    How I can help you

    1. Are you going through a stressful time right now?
    2. Worrying about a decision you need to make…?
    3. Feeling that you’re not moving through life as you would like?
    4. Maybe there are other issues you would like to discuss…

    If so, I may be the right counsellor for you.

    Could Online Counselling be right for you?

    I offer online counselling via instant messaging, email exchange and webcam.  There are certainly advantages if:

    1. You want flexible support to fit around your commitments and needs without having to travel
    2. You’re more confident writing than speaking about your issue [this is where instant messaging and email exchange can be particularly helpful]
    3. ….. With instant messaging and email you also have a record of what you have written and of my responses.

    What to expect

    I work mainly using a Person-Centred approach, and may draw upon Cognitive-Behavioural and Transactional Analysis models where I feel this could be helpful in working with you.

    A quote from the founder of Person-Centred therapy,  Carl Rogers, that I find inspirational: ‘The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change’http://journalpsyche.org/revisiting-carl-rogers-theory-of-personality/

    Working with me you will have the experience of:

    1. A free pre-therapy assessment to help us both decide if counselling with me will be beneficial to you, and to clarify what our focus will be
    2. Being deeply understood (despite the absence of visual cues if communicating by instant messaging or email) – and I will continue to check in with you as to the accuracy of my understanding
    3. Having a safe space to explore what you wish
    4. Looking at options with warmth, affirmation and feedback from me
    5. Being with a trustworthy, consistent and reliable professional
    6. I will attempt to offer you an online presence as fully as if we were in the same room together

    My professional standards:

    I am committed to working in the best interests of my clients and within the principles of the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions - see http://www.bacp.co.uk/ethics/ and the BACP Guidelines for Online Counselling and Psychotherapy 3rd edn. (2009) eds. K. Anthony and S. Goss.

    I have regular and professional supervision of my client work to ensure good practice.

    About me

    I have worked successfully as a counsellor – qualified since 1997 and BACP accredited since 2001 – in different agency settings, a GP Practice and in private practice, enabling clients to work through difficult feelings around a range of issues, including anxiety, depression, loss, recovery from drug and alcohol addiction, and to see their way forward more clearly.

    I am specially trained in online counselling and qualified to diploma level.  This means I have awareness and experience of the issues that may arise in online work, particularly with regard to ensuring your safety, privacy and confidentiality.

    I am open-minded and approachable.  I celebrate the diversity and manifold differences of human beings and you will find me acceptant and non-judgemental of you and what you bring to therapy, and keen to understand all the various facets of you.
