About me

How I work -
I work as an integrative relational practitioner. This means that I draw from more than one approach to counselling, believing that this gives me more flexibility in helping clients who may present with a wide range of difficulties. I believe that the quality of the relationship between client and counsellor is the most important pointer to a good outcome. Therefore I pay great attention to establishing and maintaining a safe and trusting working alliance with a client.
I listen carefully to what a client says, wanting to understand both their take on a situation and their experience. I reflect back to the client my understanding of their thoughts and feelings.
From time to time I make connections between their experiences in the present and the past if I think this could be helpful. We may look at the client's thought patterns if they seem to be unhelpful to their coping.
Together we will explore strategies that may help them manage particularly challenging situations or feelings.
All this I hope to do in a respectful,empathic and caring way.
I have 30 years of counselling/psychotherapy and training experience. I work in private practice as a counsellor/psychotherapist and clinical supervisor.
