About me and my therapy practice
I have been a Counsellor for the past 18 years and in that time, I have been dedicated to helping people through the Counselling Process to live life with a positive outlook, to develop and grow emotionally and to become the best version of themselves.
I believe that we are all uniquely different and our perspectives, expectations, and needs are also unique. As a Counsellor, I respect these differences and I am open to working with my clients to find a solution to their problem. The Client and Counsellor relationship must be based on open and honest dialogue if the working partnership is to work well.
My aim is to support my clients to gain a different perspective on their personal circumstances. I strongly believe that this can be achieved with empathy, respect, and acceptance of the individual and the presenting problems. I am here to walk beside my clients as a guide to help them to unlock the answers inside.
I attract clients from all over the UK, I also work with international clients
I offer a free 30-minute telephone consultation, my charges start from £50 per 1-hour session, I also offer concession rates to student counsellors.
I recommend a block of 12 sessions, where you will be seeing me once a week, we will review your sessions throughout your time working with me.
What to expect from Counselling? During your Counselling sessions, you will have a safe space to express your feelings. You will be free to express your concerns with me, and by doing so I can help you gain a better understanding of how your thoughts and feelings and the situation is affecting your life.
The Counselling processes will help you to identify ways to find your own solutions to the problem. It can be emotionally liberating to share your worries and fears with another person who acknowledges your thoughts and feelings.
Specialist Areas of my practice:
I work with Drug and Alcohol-related problems, and the effect that this has on the life of the individual experiencing addiction. I also work closely with family members living with a person with an addiction problem.
In addition, I have the knowledge to support people into Detox and Residential Treatment Centres should we agree that this is an option you wish to explore.
I am experienced in working with anxiety, depression, stress, OCD, trauma, childhood trauma and abuse, relationship problems, family problems, Family and Couples mediation, parent estrangement, and Covid related Issues.
