About me and my therapy practice
“Sometimes having someone to talk to who isn't involved in your life can help you to see things more clearly”
I am Accredited by British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy
Also a Member of their Specialist Division for Counsellors in Private Practice
You will find me listed on the BACP Certificate of Proficiency
I am a RELATE trained Relationship Counsellor and a School Counsellor
For your reassurance and safety this means that I follow a strict ethical framework for good practice
My working week includes sole School Counsellor in two Primary schools, my own small clinical practice.
My overall experience spans over a twenty year period. During this time I have worked with adults and children. Counselling includes individuals experiencing various levels of mental health disorders including depression, anxiety, bi-polar, autism, acquired brain injury, personality disorder, cancer, pre and post bereavement work, and relationship breakdown.
Counselling is not about giving advice or making judgements about you. I guess you've already had plenty of that if you're looking for a counsellor.
We are all individual with different needs, and I feel the relationship between you and I to be the most important part of your decision to work with me.
Only you can decide what's right for you -
and I'm available for you if you feel the time is right

My first session
Initially we would meet for approximately fifty minutes and talk through what it is you may require from counselling.
This gives you an opportunity to decide if you feel comfortable working with me, which is probably the most important part of a counselling relationship. Would you feel comfortable sharing your deepest thoughts and feelings with me ?
The cost is the same as a session fee and there is no obligation for you to return unless you feel sure this is what you would like to do.
