About me and my therapy practice
I'm an experienced counsellor which respects the individual needs and rights of my clients. I have a caring and warm nature, and I’m here to listen, to help you explore and understand any of your issues. I have over 20 years working with people in a variety of settings and roles.
How I can help
Sometimes we can feel lost, out of kilter, confused, stressed or consumed with grief. I offer a safe therapeutic space in which to work with you to process and understand things you may find difficult to face alone. I believe that self-awareness is the foundation of positive growth towards psychological wellbeing. Throughout my training I have developed my own self awareness which has deepened my understanding of self. I know how emotional pain feels for me, but I don't assume I know how your emotional distress and pain feels for you. By listening to you I endeavour to understand your world from your perspective, empowering you to a self exploration which in turn can untangle emotions. I believe that everyone has the ability to make their own choices and decisions and act upon them accordingly, I will be along side you to facilitate the process.
Making the decision to start counselling might seem daunting. However, it is the first step towards overcoming personal difficulties and working towards positive changes.
My first session
What to expect in your first session
The first session provides an opportunity for us to meet each other. We will discuss matters such as, what has brought you to therapy and what do you want to achieve from the therapy. This session also offers the opportunity for us both to decide if we are going to be comfortable working together. I will inform you about confidentiality, fees, cancellations and contact. Also, you will be able to ask any questions you may have.
I offer individual counselling for £45 a session and couples counselling £60 a session.
