Over the years my practice has developed into having a specialist provision, as a response to clients finding me and asking for specific help. This led me to attend extra training as a Relationship Coach, and in January 2014 I went to America to train as a Matchmaking and Dating Coach.
Additionally I work as an Associate Coach for a brilliant company - Genius Within, where I provide workplace coaching for adults with Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and other neuro-diverse conditions. I also provide coaching for people with ME, and mental health problems, that may co-exist alongside a neuro-diverse condition.
Combining my work as a coach and therapist enables me to work at depth with a person when required, and also effectively move a person forward in their life's...I call this approach Transformational Coaching.
I also provide Clinical Supervision to newly qualified counsellors, as well as experienced counsellors.
I am planning on writing a book, and in 2016 will be looking for people who would like to be interviewed as part of my research about finding love later in life, and how to keep the passion alive in your relationship after 60.
Qualified in 2001 as an Integrative Counsellor, blends different approaches, as I believe that there is not one single therapeutic approach that can meet the needs of every client.I select different approaches and theories to enable a person to move forward in their lives.
In my blend of approaches I incorporate coaching, positive psychology, NLP and help develop strategies which provide a powerful and enhancing catalyst enabling people to move forward, at the right time for them.
Each year as part of my professional development I attend additional training to ensure my skills and practice are up to date. I am currently working towards BACP accreditation.
I have monthly supervision to ensure that my practice is safe and ethical.
Voluntary sector - Counsellor for clients undertaking a Drug Rehabilitation Programme, dealing with Addictions such as Drug misuse, or alcohol misuse.
Voluntary sector - Counsellor for women and men that have experienced domestic violence.
Worked as a counsellor in NHS settings - GP Practices. I have provided counselling to people that require Anger Management, aiming to help them find new ways of managing and understanding why they are using anger in life situations, and start to learn new ways of expressing themselves as well as understanding the underlying causes to their anger.
