For schools and businesses who value the mental health of their employees, I offer confidential counselling and psychotherapy to those whose personal circumstances may be affecting their ability to work effectively. I can provide a range of services, including fixed term work.

Mentoring and coaching services to help individuals realise their potential.

Staff may be facing a transition, new responsibility or loss of confidence. My role will be helping them set goals and plan steps to achieve them. As well as being a counsellor, my experience includes working as a trainer for ‘Working With Others’, which supported staff teams in developing effective communication and collaborative skills, founded on mutual trust.

Support for Staff facing Redundancy

Being made redundant can be a profoundly destabilising experience – in both a threatening and creative way.

Counselling and Psychotherapy for redundancy can provide support at a time when thinking can be difficult. It can provide a safe place to express feelings that cannot easily be shared elsewhere, as well as explore plans and strategies for moving on.
