Occasionally we may all experience thoughts and feelings that may cause us difficulty and impact upon us in our everyday lives.
As a qualified Person-Centred Counsellor I will provide you with the space to explore any issues or concerns, anything that may be troubling you. The aim of person-centred therapy is to encourage and support you in working through or coming to terms with anything that you may be finding difficult.
I offer empathy, genuiness, and a non-judgmental attitude. All sessions will be in a confidential environment, and at a pace that is led by you. I really enjoy helping individuals by listening, encouraging and helping you with anything that is causing you distress, such as unresolved issues from the past or things that may be present in your everyday.
As a mature adult who has faced many challenges myself in life, I can fully understand how difficult, even daunting, taking that first step towards counselling can be.
I am an individual registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) a professional body. I adhere to the ethical guidelines for good practice. This means that I have regular supervision to ensure that any problems or concerns to do with my work are carefully monitored, so that boundaries are maintained and ethical consideration is given to clients at all times.
*I work from my own office in Witham, CM8. I work with ADULTS 18+ Male/Female
How Person-Centred Therapy Works.
You will be offered a 50 minute assessment session @ Fee £25.00.The assessment session will be for you to talk about any issues or concerns you may have, and what you would like to get out of counselling, and to decide whether we can work together.
All counselling sessions will be (50 minutes) on the same day and at the same time each week. If we decide we can work together a contract will then be agreed for six further sessions. Further Individual Sessions Monday-Friday 9am - 5pm @ Fee £35.00.
During our work together we can review how you are feeling, and whether you would like to finish counselling, have longer term counselling (move into open time/open ended time). I offer short term or longer term counselling depending on your needs.
Counselling sessions will take place in my therapy room in Witham where I will provide you with a safe & confidential environment, a space where trust can be built and you can feel comfortable enough to talk about anything that is troubling you, or may be causing you distress.
