About me and my therapy practice

I offer a uniquely tailored counselling service for individuals or couples, face-to-face or online. My online work is conducted via an app called VSee. I can also work with you as an individual or a couple via email, text chat or telephone. Due to current restrictions associated with COVID-19 I am not offering face-to-face meetings at present. Full details can be found on my website www.counselmeonline.co.uk. I charge £50.00 per session and I offer a low-cost, introductory session for £15.00

I have been a counsellor since 1999 and have worked with adults and young people from many different backgrounds and walks of life. My approach to counselling is based on humanistic and existential principles. This means that I start from a position of valuing each person as a unique human being, prioritising their needs and seeking to work with them within the terms of the BACP Ethical Framework for Counselling Professions. I follow the ‘existential’ principle that each person can find meaning from their experience of life and can make conscious and responsible choices to change and improve their lives. I modify how I work with each person to suit their needs, beliefs and preferences, choosing techniques drawn from a range of methods.

My first session

The first session is vital in establishing if and how I can help you.

I allow plenty of opportunities for questions and time for you to consider your choices in beginning therapy.
