About me and my therapy practice
Hi I'm Michelle and firstly, I want to say well done in taking the 1st step to seeking help by searching for a counsellor, it's not an easy step to take. Society is moving at such a fast pace that we don't take that time out to get a sense of our feelings, about changes in our lives or come to terms with other issues. We can often feel that the issues and challenges we have are not that big compared to other people's; if they are affecting your ability to live a fulfilled life then it is worth giving yourself space and time to process what is going on for you in your life through counselling.
I am a pluralistic counsellor who will work with you in a variety of ways using our combined skills and knowledge to work through issues and difficulties in your life in a safe, caring and confidential environment. I have extensive experience working with people of all ages, backgrounds, abilities and issues.
I can help with the listed issues but also the psychological effects of losing your sight or hearing, coping with tinnitus and spiritual growth. If you are drawn to my profile then contact me for more information (please check your spam folder for replies) and make best use of the FREE 60-minute initial appointment to see explore what's going on for you and if I'm the right counsellor for you.
During the COVID-19 pandemic I offer either telephone or on-line/video counselling, whichever you are most comfortable with. Although I have no set date to resume face to face counselling currently due to COVID-19 restrictions, I keep this under permanent review. Each counselling session lasts for 60 minutes.
I am happy for you to contact me to ask any questions or discuss concerns that you may have over telephone or video counselling.
My first session
After your initial enquiry, I will send you a counselling agreement to provide you with more information on the service I provide.
If you would like follow this up, I will offer you a FREE 60-minute on-line meeting to ensure that we connect and to discuss your reasons for seeking counselling. This will give you all the information you require to decide whether you want to go ahead with the Counselling Service that I am offering and if so we can then schedule your 1st appointment.
It takes courage to admit that you might need some help but in taking the first step and reaching out to a counsellor, you are already on the road to self-improvement.
If you feel stuck and have decided that the time is right to get moving again, by contacting me we can start to therapeutically explore the possibilities which counselling can offer you.
