About Counselling

The central principal of my approach is the belief in the self-therapeutic capacity and wisdom of the client. It is a belief in life's nature to grow to fulfil it's potential. Each and every one of us can be motivated to be the best we can be; sometimes however this process can become blocked or distorted by things that have happened to us or by choices we have make in our lives. Difficulties can arise from unresolved experiences in our past, or sometimes from our present circumstances.

I work to create a relationship with you where you feel listened to and accepted and that you experience me as being real, open and genuine. This creates a place of safety for you to open up and explore the problems you have been experiencing. My approach tends to focus on the person rather than the problem.

My continuing professional development over the years has given me an eclectic style, bringing in ideas and approaches from a broad and diverse range of interests. At the moment I'm particularly immersed in working with dreams and I'm beginning to explore the use of myths and folk/fairy tales and how these ancient stories, passed down from generation after generation, can sometimes have a place and a use in the therapeutic journey. I'm also interested in place where we come from, where we live now the land beneath our feet and our connection to it.

Clinical Supervision

The British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) requires all accredited members to have 1.5 hours of clinical supervision each calendar month as well as a commitment to ongoing training through continuing professional development.

Clinical supervision is a collaberative process. My aim as supervisor is to create a space where you feel safe enough to open up and really explore what is happening for you as you sit in relationship with your client. I offer supervision to counsellors working with people 18 years and older.

In our first meeting we will explore your expectations of supervision and work together to create some goals and ideas of how you would like to use the space.

I started by own counselling business in 2002 and was successful in tendering for a number of contacts in an NHS Primary Care setting, this work also involved mentoring newly qualified counsellors. I have experience of working with Supervisees in NHS settings, Private Practice and Bereavement services.

I completed a Certificate in Creative Supervision in July 2013. The course was accredited by the British Psychodrama Association, member organisation of the UKCP.
