About me and my therapy practice
What I offer - Life has its many challenges. If you are struggling, feeling stuck and finding it difficult to move forward in life you are not alone, and counselling may help you. I offer a safe confidential service in a private setting for you to make sense of thoughts, feelings and behaviours that are causing distress. I will not make decisions for you but will support you in working through and understanding them with clarity using the skills, training and experience I have gained.
• Fifty-minute sessions cost £50 each
• Reduced rates for students (£35.00 per session)
• Negotiable fees for long-term clients.
What it might feel like - It is common for people to feel silly or apprehensive about talking about issues that are troubling them. No matter how big or small the dilemma it is never silly to seek help, take care of your needs and look after yourself. To be human means we don’t always get it right in messy complicated lives. I am here to help you make sense of what troubles you so that feelings such as sadness, anger, guilt, embarrassment and shame can be left behind. Insight can be both a painful and wonderful process, however the benefits provide possibilities and choice encouraging positive change and personal growth. This can be empowering and lessen feelings of helplessness in many situations.
Who I am - I completed NCFE Levels 2 and 3 in Counselling skills and went on to obtaining the Foundation Degree Arts in Integrative Counselling at Newman University in Birmingham. I have completed numerous courses in continued professional development (CPD) relevant to my role as a counselling psychotherapist. I have a down to earth, practical compassionate persona with a non-judgemental, genuine and honest attitude. In practice, I adapt different concepts that may be helpful to your individual presenting needs.
