I believe positive change with the right support is always possible.

Counselling, CBT & Coaching Services, Leicestershire

My Core Approach

I believe all clients are unique and need to be respected as individuals. Whilst my underpinning theoretical base is Person Centred, I always aim to work in ways that are most effective for the client’s needs. I do not work with a “one size fits all” approach. Research informs us that the crucial element in therapy is the relationship between client and therapist.

About Me

I am a Registered, Senior Accredited Psychotherapist and Counsellor with the BACP. The BACP is the largest approval body of Counsellors and Psychotherapists in the UK. I am also trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Career Guidance and Life Coaching and I am a member of the BACP Coaching Division.

I was Sales and Marketing Manager for a small Market Research company for over 15 years, working with a wide variety of organisations and on many different projects. I believe this helps me to have a greater understanding of the levels of stress experienced in the work-place.

The stresses which people are experiencing today can create problems of anxiety, depression and other mental health issues; exacerbate existing conditions and put a strain upon marriages and relationships.

My varied employment history (public sector, private sector and self-employed) and my own periods of unemployment help me to be empathic to the needs of my clients. Also, my own therapeutic journey and practising the techniques that I use has convinced me that positive change with the right support is always possible.

Further training in Life Coaching, CBT and different models of Counselling and Psychotherapy give me a wide variety of techniques enabling me to work in ways which are best suited to you the client.
