I have worked as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist for over 17 years in a number of different settings including voluntary sector, privately and the NHS.
I offer counselling and psychotherapy to individuals (young people/adults) who may have identified specific personal difficulties and / or want to understand more about themselves in order to allow choice, change and movement in life. I also provide supervision for counsellors and psychotherapists.
I work with a number of issues, ranging from anxiety, depression, OCD, relationship problems and personality disorders. My aim is to work with the person rather than the diagnosis. Please view ‘about me’ page to see my experience and qualifications.
I appreciate that making the initial contact with a therapist can be daunting experience, so please either visit my Q&A page or read my blog posts regarding barriers to counselling. If you feel that I might be able to help you, please get in touch with no obligation by submitting a contact form or by telephoning me.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Analytical Counselling and Psychotherapy
Analytical psychotherapy helps you to connect with feelings and emotions that generally relate to various painful issues that our conscious mind has found too unbearable to integrate, and as a result, has redirected them to our unconscious mind. To begin with, this can feel like one big mass of despair or depression which is difficult to explain. Analytical psychotherapy offers an opportunity to disentangle this mass into tangible pieces of insight. It is these tangible pieces of insight, combined with the release of emotions, that eventually enable the person to understand their own mind. This represents an inner journey of self-discovery and personal meaning, sometimes arduous, but profoundly rewarding and unique in each person.
My Consulting Rooms
I have access to two consulting rooms in Bilston and in Sedgley. Both rooms are warm and quiet, providing an ideal space for therapy, and are easily accessible by public transport.
