ABOUT MYSELF

My training is in Person Centred Counselling, a form of therapy developed by Carl Rogers (1902 – 1987). It is a humanistic, holistic approach which focuses not on the symptom but on the whole person as a unique individual.

I trained at Metanoia Institute in Ealing and graduated with a diploma in Person Centred Counselling.

I am an accredited member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).
I adhere to the “Ethics and Codes of Practice” of BACP.
These outline a responsible, ethical, respectful and caring way of working with clients and details can be found online. For BACP's website click BACP.

I am registered with UKRCP (United Kingdom Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists).
I am also a member of BAPCA (The British Association for the Person Centred Approach) For more information click on BAPCA.

My own therapy has been maintained over a lengthy period and has included a variety of experiences.
I am committed to a programme of CPD (Continuing Professional Development) and attend regularly training on a wide variety of topics which have included so far:

Bereavement
Cults
Self Harm Seminar
Anorexia & Eating Patterns
Drama Therapy
Family Constellations
Working with Older Clients
Existential Psychotherapy
Focusing
Co-dependency
Shame
Attachment Issues

********************

My earlier career in the performing arts followed training at the Rose Bruford College, where I gained a teaching diploma in Speech and Drama and also at the University of Kent where I gained a BA in English.

Now, having undertaken training as a counsellor in the second half of life, I feel I also bring life experience to the counselling relationship.

I find working as a counsellor constantly exciting, invigorating, challenging, demanding, surprising and rewarding.

My fee is currently 50 per session for individual counselling and the session is 50 minutes.
My fee for couples counselling is currently 70 and the session is one hour.
