About me

Hello and welcome,

I am a Christian and counsellor trained in the person-centred approach with cognitive behavioural skills. I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, so you can be assured of an accepting, knowledgeable and professional counsellor who will be with you through your therapeutic experience.

We will meet in my counselling room at a local GP Practice where you and I will get to know one another, The first time we meet is generally known as an Initial Meeting (for obvious reasons) and it's an opportunity for me to explain what counselling is; I rather like "an intentionally helpful conversation" but, of course, I will go into far more detail so you will have as much information as possible to help you make an informed decision. I will explain what I can safely offer in terms of confidentiality, and it's a time for you to decide whether you can work with me, whether counselling is the right decision and course of action for you to take at this time and if so, how many times you would like us to contract to meet for. I currently charge £35 per session, £45 per session for couple counselling.

I hope you find a way through your difficulties and if you choose to contact me I look forward to meeting and supporting you as you find a better way of living for you.

Best wishes,
