I offer person centred counselling, which means that I work with the aim of supporting my clients to explore themselves and their concerns in an empathic, non-judgemental and genuine way, to ultimately determine the right path for themselves in a safe and confidential setting.
An initial assessment session of 50 minutes (80 minutes for couples) is the first stage, during which a prospective client and I can meet and get to know each other, so that I can understand what the client might want to achieve through therapy and the client can understand what I am able to offer and whether they feel comfortable to work with me.
If we both feel that we can work together, I can offer weekly sessions on an open-ended basis or over a fixed period of time, if this is preferred.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold an Advanced Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, from a BACP Accredited course. I gained my qualification from South Essex College in 2010, and since then have been working as an Associate Counsellor with Phoenix Counselling Service and Forest Therapy Centre and in private practice. I also hold a Certificate in Person Centred Couples Counselling.
Areas of counselling I deal with
My fees start at £50 per session for individual clients and £75 per session for couples.
Fees for ongoing work will be agreed during the initial assessment session. The fee for an assessment session is £50 for individuals and £75 for couples.
Lower fees can sometimes be offered, depending on circumstances and availability, and would be agreed as part of an assessment session.
