- About My Work
- My clients have told me the work is enjoyable as well as challenging. I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor with a specialist interest in anxiety, relationships/couples and addiction issues. I have a safe supportive practice and work with BACP guidelines on ethical practice and supervision. You will find our person centred work is focused on your needs and creating an environment that supports your efforts. My work is supported by my training in Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
- My Story
As I am a little more than 50, I have found that I can draw on considerable personal experience of the more difficult issues in life. This together with working within the Buddhist understandings of life, have given me an acceptance of the wide range of ways people try to make their lives a little better for themselves.
I have both trained in and dealt with different aspects of addiction as a family member and I have interests in eating disorders and OCD.
I came to the UK from South Africa in 1968 and I have done lots of different work, some social work, mainly secretarial, but also some technical writing, I spent 10 years living in the wilds of Yorkshire, above the snow line and I have a real appreciation of what nature contributes to living and what sustainability means, when you have very little.
