Sometimes life can be challenging and difficult and talking these issues through with a qualified counsellor can help. Whether it is something that is happening now or something that has happened to you in the past, talking to someone who is not a family member or a friend can give you the space and freedom to explore your situation fully in a safe and confidential environment where you can be yourself and explore your feelings without judgement.
The therapy process is about creating a trusting relationship in which we can work together in an open and respectful way to better help you to explore the issues that you chose to discuss. As a Person Centred Counsellor I believe that you have the resources to enable you to make the right decisions for you. Rather than offering you advice or telling you what to do, we will work together to explore your situation and find your own understanding of whatever it is that has been challenging or worrying you.
I hope our work will enable you to reflect on what is troubling you and through the counselling process you can feel unburdened, whether it is through making a change, or gaining acceptance of a life event, but most importantly to become able to positively move forward in your life.
Training, qualifications & experience
BA Hons in Business Management
Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
Certificate in Counselling Skills
After 18 year working in a variety of business roles, I decided to retrain and pursue a more rewarding career supporting people through counselling.
I am a qualified Person Centred counsellor and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I work within the guidelines of the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice. I have obtained the BACP Certificate of Proficiency and have regular supervision. I also hold a clear Disclosure and Barring (DBS) check formally a Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) check.
I work from home in Weston Turville. I also work as a school counsellor within a local secondary school and within an agency setting in the Youth Enquiry Service.
Areas of counselling I deal with
- Affairs and betrayals
- Bipolar disorder/Manic depression
- Carer support
- Child related issues
- Domestic violence
- Emotional abuse
- Family issues
- Generalised anxiety disorder
- Low self-confidence
- Low self-esteem
Counselling sessions last 50 minutes, normally on a weekly basis at a time agreed between us.
I charge £40 per session.
However the first session will be charged at £20 as it is an opportunity for you to understand how I work and decide whether you feel that we can work effectively together. It is an opportunity to answer any questions you may have concerning the counselling process and to discuss your needs and what you would like to get out of our sessions together.
