About me and my therapy practice
I am a Person-Centred counsellor, trained at Masters level, with nearly 17 years' experience of working with clients. I have worked successfully with adults, children and young people, with a wide range of presenting difficulties. For me, building a relationship with each person is important, so that potentially difficult and painful subjects can be explored safely, so that change can take place.
I have a particular interest in bereavement, having spent seven years volunteering for Cruse as a bereavement volunteer, and then as a supervisor. I have supervised bereavement volunteers at St. Wilfrid's Hospice, and have counselled bereaved people through a local charity which supports families who have lost a child.
I also specialise in working with children and young people. I trained initially as a teacher, and after qualifying as a counsellor I underwent training with Cruse for working with children and young people. I have worked with children as young as 5 through to 18.
In my private practice, I offer both counselling and supervision; I supervise counsellors in training, and qualified counsellors.
I have worked in a freelance capacity for a number of charities and organisations.
I offer face-to-face counselling, and also online and telephone counselling.
I offer an Introductory session at a reduced fee of £40. This gives you a chance to experience my way of working to see if it's right for you. There is no obligation to continue after this session. If you'd like to continue, we can then arrange further sessions. The therapy can be short or long-term, depending on whichever is right for you. We would have regular reviews to check how the therapy is going to ensure you are getting what you need from it, and to decide when it's time to end.
If you decide to continue, I have a sliding scale of fees (between £50 and £60). I do this as people's financial circumstances vary. You decide the fee within this range which feels manageable for you to pay.
