About Me

I am a Senior accredited qualified counsellor with the British Association for counselling and Psychotherapy with 20years experience. My understanding of the nature and purpose of counselling (and the effectiveness of the counsellor) is to understand and perceive how the client perceives and understands. This deep understanding is probably the most vital evidence which can be given, that I, have the ultimate confidence in the ability of the individual for constructive change and development in the direction for a more fulfilling and satisfying life. I believe my role is to perceive sensitively and as accurately as possible this internal frame of reference of the other. Clearly the most important concept to take into account is the value and respect of the client, by active effort, I as the counsellor can put myself into the clients frame of reference intern, creating a strong working alliance and bond.

I believe that it is the relationship between client and counsellor more than any other factor, which determines the effectiveness of counselling. The relationship is consistently being shown as more significant than theoretical orientation. therefore I feel that an integrative therapeutic framework rather than one specific approach or orientation will be more beneficial to the client. Petruska Clarkson (1995,P6&7) identifies an Integrative Psychotherapeutic Framework: five relationship Modalities

I work with 3 Modalities Psychodynamic, Humanistic, CBT,CAT. These are theories underpinning my work,overall my methods of practice are integrative. However, I will introduce other modalities if this is beneficial to the client's needs. every client is unique:therefore the formula is not fixed

 My aim is to create a safe, non-judgemental,supportive and confidential space where you have the freedom to express and be yourself without fear or anxiety.Gaining greater insight into difficulties you may be having by exploring the past and how it is affecting you in the 'here and now' learning more productive skills for a more productive and satisfying life.

I have worked as a Psychotherapist in different settings for 20yrs this includes providing brief solution focussed for The phobic society , Trained with ACAPS Alcohol Prevention Counselling Sevices Controlled drinking Pia Melody. Desease Model (total abstinence). Counselling for the Blind.Certificate in Addictions, deviance and Relationships.
