AREAS OF SPECIALISM
I have been working as a Relate Counsellor since 2002 working with Couples, Individuals, Families and Young People. I have an established private practice in Brighouse since 2006 and receive referrals from GPs, Schools, Health Professionals, Sure Start and a significant number of self referrals, in addition to being awarded a license to receive referrals from Relate. I have received additional training on issues such as adult survivors of sexual abuse; mental health and couple counselling; domestic violence, infertility and human sexuality*
*(Specialised Psychosexual Therapy may be recommended)
My work is underpinned by two therapeutic (counselling) models; Psychodynamic and Systemic. My practice is based on needs and best interest of the client at all times. However I may not be able to keep something confidential, should I have reason to believe someone especially a child is at risk of harm. I will consult with you wherever possible, should this be the case.
My previous experience of managing and working with people issues in corporate life, also provides a great deal of experience and understanding of the pressures of work related issues including redundancy, displacement and stress in todays current economic climate.
I am also a qualified trainer and deliver a diverse range of courses privately and for relate on counselling and non counselling related subjects.
