Counselling is a talking therapy where you share your difficulties and feelings, in order to help you to understand what has been happening and to enable change to take place. Meeting in a safe, confidential setting between a professionally qualified counsellor and a client. Sessions usually take place on the same day and at the same time each week but can be less frequent depending upon the issue. I am able to be flexible about appointments time. Counselling is usually a brief therapy that focuses on current specific issues.
Counselling is not advisory – you are a unique individual and therefore the only person in your life who can know what choices and decisions might be right for you – is you!
Psychotherapy offers longer term treatment providing the opportunity to explore feelings, thought processes, ways of seeing and being in the world.
By drawing on insight from past emotional experiences it helps increase emotional awareness and regulation, to resolve deep rooted problems. Gifted therapists have the ability to glide seamlessly between the two ways of working.
I offer individual and group clinical supervision to counsellors/psychotherapists both trained and those currently in training. Additionally I offer supervision for those in related helping professions eg. nurses, doctors, social workers, probation officers, ministers, teachers and pastoral support professionals, who hold a clinical/therapeutic caseload.
I use my unique experience and training to offer a range of Tailor-Made Training programmes in a variety of subject areas. I am able to provide individuals and organisations with the opportunity to delve into the world of self-discovery and professional development in a safe environment.
