- Solution Focused Brief Therapy
I am a BACP Registered and Accredited Counsellor having been in continuous practice for over 13 years.
IMPORTANT: I will be unavailable for new referrals from 1st March through to 1st May whilst relocating my practice to the YO14 area (Filey, Bridlington, Scarborough).
In addition to counselling, I also provide clinical supervision to both qualified and Degree trainee counsellors.
My ethos in my practice is around self empowering individuals to access their own resources in dealing with whatever may bring them to counselling.
A good deal of my experience has been in working with individuals and couples whose initial coping strategies in dealing with problems, have in time become an 'issue' such as alcohol/substance use dependency or social detachment and isolation.
Prior to entering the counselling profession, my experience in the global commercial sector has given me a good understanding of the complexity and difficulties that can exist in maintaining a healthy work/life balance.
