I am a professionally trained qualified counsellor and psychotherapist with several years experience offering counselling support to clients with a broad range of issues – In my current role as Lead Therapist on the Mood Disorder Programme at a high profile Treatment Centre I support clients with:
- Eating Disorders
- Self Harm
My private practice is based at the Cowdray Park Estate in Midhurst offering a safe therapeutic environment. There is ample parking, please see my contact page for further details.
I spent three years as a counsellor with Age UK working with the elderly and clients with life changing disabilities as well as a part time position at Connect Counselling in Camberley for two years in general counselling and psychotherapy.
I believe that counselling is not about giving advice or direction it is about empowerment – most if not all of my clients tell me of the powerlessness that they feel in times of emotional pain – powerlessness is defeating, depressing; crushing confidence and self esteem – our ability to make simple decisions is reduced leaving us feeling vulnerable and afraid – the minute we reach out for help that feeling of powerlessness starts to lessen – as we come to trust the helper we begin to feel emotionally stronger, our thinking becomes clearer – we feel empowered.
The process is not instant – it takes a while and is unique to everyone – I offer a safe therapeutic environment where this process can gently unfold. I am trained in a variety of therapeutic approaches and have experience in supporting clients through many of life’s challenges.
