Work Place Counselling and Employee Assistance Programmes

In conjunction with employers I can provide in-house counselling, life coaching and personal and professional development services, as individuals, groups and workshops more info...

Peer Support for Colleagues

Counselling, life coaching and many other therapies can all be lonely occupations, especially for those working from home or in their own private clinics. With this is mind, I created a support group for therapists to come and spend time with like minded people where we can provide community and networking opportunities. more info....

Couples Therapy

I work with couples to help them resolve issues within their relationship which may be causing distress. Initially I will see each of the couple separately to allow them to openly discuss how they are feeling and express any negative frustration or upset they have. They can also explore what they believe the presenting issues are from their perspective. I then bring the couple together for them to set goals and work towards a resolution of their presenting issues. This is a safe space for the couple to work through their problems. Couples therapy can also be useful during a break up, separation or divorce to encourage clear communication and a more amicable process of a distressing ending.

Group Therapy and Workshops

I run a number of Group therapy sessions, including those for the bereaved and for family and friends of the victims of abuse and trauma.

These are closed groups ensuring that you are able to build a safe relationship with other members of the group and not be disrupted by new members dropping in and out.

I also run assertiveness, confidence and communication workshops. These are open to anyone and are usually run over a period of weeks.

Counselling for Carers

I have been a carer for a large percentage of my life. From the age of 14 I cared for my father and after his death, I looked after my mother until January 2013 when she passed away. It was challenging and isolating and frustrating and confusing, and massively rewarding too, I am passionate about helping support people in this role, and believe that they are a highly underrated section of our society.
