About Me and My Work

I am a qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and a Graduate Member of the British Psychological Society (BPS).

 

Throughout my working life I have been involved in supporting, enabling and encouraging individuals to grow and change. Prior to training and qualifying as a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, I trained and worked as an Occupational Psychologist in the City.

I offer confidential face-to-face counselling and psychotherapy to help you gain a greater understanding of why you feel the way you do. I am trained to listen and offer a non-judgemental environment where you can talk through your problems and find ways of making choices to improve your quality of life. I practice with a relational approach, which means I try to meet you as much as possible as one human being to another, rather than treat or analyse you. I will work slightly differently with each client – what you will get is me, in relation to you and what you bring, rather than a fixed approach or school of thought.

I work with clients on an individual basis dealing with a wide range of issues. The length of time clients work with me varies according to the needs of each person and includes both longer term psychotherapeutic work as well as short term solution focused counselling. In broad terms, short term counselling will typically be between 6 to 12 sessions whilst working psychotherapeutically at greater depth will take longer.

Issues that I deal with include but are not limited to:

Abuse

Addictions

Anxiety

Bereavement and Loss

Depression

Low Confidence and Self-Esteem

Personal Development

Relationship Issues

Stress

Work-related Issues
