Hello, and welcome to my website.
I offer private counselling as a psychotherapeutic counsellor, working in a relational way using an integrative approach and model of therapy. I have been in practice since 2008 having previously worked in London, and I now work from premises in Wickford, Essex.
I also offer counselling supervision to qualified counsellors and those in training, and I have an active list of counselling clients and supervisees.
My integrative counselling diploma, degree and post-graduate level training, alongside on-going continued professional development (CPD), have enabled me to develop a range of knowledge and understanding about the different psychological techniques that may be useful during the counselling process. These include; the use of creative tools and metaphor; considering mindfulness approaches; using processes associated with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution Focussed Brief Therapy (SFBT) and Transactional Analysis (TA).
My training organisations are:
Barnabas Training International, Matrix College of Counselling and Psychotherapy, and Middlesex University:
Dip. Integrative Counselling
BSc (Hons) Integrative Counselling
PG Dip. Supervision of Counselling
Certificate in Couples Counselling
I am an organisational member of United Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), and abide by their code of ethics as a registered Psychotherapeutic Counsellor.
Having worked with clients from a variety of diverse backgrounds over a large number of years, I have gained extensive experience and have accumulated many hours of supervised practice working with different presenting topics during this time. These include: trauma; stress; spirituality; sexual abuse; separation and divorce; self harm; relationship issues; pregnancy and birth; obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD); miscarriage; low self esteem; family issues; eating disorders; depression; bipolar disorder; bereavement; abortion; anxiety.
I work with individuals and with couples, short-term face-to-face and long-term face-to-face (which includes regular reviews).
