There are many reasons why people choose to see me for private counselling. It doesn't have to be a big problem, anything that matters to you or you would like to discuss can be shared. I genuinely believe that talking things through can really help. Most people at some time in their lives experience difficulties or problems and feel things just aren't as they hoped they would be. It is often difficult to speak to those closest to you. Family and friends may have their own views about your concerns and find it difficult to accept your perspective.
The counselling I provide offers a safe, confidential place to talk about your life and anything that may be confusing, painful or uncomfortable. It allows you to talk with someone who is trained to listen attentively and to help you improve things. You will not be judged or given advice. Counselling is about helping you to develop insights into your problems and finding your own resources and strengths. It is about helping you to make your own choices and decisions and to take responsibility for your own life.
My role is to create a supportive space where you can explore your feelings and ultimately
gain a better understanding of your current situation and life choices.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
At The Abbey Clinic I work in partnership with a dietician to meet your emotional and nutritional needs of food related issues. I believe this will help to look at the underlying issues as well as achieving your weight loss/gain or maintaining your body weight.
The initial 30 minute consultation will be £25. It is really important that you feel able to work with me and it allows us to discuss your hopes and fears and your aims of coming to counselling. Subsequent sessions are £47 per 50 minutes and I do have a 24 hour cancellation policy.
I am able to offer evening and weekend sessions as I appreciate that many clients have work and family commitments.
There is ample free parking at both locations for clients. The Uxbridge location is also situated near the underground station and is served by U10 buses.
I have a particular interest in working with people who have a chaotic relationship with food and are struggling with weight, regardless of age.
