Offering Supervision to trained counsellors and trainee counsellors for the past 5 years.

Advanced Humanistic Counselling Diploma
Humanistic counselling incorporates elements of Person Centred approach, Gestalt, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Transactional Analysis (TA) and other modalities.
Diploma in Creative CBT.
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a short-term, goal-oriented psychotherapy treatment that takes a hands-on, practical approach to problem-solving. Its goal is to change patterns of thinking or behavior that are behind people’s difficulties, and so change the way they feel.
Sand Tray Diploma
Sandtray is a form of expressive therapy in the Sand. Instead of drawing a picture on builds up a picture in the sand using miniatures of everyday objects. The therapy is fluid and will reach the parts of us which are buried. Sand is formed by the churning of the tides crashing against the cliffs, exactly like life at times. Telling our story through sand is rich and deep. Sometimes the story in the sand of a client’s past can actually resource the present and can integrate the future with it being fearful.
Offering Humanistic Therapeutic supervision. I work integratively with the supervisees workload aiding the growth of counsellor and client. Supervision provides a container that holds the helping relationship within the therapeutic triad.
Indian Head Massage Therapist.
Recently I have qualified in Indian Head Massage. Indian head massage is a relaxing holistic treatment that uses acupressure massage on the head, face, neck and shoulders. It aims to rebalance your body’s energies.This form of massage focuses on the three higher “chakras” – mind, body and spirit and as such hits your energy epicentre.
It doesn’t seem sufficient to say that a good Indian head massage will relax you. It’s more than this. It can make you feel detached and serene, leave you sighing and wordless, but also alert and clear-headed, alleviating brain-fog and stress.
