Qualifications and Training
Hello, I have been working as a counsellor since May 1993, I have have a variety of different training, culminating in Psychosexual therapy with couples. I have a style which is both relaxed and interactive, I have adopted techniques from many schools of counselling as well as from many writers and teachers in this field. I believe deeply in empowering the individuals to 'do it for themselves' to achieve this I employ motivational techniques, deep empathic listening, reflection and analysis.
As part of the psychosexual therapy I use behavioural and cognitive technique as well as educational material, where needed.
Areas of Specialisation

I have also had many years of experience in working with Adult Survivors of Childhood Abuse.
