Do you feel that you could work best with a Counsellor who does not judge you, offers you respect and a Confidential service?
Do you want your Counsellor to be able to draw on a wealth of experience, which will help you to achieve the necessary changes you need to make, for you to move on and lead a more fulfilling, positive and happy life.
I work from two different offices, one situated in my home town of Kidderminster Worcestershire (this is where I manage my online Counselling service as well as face to face sessions) and the other is based in Wolverhampton. The way I work is quite simple and straight forward, I will view our working relationship with the up-most importance, this is a necessity if you are going to be make any positive changes therefore you need to feel comfortable and confident with me.
Our first session session will be pretty much about us starting to get to know each other, for me to find out a little more about your motivation to contact a Counsellor and for you to decide if you can work with me and feel that I'm best Counsellor suited to help you achieve your goals.
If you decide to work with me we will contract for an initial 6 sessions, these will take place on a weekly basis for maximum benefit to you, the duration of each session is 50 minutes. Each session will be strictly confidential. I operate in a warm empathic manner without making any judgements of you or your circumstances. I am not here to tell you what to do, but to help you discover your inner strength, the best way forward for you and support you in that move forward......
I obtained my Diploma in Humanistic Counselling in 2012 and have either been employed full time in a counselling practice or in private practice ever since. Prior to this I worked for over 10 years within the criminal justice system, working with homeless offenders offering support and guidance to individuals wanting to make positive life style changes. It was whilst working in this field, I gained an interest in criminal psychology and counselling.
On qualifying I was offered a full time Counselling position with the Worcestershire Community Alcohol Team. Within a short period of time I was managing the criminal justice service, liaising with Probation officers and working with their clients who's offences were linked to Alcohol use.
I have worked within the addiction field for the past 13 years and the last two years in private practice working with clients and helping them address many different issues other than addictions, such as Depression, Anxiety, Low Self Esteem, Sexual problems, Work Related issues, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and so on.
For the past year I have been working as an affiliate Counsellor for an Employee Assistance Programme provider, where I have helped many clients address their problems and return to work successfully.
In December 2014 I began working in partnership with an LGBT Network, Wolverhampton. Managing the counselling service and a small team of volunteer counsellors.
My work is regulated by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I work within their ethical framework, I am fully insured.
