A little about me…..
After many years spent working in the NHS, initially for a mental health Trust as a therapist with adolescents and latterly in the field of patient safety for an acute Trust, I have amassed a vast amount of experience and knowledge across the board. With a PGDip in Counselling Psychology plus a MSc in Addictions, on top of a first degree in Psychology, I am proficient in several different counselling approaches. However, my preferred method of working with clients nowadays is as a coach using a solution focused approach and I have utilised this, and motivational enhancement therapy, to provide coaching within the NHS to managers and senior staff wishing to enhance their leadership skills for several years now. A strong focus of this work has been around emotional intelligence which fits in well with my approach. I draw on CBT, systemic therapy and the human factors approach to help my clients to achieve their potential and my many years in the addiction field has been invaluable when working with clients who are ‘stuck’ or who are not yet able to identify their goals.
I will be using this space to share some of my thoughts, tips and useful articles I have found along the way and I hope that you will enjoy and benefit from these.
