically work with 2 family members at a time, with my work being focused more on parents with adolescent and teenage children.
I offer sessions over the telephone and also via Video connections such as WhatsApp, FaceTime and Zoom. As a response to the various lock downs in 2020-21, I have broadened my client geography to include EU-based clients.
In my practice I adhere to a Humanistic model of working which means I view people as best served by making their own decisions, I don’t tend to offer any training or advice; however, where clients have an interest in the various theories which might apply, I would be happy to introduce appropriate theories for discussion.
I typically offer sessions across the working week with most sessions being in the morning and early afternoon. Some clients prefer sessions to be at the same time each week; however, I’m happy for session days and times to vary week-on-week.
I am prepared to discuss Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) arrangements with organisations.
