About us

Qualifications and Experience
I am a fully qualified counselor and an accredited member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy). I am enjoying running my own private counselling and psychotherapy practice.
What kind of counselling and psychotherapy do I offer?
People often ask me if I specialise in a particular area, for example, relationship problems. My response is that I am a general counsellor/ psychotherapist so am trained to support people with all kinds of problems. Therefore, people come to see me for all sorts of reasons, for example, to do with relationships or work; general life stresses; emotional problems arising from coping with illness, bereavement, family problems, as well as many other issues, including trauma. I also work with a diverse range of clients of differing genders, ages and socio-economic backgrounds.
How I work
I am an integrative counsellor/psychotherapist, which means I use a number of approaches and techniques in my work with clients, because I believe that no one approach is likely to be adequate on its own. However, I have particular interests in client-centred and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) approaches.
Mostly, however, I believe that it is the relationship that my client and I build together that will determine whether therapy is successful or not.
Indeed, there is research evidence to back this up. Therefore, I always encourage people to come and meet me once and see how comfortable they feel, before they commit to a course of therapy with me. Once they have done so, I then suggest committing to six to eight sessions, either weekly or two weekly, with a review at the end of this period, so my client can decide if they are finding therapy useful and whether they want to continue or not.
Other counselling and psychotherapy related work
I have been involved in explicit and non-explicit psychology, counselling and psychotherapy related work for the last twenty years, in a variety of settings. For example, in business management, as a trainer in life and personal development skills. I have developed many training courses, for a variety of companies which has helped people achieve decide and achieve employment and personal goals. It was through this experience that I came to believe passionately in helping individuals achieve their own personal development goals, this and personal life experience led me into the field of counselling.
