MA, Registered MBACP, MAPAI, MIMA (Cert)
I am an experienced integrative, transpersonal and humanistic counsellor. I have trained in various orientations (psychosynthesis, psychodynamic, person-centred, CBT, Gestalt and Human Givens). I believe we are each striving to achieve optimum health and balance, so need to look at the body, feelings and beliefs, as well as the mind. I value the uniqueness and potential of each human being.
I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling, am a Registered Member of BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) and work to their ethical guidelines. I also hold a Diploma in Astrological Psychology and a Certificate in Vocational Astrology; am a Member of APAI (Association for Professional Astrologers International) and work to their ethical guidelines.
Counselling can be short-term and solution-focused, or longer-term, more in-depth psychotherapy. Committing to counselling of one hour a week gives you a regular space and time to focus on YOU. We work together to enable you to reflect, re-evaluate, take stock, and make whatever change you feel is necessary.
Astrology can be a one-off reading, or ongoing. It is helpful to understand the potential and energies symbolised by your birth chart before you can understand how current energies (transits) or the Solar Return affect you. Vocational Astrology is offered as a series of sessions, to which we each contribute, depending upon where your current needs and focus lie.
I have had a varied career, including the roles of administrator, student, parent, school governor, mentor, teacher, adviser and entrepreneur/business owner. I have worked for Cruse Bereavement Care in Swindon and Help Counselling Service in Trowbridge, and currently am in private practice in Marlborough. I also work as a Benefits and Money Adviser.
