Mates in Mind

I am a qualified and accredited counsellor with over 20 years of experience in the field of psychological therapies; I divide my time between working as a Senior Lecturer with a University and in Private Practice as a Therapist and Supervisor Services I have worked with adults and children and therefore learned to integrate several theoretical models within my practice. The focus of the therapeutic work is to stay with the client’s experience and they understand what has happened or is happening in their life, I believe that each individual has a wealth of intrinsic abilities which when discovered and acknowledged encourages emotional growth and psychological well-being. IN PLAIN ENGLISH: I work to provide a place for people to be seen, heard and gain greater understanding of their life.
