£38 per 1 hour session.
payed one session in advance (Ie once we agree to work together client pays for an extra session which stays on account until the last session.)
I operate a sliding scale for people with limited incomes, on benefits or unable to earn. This is only possible through a balance of full paying clients and concessionary clients and therefore is not always available. Feel free to ask if I can accept a lower rate, or we can discuss it when we meet. Likewise if your circumstances change I may be able to accept less, or more.
My approach is sensitive, non judgemental and active. We work together to understand your needs.
Our conversations are confidential.
I use an Integrative and active method which aims to bring together or integrate parts of you that are in conflict. It also requires you to be active and involved in exploring your issues. Therapy is not a magic pill or cure that is done to you. It is more like a guided process of knowing oneself that leads to where you want to be.
We can also utilise creative and non-verbal work activities to enhance your explorations, if it feels right for you. So our conversation can also include writing, moving, role play or music if appropriate. These approaches can help us to communicate on a deeper level than just talking, or can give access to the hidden realms of the subconscious.
I aim to support diverse beliefs and lifestyles and would like to support people from challenging backgrounds to assert their rights and achieve their goals. I also have many years experience of working with people with learning disabilities and Autistic Spectrum Conditions, to help them to express themselves and to take control of their life choices.
Parents and carers can also benefit from counselling or therapy with someone who understands these pressures and stresses.
You are welcome to come for a 30min assessment, free of charge, to discuss what concerns you and how we might work together. You are then free to decide if you wish to proceed.
