Confidential Counselling & Psychotherapy in Cambridge

You are here, and that means that you are already stepping into a fertile environment for clarity, psychological healing and change. Engaging in any kind of therapy or change work is an opportunity to be critically reflective in an atmosphere of warmth, compassion and understanding - a trusting safe space where the focus is on you, your dilemma, your distress, whatever you have sought to explore.

Here are some examples of issues I work with as a counsellor in Cambridge:

relationship difficulties - present & historical
(inc romantic, friendship, family, work-related)
anxiety, panic & stress
divorce and separation
bereavement & loss
decision making & life choices
gender and sexuality
self-esteem & issues of confidence
confusion, muddle & stuckness
abuse - present & historical
health & illness

Clients across the generations, from a struggling student to a stressed-out executive have sought to work with their own change process and explore the nature of who they are and how they wish life to be. My work is open to anyone over the age of 18years who is struggling with life at the moment. I can also work with clients via their employer insurance companies: Vitality, Aviva, and AXA. I also work with groups and couples. Click here for more information.

What kind of Counsellor am I?

I am BACP registered and accredited counsellor and psychotherapist. Bringing together my training and research as a therapist, experience as a personal development trainer, and studies in Philosophy, my style of therapy is like a one-to-one personal consultancy, tailored to you and your needs. So there is no one size fits all formula here. This is an opportunity to address, explore and create your uniqueness.

If you feel stuck in life, this work is a way to help you find a way forward, with an aim for you to work towards what really matters in your life, and make no mistake I trust you, your inner resources and the therapeutic process to be the major force in your change process. I will work with you to identify meaning and value in your life, and consider options and choices. I also offer meditation within sessions if this is something of interest to you.

How many sessions will you need?

The number of sessions is entirely in your power and varies depending upon the type of therapy you choose. For counselling & psychotherapy some clients find that 10 sessions are enough to address their concern and find a way through. Others find 20-30 sessions help identify and address more ingrained issues and habits that seem to impede their life somehow. There are other clients that see this kind of therapy as part of their own self-care and personal development and we can find ourselves working together for a year or more.

I am always open to discussion about tailor-made longer sessions if this is something that you are interested in, and fees will be adjusted accordingly.

Hypnotherapy is a short-term solution focussed therapy and you will find that for a specific issue you may be working for 3-6 weeks only.

Whichever you choose and however therapy unfolds for you, it will be reliant upon your commitment to therapy, my commitment to therapy, and ultimately commitment to your life. Therapy can take many twists and turns, and being open to the necessary unfolding nature can make your experience of therapy extremely rewarding.

Hypnotherapy & Creative Meditation

Hypnotherapy is a way to engage in specific stress-related issues and in particular the experience of anxiety. This is an evidence-based approach that has been approved by the British Psychological Society (BPS). There is nothing gimmicky or flimsy about the approach and it has nothing to do with popular 'stage-hypnosis' that you may have seen on the television.

I offer non-trance hypnotherapy which is a form of active relaxation or creative meditation to aid you in your change process. Used in the context of addressing specific stress-related issues, anxiety and fear, this type of active relaxation is about creative visualisation and positive affirmation, is goal specific.

Supervision & Reflective Practice in Cambridge

Supervision is a valuable and intrinsic part of our work as therapists. Like you, I value it highly, even when it feels challenging and uncomfortable. I value a supportive and encouraging relationship with my supervisor so that I can best aid clients through their own change process in a safe and professional manner. As a qualified and experienced supervisor too, I offer clinical supervision to other counsellors and psychotherapists, and also to anyone, in any profession wishing to engage in reflective practice.

Fiction Therapy

I also work with writers to aid character development for their novels and short stories. This work helps with stuckness when writing and aiding the development of plot, story and especially dialogue. Are you stuck with what your character might say that feels more authentic in your writing? Click here for further details

Lecturer in Counselling

I have taught on all levels of training programs and facilitated large groups in personal development workshops and therapeutic group process.

About Me...

Experience - Qualifications - Special Interests

I began my early career in the NHS as a Personal Development Trainer, followed by starting my own company in training and marketing. After a career break to establish my family and undertake academic study and research, I worked as an independent Philosophical Counsellor and Life Coach and this work still underpins my practice as a counsellor and psychotherapist. As a Counsellor I have worked with clients in an NHS GP Medical setting and established a substantial private practice in Shrewsbury before relocating to Cambridge in 2015. I have worked with insurance companies to support clients referred from EAP schemes and Occupational Health departments.

As a counselling lecturer, I have taught counselling/therapy to qualified practitioner and degree level, and have delivered CPD workshops in Philosophy for Therapists and Trainees.

I am also a writer and have published reviews and articles in Self & Society (journal for humanistic psychology), The Journal for Existential Analysis (SEA), the journal for Person-Centered Experiential Psychotherapies (PCEP), and I have recently co-written and co-edited with Manu Bazzano, a collection of essays about philosophy and therapy - Therapy and the Counter-Tradition: The Edge of Philosophy published by Routledge (see sidebar for details).

Special Interests
I have a particular professional interest how Western and Eastern Philosophy can inform therapy, and also how the use of Meditation can aid our change process. I have a deep interest in the body and how our body's hold the memory of hurt, pain and trauma. These bodily memories then inform our interactions with others, our decision making and therefore can have a huge impact upon our lives. My experience informs a deep belief in our ability to transform our suffering, and that if we do, it will have a knock-on effect and aid others to look too, and then our world becomes impacted in a more positive and healthy way.
