ABOUT ME

A fully qualified, accredited and insured Psychotherapist and Counsellor with a Masters Degree in Counselling, I offer face to face, telephone and online therapy and supervision for the caring professions. As a member of the BACP, I work to the Ethical Framework and I am listed on the BACP Directory. I am also an approved Counsellor and Supervisor for Nottingham University.
How I work with clients

I am a Humantistic Psychotherapist and Counsellor.  This means when I work with clents they lead the sessions at their pace with the issues they want to talk about.  I use various ways to help and support clients depending upon their needs and issues, offeing different perspectives and thoughts about their experiences.  My work is Person Centred and I use Brief Solution Focused Therapy and Attachment for short term and long term work.

Experience

Since starting my career I have worked in schools, colleges and local charities counselling children and young people through to adults.  At the BB Group I counsel children and young people from various countries, cultures and religious backgrounds online via their website BeatBullying, FutureYou and MindFull.  I work face to face with clients at Nottingham Counselling Service and extended my skills to train and work as telephone and online counsellor in 2012.

Supervision

I work to the BACP ethical framework and attend monthly supervision to ensure that I work safely and in your best interests to offer you the most effective support possible.

 

I continue to improve my practice and skills by attending relevant training opportunities in line with the BACP register.
