About me and my therapy practice

It may be there is one specific reason you are seeking counselling, or it may be there are several issues you want to work through. Perhaps you are troubled by recent life events, or your mind is occupied by events that happened in your earlier life. You may feel discontent and unhappy and you do not know why. Maybe you feel disconnected from others and relationships may be difficult or troubling. Or perhaps you feel quite lonely, anxious, or depressed. Your experience right now may be because of a bereavement, a relationship breakdown, stress at work, or family difficulties.

Counselling can give you the space and time to explore your current experience in a safe, judgement free, and confidential environment.

As a person-centred counsellor, I respect you as the authority on what it is that is causing you unhappiness or distress. I will listen to what it is you need to bring to the therapeutic relationship with understanding and without judgement. I recognise you as the individual you are and you will always be at the centre of the therapeutic relationship.

As your counsellor, I can give you the time and space to explore your feelings, understand what is going on, and discover the person you wish to be. I will listen to you and hear you without judgement or criticism.

I offer a 30-minute telephone consultation (free of charge) prior to commencing a therapeutic contract where you can discuss your needs and aims from therapy. If you prefer a 30-minute face to face consultation, I offer this for £20.00 (paid in advance of the session). The number of counselling sessions you have will depend very much on you as an individual. We will discuss this at the consultation or the first counselling session and review this on a regular basis. A single session lasts 50 minutes and if you prefer and it works for you, I can offer sessions up to 90 minutes. This is individual to you as the client.
