About me and my therapy practice
I am an accredited member of BACP, experienced in working with individual adults, students and teenagers. I offer counselling to people seeking help for a variety of reasons, such as depression, anxiety, stress, bereavement, relationship difficulties, loneliness, lack of confidence, low self-esteem, child related issues, sexual identity, work pressures, etc.
I aim to work in a Person Centred way and strive to offer warmth, honesty and empathy. However, my training was integrative and I have undertaken further courses and workshops, which enables me to also offer various different approaches to meet a client's individual needs. I have also been trained to teach Mindfulness, which has been shown to help with anxiety and depression, as well as enhancing well-being.
I believe that everyone has it within them to grow and heal and the Person Centred approach, while not offering a 'quick fix' or instant solution, helps the client find their own way through problems.
It has been shown that talking through difficulties with someone trained to listen in a certain way, enables the client to grow and develop and lead a more satisfying and less troubled life. Sometimes one or two sessions may be enough for a particular client to gain relief. Other people find that six or twelve can aid enlightenment, fulfillment, growth and well-being. There are some clients who find themselves isolated and without a network of support and they might welcome a more long term approach, which I am happy to offer.
I charge £50 per session for individuals but offer a reduced rate of £40 for students and single parents on a low income. Sessions usually last for an hour.
