I am an integrative therapist, meaning that I have trained in several counselling models and, when working with a client, I integrate concepts from the different models so my client and I can work together effectively. The main models are psychodynamic, analytical, TA, brief therapy, solution-focussed therapy, Human Givens and the transpersonal.
I hold Senior Accreditation with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and work to their ethical guidelines.
I started training as a counsellor while I was a student of modern languages at Leeds University in northern England. I then spent many years counselling in voluntary organisations such as the Samaritans and Relate before considering I was experienced enough to work as a therapeutic counsellor. I now have a private practice in Wiltshire. In addition, I have always had a strong interest in workplace counselling and frequently work with organisations.
In addition, I have undertaken further trainings in clinical supervision and have extensive experience in this area.
