About me and my therapy practice
I am an experienced BACP Accredited Counsellor who offers a safe and confidential space in which to explore anything that is important to you. As a person-centred therapist, I am trained to listen and believe that the relationship between the counsellor and client is of great importance in determining what you get out of the therapy. You can expect to be listened to; accepted; respected and supported and that what you say will be kept confidential.
Any incorporation of holistic therapies into the session with be at the client's choice and discussed with the client to ensure any clear benefits.
I work from home in Ripley, Derbyshire and there is free car parking and access from the main road. I offer a free initial assessment so that you can check out if you feel comfortable in taking this further.
My website includes information on what counselling is, confidentiality, what counsellors do and my counselling approach.
Due to the coronavirus situation, I will be conducting a risk assessment before offering face to face counselling . I also reserve the right to revert to other platforms if I feel that the risk has increased. I, do however offer telephone counselling as an alternative. Please do contact me for updated information about my practice.
My first session
The session will last for 60 minutes and a risk assessment will be carried out for the safety of clients and the counsellor. This may include the use of medical masks, hand sanitiser and social distancing. It may also include requesting a negative lateral flow test beforehand. Pre-arranged appointments only will be offered and anyone exhibiting Covid-19 symptoms or who have been in recent contact with someone testing positive may be turned away.
