About Me

I qualified as a humanistic counsellor combining person-centred, transactional analysis and gestalt approaches. I have integrated existential, psychoanalytic and solution focused theory into my practice through continuous learning.

I believe that we all can make a positive difference to the world, feel happy with ourselves and be personally fulfilled. Yet, there are times when life may become more of a challenge, we may lose our way and become unmotivated, feel isolated and sad.

As a client you will experience me as someone who is supportive, and although respecting that you will ultimately find your own solutions, will offer new perspectives and any knowledge that may be useful.

Supervision

I am a qualified supervisor and have been supervising individuals and groups since 2011. Within my role as supervisor I recognise that the quality of the relationship is fundamental to how supervisees and I will build trust and create a space in which we feel secure enough to be authentic, collaborative and free to communicate the processes that will support positive client outcomes. I respect supervisees’ personal and professional experience that they bring to sessions. I have considerable experience of working with student counsellors and offer comprehensive support during training.
In supervision I combine a number of theoretical models which include: Brigid Proctor’s Clinical Model, Hawkins & Shohet’s Seven-Eyed Process Model and Harris and Brockbank’s Integrative Approach.
