You may be looking here because you are considering counselling or psychotherapy for yourself or a loved one. All of us at some point have faced difficulties in our emotional lives that have affected our relationships, our work and our general wellbeing. I am offering a helping hand through these times. Embarking on therapy can be extremely rewarding. Each client I work with is an individual with unique issues, and I offer a therapy service that is unique to you and your needs. I can offer different types of therapy to suit each client.
I work with clients who have a range of issues from minor though to complex issues. I can offer help with specific issues such as:
- Anger management
- Self esteem
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorders
- Panic Attacks
- Relationship issues
- Eating disorders
I can offer help with issues created by life experiences, such as abuse, trauma, neglect, bullying, and inadequate parenting.
Also I can offer help with general feelings of confusion, vulnerability, unable to cope, unable to find solutions or answers.
I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist working within Warwickshire and the West Midlands. I have worked in a variety of settings, and have a special interest in addictions and also working with adolescents. My knowledge and experience enables me to work effectively with clients presenting with many different issues; offering comprehensive assessment and treatment plans.
I work with individuals, couples and group settings. I work with both adults and adolescents.
In addition to my private practice, I have worked in an addictions rehabilitation centre, dealing with a wide range of addictions including marijuana, heroin, crack, cocaine, gambling and others. I have also worked in a number of different centres treating clients who are dealing with physical, mental and sexual abuse.
I am currently setting up group therapy with families and friends of people suffering with addictions.
My experience has proved that by offering a safe, confidential and professional environment, clients can work through and overcome their issues. I have witnessed successful outcomes even with the most severe cases of abuse and trauma.
I have studied counselling and psychotherapy up to Masters level, and I am due to embark on a Doctorate programme. I am currently lecturing, part time, at a University on a Counselling and Psychotherapy Degree.
I am a member of the BACP, British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, and adhere to their ethical guidelines. A copy of their guidelines is available for all clients, or can be viewed on their website, www.bacp.co.uk
In compliance with their guidelines I work with professional supervision, to ensure ethical and safe practice.
