About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor and I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space allowing you to discuss and explore various and sensitive topics that you may be experiencing some difficulty or anxiety with.
I place emphasis on our relationship, building trust and security, enabling us to think and explore present problems and understand the influence of our past to work towards improving perspective, awareness and the future.
Life can be difficult at times and our problems can feel complex and unbearable. We can feel lost, stuck, anxious or confused. They might be problems brought about through life’s experiences; illness, bereavement, relationship breakdown, parenting, life transitions, trauma, career or simply when life feels a struggle.
Talking to a trained professional, who is impartial and can listen and understand without judgement can help.
Counselling can allow you the space to explore and develop a greater understanding of yourself and your relationships. It can contribute considerably to your mental and physical health and your sense of well-being and enables you to make more informed choices giving you a greater sense of control.
My first session
Finding the right Counsellor can be daunting, so initially we will have a 15 minute telephone consultation to assess what I offer is right for you and to ensure we are comfortable working together.
Once we have agreed to proceed, we will meet once weekly at the same time and day for 50 minutes.
Cost per session is £40.00
I offer in person counselling, over the telephone or online.
I work with adults of all ages over a short, medium or long period, determined by yourself.
