Main Therapeutic Model: Person-Centred Approach - qualified in 2004 (Plymouth University) - and BACP accredited since 2007

My Person-Centred training and practice covers the vast range of ups and downs of human experience, dealing with the "whole person" within the context of life's challenges and relationship.

Integrated within practice: key ideas from Transactional Analysis where difficulties stem from relationship with self and others.

Ongoing: training in specialist areas for improved understanding of specific issues towards best-practice and for referral to other supporting services where appropriate. These issues of special focus cover: relationship and couple therapy, school or workplace bullying, domestic abuse and child protection, anxiety, stress, trauma, dissociative disorder and PTSD, depression and bipolar mood disorders, youth challenges and other developmental issues including loss, bereavement and existential difficulties.

Impact of Crime

In particular, I have concern for individuals who are struggling with the impact of criminal behaviour, either of their own doing or that of others. I offer counselling support to young people with a parent or sibling in Prison. Linked to this I also specialise in working with clients who have a loved one gone missing.


Childhood Trauma

I have a background of working with victims of childhood rape and sexual abuse. Also of clients who have had adverse experiences of being in Care, fostered or adopted, and those with a parent who has died or who has left them for other reasons.
