About me

I am an experienced and fully qualified counsellor. It is my belief that counselling can benefit everyone at times of distress, when feeling down, or simply just feeling overwhelmed.

I feel that the most important part of counselling is the counselling relationship which will allow the feeling of trust that is necessary to allow us to explore the difficult feelings that you are experiencing.

I offer a space to explore whatever feelings you may be experiencing in a non-judgemental way. I will treat any information with the strictest confidentiality. This is important because it will allow you to have the confidence and the comfort to know that whatever is discussed will remain safe and will not be shared with any other person.

My way of working is based in a psychodynamic theoretical orientation.  However, I do not operate in silence when working because it is important to have some feedback that will enable you to feel a connection with me and that we are working together to help you understand what is going on for you.

Counselling is a process, and the pace of that process is determined by you.  You will have control over what we discuss and when we do address certain topics of discussion. I believe counselling can offer more self-awareness which leads to the ability to make informed and better choices about your actions, rather than simply acting out of habit.

I  work with people who are in training to become counsellors fees for this work will negotiated on our first session. I am fully aware of the financial commitment that being in therapy  can be for people who are in training.

I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy ( BACP). Being a member of BACP, I work with and am bound by their ethical way of working.

Fees

My fee for a 50 minute session is £40.00

Initial session £20.00

My cancellation policy is that if you cancel  48 hours or more prior to the session there will be no charge.

There may also be some concessionary fees for students / low income individuals.

In the initial session, we will discuss what you would like to focus on and to decide if you think that we can work effectively together.

Further information

I work in a psychodynamic way.  We would meet on a weekly basis at an agreed time that is convenient to both of us, and this time period would remain yours for the duration of our working together.

The length of the sessions will be 50 minutes.

The focus of our work will be lead by you and it can be as wide-ranging or as focused as you wish. I have worked with clients for  12 sessions and some for a more extended period of time.

Anything explored and discussed in the counselling room is confidential.  All discussions will be within the constraints of legal requirements, which will be explained in a first session.

I am a member of the BACP and, as such, I am committed to working ethically within their guidelines. As such, I will be using the services of a supervisor who will ensure my adherence to ethical and professional standards, but your confidentiality will always be maintained.

I work with individuals, adults, and with people in training to become therapists. I also work with people from  the legal profession who are having difficulties.
