From 22nd September I am back to working online due to the latest Government Guidelines of 'if you can work from home, you should'. I offer appointments on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednedays. Appointments are currently via Zoom (prefered due to confidentiality), Skype, WhatsApp or the telephone. When contacting me, please advise what method of counselling and counselling times suit you best.
About me and my therapy practice
**Update 22 September 2020**
Individual and couple counselling offered. Please refer to the information below and my website www.harmoniouscounselling.com for full details.
In life there can be feelings of anxiety, confusion, isolation, loneliness, stress or a general feeling of being unable to cope. The saying ‘not being able to see the wood for the trees’ comes to mind as at times we can all feel stuck in patterns without knowing how to move forward. Our feelings, thoughts and behaviours then impact on our home and work life effecting all relationships whether this be our most intimate, family, friends or work.
Speaking to a professional in a confidential setting away from day to day life who listens, understands and is trustworthy can help process thoughts and feelings enabling a greater understanding of life patterns, choices and challenges. This can bring peace of mind and understanding which in-turn increases self-esteem and self-confidence.
I am a BACP accredited empathic, down-to-earth, real, insightful and knowledgeable counsellor / psychotherapist. I feel my greatest strength is being able to put people at ease no matter what the issue.
I am integratively trained which, in short, means I incorporate a range of different approaches which I adapt to suit your own needs.
(For counselling students I offer concessions. My training is Clarkson relational. Please do contact me regarding your individual requirements)
I work from a first floor office in a Business Centre off the Portsmouth Road in Ripley.
Access is via a communal door and then straight up a flight of stairs (no lift). There is no reception / waiting room and there is no contact with anyone else so confidentiality is ensured.
My office has an assigned parking space for convenient parking.
My first session
It is always a pleasure to meet new client(s) in an initial sesssion and put a face to a name(s).
Individual counselling:- On arrival I will briefly go through confidentiality and then I lead with a few questions which lets me know a bit about yourself and what brings you to counselling. This is an opportunity for you to ask me any questions and for us to discuss how we would work together moving forward. This initial session is complimentary for individuals.
Couple counselling:- You will have already emailed me back your pre-assessment forms so this initial session is held in the here-and-now looking at what you both want from your relationship and discussing how we will help you get there. This initial session is £30 for couples.
