Counselling room to hire
I have my own counselling room which I hire out to other therapists when I'm not using it. It's a well furnished, comfortable & well-equipped room. Very competitive rates for half-day or full day hire. Staffed reception area and waiting room. Please email or contact me for more information or to discuss. You can see more details here.
How mindfulness helps
Mindfulness is concerned with staying in the present moment. It involves elements of meditation, of being able to focus on the here and now, and of paying attention to both our thoughts and our feelings.
Recent research indicates that with as little as 20 minutes practice per day the brain actually changes. The part of the brain which sends messages of anxiety actually slows down and the part which sends messages of calm becomes more active.
If you'd be interested in learning more and maybe practicing some mindfulness then please get in touch and we discuss your needs.
Forthcoming CPD Courses - for Counsellors, Psychotherapists & other support workers
I work with a colleague delivering specialist training in working with adult survivors of childhood abuse and we deliver the following courses. We are collectively known as Inspire CPD for Therapists.
Please visit our new InspireCPD website which has full listing of all our forthcoming CPD courses
The courses are suitable for therapists (qualified or trainee), or those who work one to one, with survivors of abuse.
Numbers are restricted to 16-20 delegates to allow for interaction and questions. (It varies slightly depending on the style & nature of the course.)
I have a real passion for working with people and helping them to develop both personally and professionally. I have many years experience working with individuals and within group settings. I have worked as a trainer, careers adviser, weight management consultant and legal advisor. All of these experiences have brought me into contact with a wide and diverse range of people and have contributed to my learning and growing, both as a person and therapist.
I have delivered training, workshops and personal development to individuals and groups across a number of different organisations and in a variety of contexts. I currently train volunteers and other professionals around trauma and sexual abuse as well as in self-care and vicarious trauma. I strongly believe that anyone who supports others needs support themselves and needs to consider their own needs for support and have a self-care plan.
I can offer CPD to organisations on a variety of topics.
