I am an experienced, qualified Humanistic counsellor and I provide a compassionate, common-sense approach. My counselling is informed by Person-Centred, Gestalt, Existential, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Transactional Analysis and Solution Focused theories.
I provide short and long-term therapy, tailored to individual needs.
I offer you an empathic, respectful and a non-judgemental therapeutic relationship.
New to counselling therapy? You may be feeling unsure, ashamed or anxious about seeking professional help; this is completely okay and understandable. By visiting my website, you have taken the first step.
The second step is an initial consultation, or full session appointment if you prefer. This is an opportunity for us to set aside some time for you to describe the difficulties you are facing. I can further explain how I may be able to support you. I hope that this initial appointment will help you to decide if you would benefit from counselling; please be assured, there will be no obligation on your part to book further sessions.
Returning to counselling therapy? When we meet I will be interested to understand what worked well with your experiences of counselling in the past - and anything that you would like to be different this time. From this point, we can collaboratively agree the structure for future sessions for any issues that you want to address.
I provide a full range of counselling and support services. To help you get a better understanding of my areas of experience, I have listed them below.
These include but are not limited to the following:
• Abuse: Emotional, physical and sexual, domestic violence.
• Addiction: Alcohol, drugs, gambling, internet, sex.
• Low self-confidence / self-esteem
• Obsessive compulsive disorder
• Post-traumatic stress disorder
• Relationship problems
• Work-related stress
My Counselling and Supervision practice is available from Wednesday to Friday weekly:
• An initial 30 minute consultation is charged at £20.00.
• Counselling appointments up to 6pm are charged at £50.00 per 50 minute session.
• Counselling appointments after 6pm are charged at £60.00 per 50 minute session.
• Limited weekend appointments are available and subject to negotiation.
Payment is due at the time of each appointment by cash or cheque.
I require a notice period of 48 hours if you cannot attend your appointment; this allows me to offer your appointment time to other clients, who may be waiting to be seen. I will endeavour to give you the same notice period if I need to cancel your appointment.
Please note: If you are contacting me via telephone and I cannot answer, please leave a message on my confidential voicemail and I will return your call as soon as possible.
Please confirm if I can leave you a message if you are unable to answer.
