All of us have difficult periods in our lives. These can arise from major life events such as bereavement, relationship difficulties, loss of employment, illness. Sometimes it can be a general feeling of being on the wrong path through life. Often, friends or relatives can be a great help in such circumstances. But sometimes it can be helpful to talk with a therapist or counsellor who can bring a fresh perspective to whatever you are going through. I see my role as being there solely to support YOU in whatever direction you are hoping to take. I don't have a fixed agenda, and, unlike people close to you, I won't tell you what I think would be 'good for you'. I see it as more of a collaboration between the two of us to find what works in your individual circumstances.
I am an experienced counsellor and qualified Embodied-Relational Therapy practitioner based in Sheffield. I have worked as a therapist and counsellor in private practice for over 20 years, working with individuals and couples. My belief is that I can act as a catalyst to help people to find their own creative solutions and move on with their lives. I work with individuals, couples and groups. I have been a coordinator for a national telephone helpline, and have been involved in training counselling students in a number of settings, both academic and practical. I offer supervision to counsellors and others who employ counselling and relational skills in their practice, as well as to students in training. More about counselling & psychotherapy
In addition to offering counselling & psychotherapy sessions, I also teach meditation at individual sessions and in workshops. Meditation is a way of getting in touch with who you really are. It is not just a relaxation technique, although being at ease with your core being certainly makes life easier. Although meditation is a spiritual practice, you do not need to sign up to any religion or belief system. It can be incorporated into your religious belief, or can be completely non-religious.
