My Approach

Person-Centred Therapist, supervisor and writer. Being Person-Centred means valuing autonomy and respecting as equals with no techniques although I have learned a lot from different modalities over the years as part of CPD. I also have a broad experience. I enjoy meeting new clients and encouraging them to see their strong points and intrinsic value. I have an interest in The Three Principles Understanding also which supports the ethos of Person,-Centred work with it's faith in Innate Mental Health and client wisdom from the mind in a quieter state.

About Me

I am 57, have a background in the mental health fields for 32 years. I've been a counsellor and therapist for 22 years and enjoy working in a small private practice. I work from home.

I work with

  • Individuals

Special Interests

Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.

Abuse can take many forms and I support these feelings in a "top down" direction do as to optimally process strong feelings and to keep life on track.
Anxiety is a common response to difficult feelings and situations which I can supported you to explore.
Bereavement has no time schedule, it is unique. I encourage you to mourn in different ways and to feel supported in expressing all your feelings about the person or people you have lost do that you can move through the recent experience and further on.
Depression can be triggered by anxiety and slows you down but this can be a sign to take better care of yourself. Having a reliable counselling and therapy relationship can protect you and help you find your spark again.
