Psychotherapy, Counselling and Outdoor Therapy
"The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction, not a destination"
As a person-centred psychotherapist and counsellor with 17 years of counselling experience, I offer a secure, welcoming and confidential space in which you can be understood and valued. Together we will reflect upon and explore your particular challenges with a view to making sense of how things have come to be as they are. I hope to help you become un-stuck and to help you feel able to take part fully in life once again.
I work in a person-centred way with adults with a broad range of experiences including relationship issues, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, phobias, anger management, family issues, addiction(s), separation/divorce, bereavement, eating disorders, abuse, low self-esteem, stress and low self-confidence. I also offer counselling supervision.
I continue to offer Skype/Zoom/Facetime and telephone counselling alongside offering meetings face to face.
I practice from Hayfield in the Peak District National Park.
Additionally I offer outdoor therapy in Hayfield in the High Peak (10 miles from Buxton, 5 miles from Glossop), at the heart of the Peak District / in the foothills of Kinder Scout.
I trained at The Sherwood Institute in Nottingham and hold a Masters research degree in Humanistic Person-Centred Psychotherapy. I have a Post Graduate Certificate in Supervision and I also hold a BA (Hons) in Philosophy. Additionally I hold a Certificate in Ecotherapy.
I have experience working with adults in a variety of settings and have focused experience working with adult carers and women experiencing distress and challenge. Alongside my private work, I have worked for Breast Cancer Care facilitating a support group for women living with secondary breast cancer and I have both lectured and tutored on the University of Salford's Counselling and Psychotherapy BSc and MSc courses.
I have a particular interest in taking therapy outside and have completed extensive training in this area. Outdoor Therapy allows for an alternative means of therapeutic exploration and facilitates a wide spectrum of related insight.
I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist and a member of the BACP and as such adhere to associated codes of ethics.
My Training and Experience
One to one support
Psychotherapy and Counselling
I offer one to one therapy sessions for 50 minutes, usually weekly.
My fees are £60 or £55 for concessions.
A different connection
I offer one to one Outdoor Therapy sessions at a location in Hayfield in High Peak. This space offers formal paths and trails with a woodland aspect that allows for less formal exploration.
My fees are £60 or £55 for concessions per 50 minute session.
Congruent support and support to be congruent
I offer person-centred / humanistic supervision, one to one or in group. I trained with The Sherwood Institute (Nottingham) to 'Teaching Supervisor' level in 2013 and have been practicing as a supervisor for 8 years. I work with both new and established therapists. Additionally I am qualified to take on students in training and can incorporate teaching aspects in any supervision I offer. I also offer Outdoor Supervision.
I use my broad range of counselling and psychotherapy experience in my supervisory practice and work with supervisees in a non-judgemental, holding and mutual way.
My fees are £65 per one hour session.
I welcome your contact by phone or email to decide where and when we might meet to work with your particular challenges in person.
