I am a BACP Accredited counsellor/psychotherapist and supervisor, and a registered SandStory therapist with a wide and diverse experience of working with adults, young people and children both short and long term. I also manage a whole school emotional and therapeutic service and deliver training in counselling theory and practice and other workshops. I work from a purpose-built space in a quiet residential street with parking outside.ÊMy approach attempts to understand your current way of being through considering the unique set of circumstances, experiences, social and cultural context and significant relationships that contribute to how you perceive yourself and others. I believe that a counselling relationship can be helpful, supportive, insightful and cathartic at any stage of life when difficulties or confusion arise that impact on emotional well-being or the ability to bond and connect with others. I offer an empathic, non-judgemental space where you may feel able to enter with me on a journey of exploration and expression that is meaningful and beneficial to you. I am always willing to incorporate creative expression/exploration into the sessions according to the needs or direction that the therapeutic work takes. e.g. sand, art, drama, dreams, sound or play and I have materials that can help facilitate this experience. Working entirely with SandStory as a medium over a course of sessions is also possible.Contracting with parent/guardian or young person will consider the level of competency, limits of confidentiality and safeguarding policy & procedure. Parent Consultations are also offered.
