About me and my therapy practice

Hello my name is Shelley and I am a qualified adult and child Therapeutic Counsellor. I have a vast amount of experience as a pastoral worker working in schools and a counsellor working for a charity. I am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and offer online sessions via zoom or telephone. These sessions provide a, confidential, supportive environment where clients can feel safe and explore the work through any emotional or life difficulties. I believe by offering online counselling this gives each individual the ability to reach their true potential within the safety of their chosen space.

Practice description

I offer online counselling sessions for both children and adults. 

My counselling suite is a confidential space where clients would not be over heard and can talk openly and safely.

I use either Zoom, which has been approved as safe to use for confidential meetings, or telephone counselling. I believe this gives the client to autonomy to decide where they want their sessions to be held, ensuring their space is both safe and familiar.

Being a single parent myself, I often had to consider childcare when booking appointments, by offering online sessions this allows people the opportunity to receive counselling without having to organise or pay additional costs for childcare.

I also believe online sessions help reach out to those who have social anxiety and struggle to leave their homes or safe places. 

My first session

Our first session will be a getting to know each other session. It is important you feel comfortable with me and we both feel we can work well together.

There will be some information sharing including our contract, confidentiality policy and how we can work well together.
