I am an experienced and qualified counsellor. I believe it is very important to feel comfortable working with a counsellor with whom you have a relationship built upon trust, openness and honesty, where you can feel accepted without judgement. I offer an initial free telephone consultation where we can discuss any questions you may have around counselling. This is important so we can identify together how therapy can be useful to you. Additionally, in the first session, I explain how I work (for example confidentiality, cancellations, fees) and what you can expect from me.
It is often easier to talk about our own issues or a relationship problem with a person (Counsellor) who is independent from friends and family. Life’s events can be difficult to deal with at times, including such things as relationship break down, work stress, bereavement, health issues, panic attacks, low mood and dips in confidence or self-esteem. My aim is to offer a safe and supportive environment where you will feel able to freely talk about the issues that brought you to counselling.
I practice as an integrative counsellor, which means that I work with many therapeutic techniques and methods to suit the individuality of my clients. These techniques include CBT, solution focused and mindfulness. I have many years of experience counselling in a variety of settings including NHS and private practice, adult and children’s charities, schools, colleges and the Sexual Assault Referral Centre. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), my counselling work is overseen by this regulatory organisations code of counselling ethics and standards.
I work with adults, couples and young people from the age of 13 years upwards. I am fully insured and have DBS clearance.
I welcome trainee/student counsellors and I can offer concessions while you are undertaking your own counselling training.
Sessions are for 55 minutes and are £45 for adults and £35 for 13-18 year olds.
