About Your Safe Harbour:Counselling & Psychotherapy

Are you aged between 13 and 75? Do you need a safe place to talk to someone about how you feel, what has happened, or how you can change what is happening in your life? Is it hard to talk about with friends and family?

Counselling and psychotherapy at Your Safe Harbour is a safe space to come to have time to reflect on your situation and decide what, if anything, you need to change, and how you might find your way through.

If your problems stem from something that happened a long time ago, or from repeating patterns of behaviour, then psychotherapy at Your Safe Harbour can help.

As a qualified and registered psychotherapist and counsellor, I would be happy to meet with you for an initial session, during which you could see if I am the person who can help you through. There is no obligation and no contract unless you decide to go ahead with the work. You only pay for the one session. Anything you tell me will be kept private, unless someone is in immediate danger, full details of confidentiality can be discussed when we meet.

If you would like to know more, or find out if I’d be the right person for you to work with, then please call me on 07767 498520 to arrange an initial session, for us to meet and discuss your needs. If you are then happy to continue, we will arrange a weekly session lasting 50 minutes. The work will vary in length depending on your issues, lasting anything from 1 session to 2 or 3 years.

Having also worked with young people for many years, I will be happy to work with anyone aged 12 to 18, if they are able to make use of counselling. The work will normally not be long term as, with younger people, my aim is to enable them to manage their lives, without counselling, as soon as possible and young people tend to change more quickly than adults.

For those who are interested, I work integratively and humanistically. I am informed by Existential, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, Person-Centred and Psychoanalytical theories. I am a registered HIP Therapist with UKCP and am a registered member of BACP (MBACP). I have qualifications in both Counselling and Psychotherapy as well as Teaching, Training and Psychology.

I look forward to hearing from you.

My training, work experience and any achievement

For the last 19 years I have had a private practice working with clients from 12 to 80, couples and groups. I also run training courses for businesses, schools, colleges, Head teachers and teachers.

As an associate of the Coventry and Warwickshire Collaborative Solicitors Group, I offer counselling to individuals who are separated or divorcing and work with couples on how they can maintain a good relationship with their children after they no longer live together.

I have worked for Relate with young people affected by separation and divorce.

I have done a lot of work with individuals and couples who are having or considering having infertility treatment, donor eggs/sperm/ both and surrogacy.

I also have worked for both Hertfordshire and Warwickshire as a school counsellor in Secondary schools.

My training included a community based centre where clients ranged from those who had difficulties with everyday life to those who were terminally ill and those living with sick or dying relatives. I also worked for many years in a young peoples’ counselling centre (13 - 25) with all issues.

I am UKCP registered and also a Registered Member of BACP

A Post Graduate Diploma In Psychotherapy and Counselling (2001)
An Advanced Diploma In Psychotherapy and Counselling (2000)
A Certificate in Integrative Counselling In Psychotherapy and Counselling(1998)
A PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate of Education) (Teaching qualification) (1987)
