My first career was in retail banking, both locally and in The City. I became a trainer in both the legal and lending aspects of banking. Later, in conjunction with raising a family, I spent several years running courses on Managing Personal Change / Pre Retirement, and Redundancy / Job Search. This opened up an opportunity to undertake counselling training and I loved it. Whist qualifying I spent several years working with redundancy and career counselling in a variety of sectors.
After qualifying I undertook further training to work with children and became a school counsellor working in a State Secondary School and a Boarding School. I also worked in GP Surgeries. I spent 15 years running and developing a counselling service with a team of 20 counsellors, providing counselling for Hospital staff, patients, and the general public. We also provided workplace mediation and critical incident debriefing.
I now run a private practice in Liphook offering therapy to adults, adolescents and children. I offer supervision to other practicing counsellors. I also work with emergency services personnel, and Employee Assistance Programmes.
I work in an integrative way so I draw on a wide range of training and experience weaving together different aspects of counselling/psychotherapy depending on what you need and what may work best for you at the time. Counselling/psychotherapy is a partnership so our first meeting will help clarify what your needs are and what may work for you.
I use a range of *EMDR, NLP, CBT, TA, and Hypnotherapy along with a wide range of more general counselling training which gives a level of flexibility to meet your needs and find a solution. I will use what fits for you.
(*EMDR - Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing, NLP - Neuro-linguistic Programming, CBT - Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, TA - Transactional Analysis)
