Types of therapy I offer
Engaging in counselling provides valuable ‘time-out’ away from other responsibilities, where we focus on you and prioritise your needs. I work with respect, openness and compassion, to support you with whatever issues you wish to bring.
You may be clear as to what has brought you to counselling, or you may just have the sense that your life is not as it should be, and you would like some help in re-discovering your sense of balance and wellbeing.
I believe that within a supportive therapeutic relationship clients can experience greater peace, clarity and healing. Our work together can facilitate a greater sense of your choices and where you might wish to make changes.
As an integrative counsellor, I draw on a range of theories and techniques, utilising what best meets your needs at any given time. Our work together will be collaborative and always at your pace.
Whether we work for a shorter period of 6-18 sessions, or a longer or time-limited period, we will regularly review our work together to ascertain what is best for you.
Training, qualifications and experience
I have a BACP-accredited Professional Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling from the Mary Ward Centre, London (awarded by CPCAB, the Counselling & Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body).
I previously worked for over 20 years as a family lawyer, where I had the privilege to work with clients from many walks of life (individuals, couples, beneficiaries and trustees), experiencing complex relationship disputes. I now offer counselling support for lawyers.
Having a keen sense of the importance of community, I volunteer as a counsellor in a large mental health charity.
I have an interest in childhood trauma and attachment styles and in delivering training and facilitating group therapy.
I also regularly attend CPD events and professional supervision.
