Availability

At this present time I am only able to offer online or telephone counselling due to Covid 19 restrictions. If you would like to arrange an online or telephone counselling session. Please contact me on 07530726687 and we can discuss how I can help you. If I am unavailable to speak to you it means I am busy with other clients, if you could leave your name and a contact number I will then be able to return your call as soon as I can.  

About me and my therapy practice

Anxious, stressed, angry, depressed, lonely, grieving, maybe your finding that personally or professionally your life is really challenging and difficult? Counselling sessions are a space for you, where you can talk about your feelings and experiences without judgement or fear of upsetting others. Counselling can enable you to find better ways to cope with your challenges and difficult experiences. I am a qualified counsellor with 15 years experience. As well as my private practice, I work as a counsellor in a local hospice and have considerable experience of working with particularly clients bereaved through the death of a child, I also have extensive experience of working with clients bereaved suddenly and traumatically such as accident, suicide and murder. I work with adults, children and young people.  My private counselling room is in the suburbs of Oswestry, Shropshire, within easy walking distance of the town centre (parking is available/close to bus routes). At this moment for your safety I am able to offer you online or telephone counselling, however long term working remotely may become an easier way for you to access counselling if you find it difficult to fit in time to travel with a heavy workload or busy family lifestyle. Also online/telephone counselling means you don’t have to drive to my venue, which may make accessing counselling easier if your anxious about driving or you have a disability which makes it difficult for you to leave your own home.  I am a Registered member of British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Practice description

I believe that I provide my clients with a trusting, supportive, confidential, non-judgmental therapeutic relationship based on authenticity, respect and genuine care for the person they are. I believe that through our work together you can work through and find ways to manage your challenges and explore how best to cope with the things that you’re struggling with and that having an outlet to openly talk about your thoughts and feelings can enable you to look at and find ways of resolving your difficulties.

I have 15 years experience as a counsellor of working with diverse presenting issues such as anxiety depression anger, resentment bereavement, grief, trauma. Clients who are going through relationship difficulties, or challenges finding relationships. Self-esteem, lack of confidence. Work related issues such as redundancy, finding work or difficulties with colleagues/management or or feeling unmotivated.

Whatever is going on for you right now, this is the time to do something about it, you can make a difference and change your life, you don’t have to go through this alone, with help and support you can find a way through this challenging time and things can get better for you. Ring me today on 07530726687 and we can talk about how I can help you.

My first session

I know it can feel scary to have a first session, especially if you've never had therapy before. It can be worrying when we meet anyone for the first time. You may be concerned about knowing where to start or what to talk about in your session and how to say what’s on your mind especially if you’ve never spoken to anyone about this situation before. I understand all these thoughts and feelings might put you off coming to counselling in the first place, but please don’t let what are normal feelings and concerns put you off getting the help that could really make a difference. The first session is about us feeling comfortable to work together and about you feeling that you can trust and feel safe with me. Initially I will talk briefly about the counselling contract and about trust and confidentiality. I do this in order to help you feel safe and help you to understand how therapy works. I will then ask you what has been happening to bring you to therapy, or ask you how you think I might be able to help... Or I’ll ask you what you’d like to talk about today...I will go with you and what you want to talk about or not talk about. There will be no pressure from me to divulge everything in the first session, but if you want to that’s fine too.

If you’re concerned about when is the time to pay for your session, I usually ask for payment at the end of the session, and you can pay by bank transfer, cash or cheque, unfortunately I don’t have a card reading machine. Obviously if you’re having sessions online or by telephone the payment will be either by bank transfer or by sending me a cheque in the post (I am aware that not everyone does or is comfortable with doing online banking). I’m fine to take payment in whichever way is easiest for you.
