I have been involved for over 20 years in employee development, coaching, training and child education. In addition, I am a couples and relationships counsellor with ACCORD, the marriage and relationships counselling service. I adhere to the strict code of ethics laid down by the NAPCP. As a pre-accredited member I regularly attend supervision to ensure that I deliver the highest standards of counselling to my clients.

How I work
I use person centred therapy which is non directive; I will not tell you what to do or make decisions for you. Instead we will work together, in a non-judgemental, supportive atmosphere. I will help you to understand your feelings, behaviours and relationships with others. You can explore the difficulties you are experiencing, whether they are immediate or you would like to generally develop your awareness and capacity to understand yourself more fully.
I work in an integrative way, tailoring your therapy to suit your individual needs and will help empower you to achieve you own agreed goals. I also use some elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), if it is suitable for you. This may involve some homework on your part.
Crucially, as your counsellor, I will enable you to develop your skills and assimilate them into your life when counselling finishes.
