I am a BA Graduate in Combined Arts, and hold a Post-Graduate Certificate in Education. I hold a Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling,in Hypno-Therapy, and Certificates in substance abuse and bereavement. I trained in Couple Counselling and Psycho-Sexual Therapy with Relate, and hold a Post-Graduate Diploma in this field.
I have worked for Victim Support, helping victims of crime deal with the aftermath of the effects crime causes- be it bodily harm, rape, burglary too name but a few.
I have worked for Relate dealing with all manner of client issues- affairs, relationship breakdown, life-stage pressures - and so on.
I now work in private practice where clients, both individuals and couples, can come with a variety problems - anxiety, stress, depression, parenting, family-of-origin tensions etc
My specialisms seem to be many and varied. I have a great deal of experience in couple work and psycho-sexual therapy. However I also do alot of work on family problems, including sexual abuse, dysfunctional family systems or relationships. I also work a great deal with stress, anxiety and depression.
I am trained in a variety of therapeutic styles of working-person-centred, psycho-dynamic, Systemic, behavioural, and have picked up other input along the way.
This allows me to work in an integrated way, using the most appropriate interventions for each client. One size, in my view, does not necessarily fit all, and I like the flexibility that different approaches allow me.
I lay huge store on developing a good therapeutic relationship with my clients , as I believe this is essential to the benefit of the counselling process. The trust developed here will then allow for helpful challenge to the client's set patterns of thinking, acting and so on, helping the client to make the changes they see for themselves.
I like to work in a robust way, whilst giving the client the support and safety that is needed.
