I developed a successful career in Human Resources reaching the position of Director of Human Resources for one of the leading universities in the Midlands. It was while working in HR that I developed an interest in counselling and psychotherapy for which I undertook a programme of study and training as a mature student.

Professional Training

I completed a two year programme of part-time study leading to a Master of Science Degree in Change Agent Skills and Strategies at the University of Surrey before completing a four year training in counselling and psychotherapy at the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute in Nottingham. The training was validated by the University of Derby.

Trysull - Relationship Counselling Wolverhampton
Counselling Room - Relationship Counselling Wolverhampton

My practice is based in the village of Trysull WV5 which is situated approximately six miles to the South West of Wolverhampton. I use a room in my house that is dedicated to my work with clients.

Trysull is situated in a rural location so clients will need their own means of transport for getting here. There is space for parking on the drive at the front of the house.

Alternatively, the main railway station and bus depot are located in Wolverhampton. Buses do not travel beyond the adjacent village of Wombourne which is just over two miles away from the house. However, taxis are available either from Wombourne or from the railway station in Wolverhampton.

Initial Consultation

The initial consultation is an opportunity for counsellor and clients to meet each other. This contact is very important as it is the starting point for forming a working relationship.

In particular, it is an opportunity for each of the clients to ‘tell me their story’ about what they perceive is happening in the relationship. The story telling will hopefully enable me to start to develop a mental map of what the problem or problems appear to be and possibilities for how they might be overcome. It will give me the opportunity of witnessing the relationship as it is presented in the counselling room.

The initial consultation should give me sufficient information to be able to give potential clients an informed opinion on the way forward.

Counselling Sessions

I am frequently asked how many sessions will be required for couples counselling. This is rather like asking how long is a piece of string? The required number of sessions will become clear as the counselling develops after the initial consultation.
