I have a private practice near Framlingham for counselling and counsellor supervision. I am an experienced counsellor who has worked in the field of counselling since 1997. Alongside my private practice, I have worked in a GP surgery and in the voluntary sector with the bereavement service, CRUSE, and at Saint Francis Hospice, Havering, where I held the position of Supervisor. I also worked for Family Care Counselling Service in Waltham Abbey for 14 years, so I have a wide range of experience in general counselling.
I see individuals, aged 16 and over, for time-limited and long-term work. My approach to counselling is based on admiration and respect for my clients. My intention is to provide a safe space for us to explore the issues affecting you. Although I will not give you advice, I will support you in discovering what is best for you.
I am an adoption counsellor working with Barnardo's LINK Adoption Services to provide counselling to those affected by adoption, including birth mothers, adopters, or those who have been adopted. I have also undergone further training in Attachment Focused counselling. I am qualified to provide Adoption Support work (through Barnardo’s) if you are an adopter, adoptee or birth parent or are in any way directly affected by adoption.
I offer professional supervision to qualified and trainee counsellors. I also supervise those who are working towards their BACP accreditation.
