VR Counselling

After twenty years working within Pharmacy (mental health) I embarked on a second career in counselling. I came to believe that sometimes there may be other, possibly better ways of dealing with our problems other than chemically.

I have undergone all my counselling training at Lincoln over a ten year period and have gained much experience over twenty years working with children and adolescents managing an evidence based practice within schools. I have been running a private practice for over twelve years.

I have experience of working as a therapist with children and adults who bring a variety of issues including depression, work-place stress, relationship issues, bereavement and anxiety.

I also offer one off therapy for personal development and clinical supervision.

Training thus far:

Certificate in Counselling Skills
Certificate in Counselling Theory
Advanced Diploma in Counselling
Higher Professional Diploma in Counselling (Graduated 2006)

For your assurance

I adhere to the framework and ethics of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I work using an integrative approach with a psychodynamic core, providing brief or long term intervention for many varying problems including:

Grief/Loss
Work related stress
Relationship problems
Anxiety/depression
Sexual identity
Childhood abuse

I also have Professional Indemnity Insurance and undertake confidential Clinical Supervision for client work. This ensures safe practices of work for both counsellor and client.

Certificates for all the above are available at your request.
