About me and my therapy practice
Due to the Covid-19 virus pandemic and the rules on social distancing I no longer work face to face. I now offer only telephone counselling. this can be quite different to face to face counselling and the first session will be to explore if it is suitable for you.
I have reduced the fee for all sessions to £20 in recognition of the fact that many potential clients are suffering from financial hardship and uncertainty.
I wrote the text below before the world changed and am mindful that a lot of issues may now have been made worse by the crisis we currently find ourselves in.
Life can be challenging at times and I offer a calm, safe space where you can begin to gain clarity about the things that are troubling you, whether these things are happening now or have happened in the past. All of us have been through tough times when few things seem to make sense or we feel a bit lost. you may have been through a defined trauma, you may know exactly what you need help with or maybe you can't put your finger on what is troubling you. occasionally we all need that extra bit of help and deciding to reach for it is a good first step. If this is your first or fifth decision to seek counselling then please check my website which contains more information to help you make a decision.
I work with individual adults in telephone counselling. I am primarily a person-centred therapist which means that I believe and work with the idea that people have an innate ability to heal themselves and that my responsibility is to provide a safe, non-judgemental and compassionate space where you can get to know yourself better, perhaps relate to others better or differently, to find good balance in your life or to find your own 'story'.
Bereavement counselling is one of my specialties.
I run a small independent private practice.
