About me

Hello and thank you for visiting my page.

I am a qualified therapist/counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), adhering to the BACP's code of conduct and ethics.

I believe in people as individuals; their endeavours, their challenges, their turmoil and their stories. I am passionate about the work I do and will work collaboratively with you to establish your needs, struggles, aims and hopes.
I feel that each person has the potential for positive growth by gaining greater insight and a fresh perspective on their life, allowing recognition of their own personal strengths and possibilities.

What can I offer you?  Whatever issue you bring to the therapy room it can be valuable to work with someone who is totally independent from your life.
I offer a compassionate and relational approach, with a willingness to work at your own pace and to your own agenda, which gives you the opportunity to feel, to think and to fully explore your own feelings within an understanding, non-judgemental and confidential relationship.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling
  • Certificate in Psychotherapeutic Counselling
  • Volunteer Counsellor at local Hospice
  • Volunteer Counsellor at local branch of a National Mental Health Charity.
  • I undertake regular ongoing training and workshops for personal and professional development and attend regular supervision.

Fees

I offer you a FREE, no obligation initial consultation. This will be an opportunity for you to see if I am the right counsellor for you and if we feel we can work together.

Subsequently, my fees are £35 per session (I hour), payable by cash or cheque.
