I am a qualified counsellor (BACP registered) holding a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling. I have been providing solution focused brief therapy ( 6 or 12 sessions) to clients in the NHS setting (GP Surgery). I have a significant experience of working with clients in a long-term or an open-ended arrangement. I also work as a bereavement counsellor.
Being an émigré myself, I understand your homesickness and cultural difference. For years I worked in the corporate world and experienced its pressures. I know what the loss of a job feels like or the stress of being pushed to your limits. Most probably I have also shared the pain of other losses in your life. I can help you to become more at peace with yourself and more aware of your life choices.
As a counsellor I have helped people from various walks of life and of different ages. I have assisted clients going through the midlife crisis to find meaning and a sense of purpose. I have made a difference to the lives of young people striving for individuation and uncertain about their personal and career choices. They have left with their self-esteem and autonomy restored, and with a deeper understanding of themselves.
I look forward to working with you too!
When you contact me by email or phone we will arrange an appointment. Come for a one off, with no obligation. Our first session will allow us to get to know each other. There will be room for you to ask questions about me and the counselling process and to share with me what brings you to counselling.
By the end of the session we will probably know if we want to work together.
Once we decide to continue we will discuss your needs, frequency of sessions and terms. We will agree on working together on a weekly basis for an initially specified number of sessions (usually 8 to 12). If the number of sessions turns out to be insufficient, we may decide to continue for longer. The ultimate goal of our work is for you to become your own counsellor and for me to become redundant to you.
