Counselling Experience

I work with Adults, Children, Young People and Couples.  I also specialise in addictions, eating disorders and disordered eating.   I've worked in a variety of environments, including residential and community drug and alcohol rehabilitation services, charities, private practice, schools and employee assistance programs.  Therapeutically, I have worked to both a time limited solution focussed (6 session) model as well as open ended models where the root cause of difficulties experienced are explored, processed and worked to resolution 

My broad ranging work in the field of mental health confirms that our difficulties impact us in very individual ways.  Whether it's because we're lacking confidence and feeling isolated, we're managing unpleasant, unwanted thoughts and feelings or have complex multi-faceted difficulties.  I will always treat you as a unique individual and will work with you in a way that suits you, in order to help you overcome whatever brings you to counselling

I am an Affiliate Member of National Centre for Eating Disorders, the Head of Psychological Services for a busy mental health charity and Lead Tutor for Introductory to Level 6 Diploma counselling courses

Why Counselling?

The people closest to us can find it hard to be impartial and want to rescue us from our discomfort, often providing us with what we ‘should’ or ‘ought’ to do.  This is the main way in which counselling is different.  We will work collaboratively to facilitate the exploration of the difficulties you are facing.  You will be in control of your journey and we will work at your pace.  I will work through your emotions with you, allowing you the space to feel and process them.  You will not be judged.  My role is to help you expand your awareness and better understand yourself, enabling you to find the best path through your current difficulties
