Before deciding to re-train as a counsellor, I worked for many years in business and finance. This was both in an employed and self-employed capacity. I believe this gives me an insight into the challenges we face in our working lives, and the stresses this can place on us.
I always had an interest in working with people and therefore chose to work within industries which were people centered, such as: the motor industry, education, social services and with several self employed creative individuals.
I like the creative side of psychotherapy. Whilst I was training I became particularly interested in the Person Centered and Gestalt theoretical models. Initially I worked using these two models and integrated them into my practice. Since completing my diploma over 12 years ago I have completed extensive further training and I now use other models of therapy if they are useful to my work with a particular client. I believe that working together we can find a model that fits you well.
If you think you are interested in working with me please do not hesitate to contact me by phone or email. I look forward to hearing from you.
