About me and my therapy practice
Hello, and welcome to my page. I know when things can get a little too much it can be difficult to discuss some feelings and worries with family and friends. It can be difficult to keep anxiety under control or to keep pretending to the world that all is fine when inside you feel worthless and just not good enough. It can be challenging to navigate the world when it feels like your difference, makes you feel ‘othered.’ Speaking with a counsellor can help you make sense of what is going on for you. I am passionate about what I do, and I provide a supportive, non-judgemental and compassionate space for you to explore whatever you want to bring into the room.
Being a Person-Centred therapist, I am led by you and do short-term work for those people that feel they need to tackle a particular issue. I also work long-term for those that feel they could benefit from a deeper exploration of where they are.
My sessions last for 50 mins, and I usually work weekly. I offer face-to-face in my comfortable garden room or on zoom. Although you are free to finish counselling at any point, an optimal minimum number of sessions would be between 6-12 weeks.
I do not believe we can neatly fit into boxes, and there are various reasons people come to me for counselling. You do not need a specific issue to have sessions with me, sometimes you can just feel a little off. But below are some common issues that counselling can help with.
My first session
I offer a free twenty minute telephone assessment, this is where you can talk with me about what you hope to get from counselling and I can explain how I work and see if we can work together. If after our telephone call you would like to book a session, I charge a reduced fee of £35 for that first session. There is no obligation to continue, but if we feel that we can work together I then charge £50 for each further session.
