I work evenings and at the weekend too. I am a teacher within the Independent sector. I have seventeen weeks school holiday each year and so have lots of flexibility then, during the day and as stated above.
I can see you face-to-face, via 'Zoom' or over the phone. I currently have some availability.
I am also a qualified walking/talking therapist.
About me and my therapy practice
I trained as a person-centred counsellor with 'Mind' and worked for them for two years thereafter, before establishing my own private practice. I have thirty four years teaching experience. I believe that clients are the experts of themselves and within us we have the answers to our problems. I will work alongside you, while you work towards change. I will help you to reflect on what goals are important for you to achieve and together we will explore workable solutions.
I have regular supervision in which I review my work and strive towards giving you as the client the outcomes you desire. I attend regular CPD courses to continue my own professional development.
As a person-centred counsellor, I offer a safe, private space where you can explore whatever you wish to bring to therapy. My role is to listen and help you to gain a greater understanding of self. I will work with you to facilitate growth and change by helping you to reflect on the changes you wish to make. I will help you to work towards finding practical solutions to existential problems. I am committed to helping you to work towards the outcomes you desire.
I work with all common mental health problems and mixed depressive and anxiety disorders. I also offer coaching, to facilitate work towards change and action. I will help you to increase self awareness and find practical strategies to the things that you wish to change.
My counselling room is in my house, but please be assured of privacy. I have plenty of parking. I am situated only a short drive from Epping Central Line station. There are perfect walks for walking/talking therapy just a few minutes away from the house too.
My first session
During our first session we will work together to explore what you want to achieve from therapy and what you would like from me as your counsellor. My rate is £50, but I do offer some low cost sessions too. This is an opportunity to see if we can to work together and to go through our mutually agreed contract.
It is extremely important to me that my clients feel connected and comfortable when working with me.
