About me and my therapy practice
You may be thinking about counselling because you are feeling distressed about a life event or something in the past or present is really troubling you.
Maybe your feelings are too much or are difficult to cope with. You may want support with and more understanding of anger or fear, anxiety or feeling low, or you may know something is not right but not exactly what.
Counselling can help in many ways with things like building self-esteem and increasing self-awareness to empower you to make different choices in life.
Asking for help and accessing support can feel very difficult and sometimes overwhelming and we will work to help alleviate this. As a Person-Centred therapist I offer an environment that is warm, confidential and free from judgement. I will work to help you feel safe and to build a trusting relationship that can help you to feel able to share difficult things. It’s a partnership and requires commitment and time.
I will offer a safe supportive confidential space where together we can explore your feelings and experiences as I believe you have within you the ability to work out what is best for you.
I have a wealth of experience working with many issues including depression, anxiety, self-harm, stress, personal relationships, health issues, trauma, family issues, maternal mental health, bereavement and loss, anger, low self-esteem and self-hatred.
I work with adults ( 18yrs +) and couples in Private Practice. I am currently working online only due to ongoing Covid cases and restrictions ( Zoom) and do not plan to resume face to face working for a few months. I have a confidential garden room with parking for face to face working in due course.
I have undertaken extensive training to meet the BACP competencies for online therapy. I follow the BACP Ethical Framework for my counselling practise and undertake regular professional counselling supervision and extensive regular professional training and CPD.
My first session
I offer a confidential and free 30 min zoom or phone call if required for any initial enquiry prior to a first session, please do contact me to arrange this.
Our first session is an opportunity to assess your needs, your expectations and hopes for counselling, and to see if we are a good fit and that you feel I’m the right counsellor for you.
In this first session we will discuss in much more detail the reasons that brought you to therapy and I can explain how I work and answer any questions or concerns you may have.
We will work at your pace and sessions are weekly usually same day and time each week. I offer short-term and longer-term therapy.
Sessions are weekly:
adult sessions £50 ( 50 mins)
couples sessions £70 (1 hour)
