About me and my therapy practice
Any of us can become stressed and low when life feels difficult, and we all need trusting relationships to stay well emotionally. The relationship of trust we can build together will enable you to share openly, explore, understand and become more fully yourself. I work in an integrative way,bringing together different approaches in a flexible response to individual need to support your process of personal growth and connectedness. With over 18 years' experience as a generic counsellor in community counselling organizations, and experience in private counselling and for Employer Assisted Programmes , I have worked both short and longer term with people of all ages and backgrounds. I am committed to my own growth through personal development , because this self-knowledge is an essential foundation for helping others. Please feel welcome to contact me to talk about any queries you may have about coming for counselling. Telephone counselling available during the Covid crisis.
My practice room is on the ground floor with ensuite facilities. There are two shallow steps into the porch area before entering the counselling room.
My first session
The first session is arranged after a phone consultation , and costs £25 . It is an opportunity for us to discuss in more detail what the difficulties are and what you would like from counselling, and for you to ask any questions. After this we can decide if we wish to continue, and can arrange a series of sessions so that you can get a better feel for how I work and we can start to establish a rapport. After this it will be possible for us to discuss continuing under a shorter or longer term arrangement, whichever is appropriate.
