Insurance related work
I have experience of providing therapy to clients referred by solicitors, doctors and insurance companies following traumatic experiences, such as having an accident in the work place and sustaining injuries, and to people who have been involved in motor vehicle collisions. I am familiar with the assessment tools used for measuring the impact of these events and with the NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) approved approaches for working with trauma.
Psychological First Aid
I have experience of using Psychological First Aid approaches delivered quickly after untoward events, for example when an employee being subject to violence at work, such as assaults, or robberies. Psychological First Aid is a means of supporting long term recovery by employing short term interventions soon after the crisis event. Please contact me if you wish to discuss this service.
Employers and employees
There is an increased awareness of the importance of good mental and emotional health for employees and of the benefits for employers in promoting this, in terms of staff retention, morale, productivity and attendance. I accept referrals for counselling from Employee Assistance Programmes and directly from employers in the private, public and voluntary sectors. I have experience of working with people who have employment and work place related difficulties.
Career development and change
I have a background in management and for many years I delivered management supervision. This included working with people on professional and career development, as well as career change for some individuals. I work with clients to identify their strengths, attributes, skills and areas for development. Please contact me if you are interested in working on this aspect of your life.
