I work in Supervision Sessions using the Gestalt and Person Centred models. It is my intention to help support supervisees to explore and reflect on the work with their clients & work through any difficulties. I work with Supervisees in a relational way. I am happy to work with both trainees and qualified therapists. My specialisms are trauma, including all kinds of abuse, depression and anxiety and other forms of Mental Illness including Personality Disorders.
I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor. Counsellors take an examination to qualify for accreditation by BACP in order to keep high standards of counselling. I abide by the Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy of the (BACP), and the Gestalt Psychotherapy Institute.
I have worked as a counsellor/psychotherapist since 2003 and as a Supervisor since 2008. I work with short-term clients using EMDR for PTSD, trauma and abuse, or CBT and solution focused models for other issues. The aim here is to help clients to learn strategies and solutions for coping with their difficulties.
I also work with gestalt and the person centred models. These models are more relational working in the “here and now” of what is going on relationally between the client and myself. These models are more suited to longer term work to assist clients to find their way through the difficulties they are experiencing. I work with body, thoughts, feelings & emotions.
I run a private practice in Kingswinford, Birmingham City Centre, on the Telephone and Online.
I offer daytime, and weekend appointments.
In both locations I work from there is easy parking, good public transport.
I offer both Short Term and Long Term Psychotherapy.
I have a Current DBS Certificate, Fully insured, Committed to Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
Training, qualifications and experience:
Because of the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, my face to face counselling services are closed until further notice.
However, I am able to offer counselling sessions via telephone or online video calling. There are many advantages to this, such as keeping yourself and others safe, but you may find it's more convenient to have your sessions from the comfort of your own home as well as saving time and money.
My services are no longer restricted to a location and you are welcome to contact me if you need support regardless of where you live. Call now on 07843 813 537 to book your first session or if you would just like a friendly chat about your issues and how I can help.
