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 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.
