About me and my therapy practice
*Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, I am currently offering telephone or online counselling at a reduced rate of £30 per session during this time. This can be arranged on an ad hoc basis whilst working from home is being enforced; please contact me for more information. I am unfortunately unable to offer face to face counselling at present. *
I strongly believe we all have the capacity for healing but sometimes this can be really hard; this is where counselling can help you to reconnect with what is most important to you, and to find your own sense of well-being. I offer a safe, warm, non-judgemental, compassionate and confidential space to explore anything that has brought you to therapy, helping you to achieve a greater understanding of self and work towards any personal goals you might have. My approach is humanistic, with a background in Person Centred Therapy and Transactional Analysis. This means that I will tailor my approach as best suited to each individual.
My specialism is working with trauma and all types of abuse, and I have a strong interest in how past can affect our present relationships, using Transactional Analysis. However I am very happy working with a wide range of issues, or you may not really know what you want to work on, just that you need to talk, that is fine too!
I practice from a health clinic in Barnsley, with comfortable waiting area and free car parking. Not far from Barnsley centre, but also just 5 minutes from j37 of the M1, so easily accessible from other areas. Please let me know if you require a downstairs room as this can be arranged.
Each session lasts 50 minutes, I charge £40 per session, but offer £35 for students and low income households.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch with any questions you might have, and to discuss your needs prior to booking an appointment.
I work for Saffron Sheffield Women's Counselling & Therapy Service on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursday mornings. I offer private therapy appointments on Wednesdays (day time) and Thursday evenings.
My first session
I offer a free telephone consultation which lasts around 15-30 minutes before the first session. This is not a therapy appointment, but is to find out more about your needs, to see if we can work together, and to answer any questions you may have.
