PRESENTLY WORKING ON-LINE :I am an Integrative Psychotherapist and an experienced & well qualified Psycho-Sexual therapist & Trauma work. I take a very relational and compassionate approach. I believe that we are complicated & multi faceted as humans and so take a dynamic & holistic view of the issues we face in relationship. I work longer term in order to allow my clients a space to fully explore their issues where necessary. I enjoy being in active conversations & often use creative approaches to explore dilemmas. My psycho-sexual work covers a wide range of issues of performance to sexuality ,trauma & abuse.
My work with couples takes a similar approach while using Emotional Focused therapy as a backdrop. This puts the attention back on communication & intimacy.
I also have experience of Bereavement Counselling having worked at a local hospice for several years.
I am a UKCP Integrative Psychotherapist with a specific interest and training in the Psycho-Sexual and Relationship field. I am also BACP (Snr) accredited and COSRT accredited. I am highly trained and very experienced with MSc, BA (hons) and PGDip Psycho-Sexual & PGCert Supervision.
Originally a teacher, a mother of adult children & having spent many years working with an Aid agency in Asia, I retrained as a counsellor & then as a psychotherapist therapist to help me meet the needs of the people I was meeting. With the increase of clients coming with relational, sexuality & trauma issues I added to my training by completing 2 year post-grad Psycho-sexual Diploma in order to be better informed for my clients.
Having lectured counselling to degree level for 9 years & run a local counselling agency, I enjoy working with trainee therapists and and am happy to Supervise trainees and Graduates for both couples and singles and am based in Buckinghamshire/Hertfordshire.
I work as a psychotherapist, psycho-sexual counsellor, counselling trainer and clinical supervisor for psychotherapists and counsellors.
Outside of therapy I enjoy photography, the fresh air, coffee with friends , exploring new places & my family.
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.
