WelcomeI believe that everyone has the ability to realise their potential, and having gained over thirty years experience of working in mental health services, organisations for people with disabilities, homelessness, bereavement, grief and loss, health, rape and abuse, parenting and pregnancy issues, I enjoy the challenge of meeting a range of needs and tailoring my service to meet these.
Organisations I have worked with are Cruse Bereavement Care Bristol, Bath and South West, Bristol Crisis Service for Women, Self-Injury Self-Help, SARA (Support After Rape and Abuse), Kindred Spirits, primary and secondary schools in Cardiff and Bristol, HMP Ashfield, Oasis School of Human Relations, Bodycare Clinics, Marie Stopes International, Off The Record, St Peter's Hospice, Social Services, Bristol Community Health, Employee Assistance Programmes, and received referrals from media including 'The Jeremy Kyle Show'.
I work Integratively, adopting a wide range of techniques to meet individual's needs which have been acquired through training and professional experience. These may include art, writing, music, movement and drama; elements of Cognitive Behavioural Techniques, Transactional Analysis, Jungian Archetypes, Existentialism, Gestalt and Psychosynthesis.
These skills have been used to help support adults, couples, parents, children, young people, families, groups and organisations. I have a Masters Degree in Counselling and Supervision, an MSc in Creative Writing for Therapeutic Purposes, a Diploma in Counselling Children and Young People.
As a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy I am passionately committed to their guidelines and ethics.
