Hello and a very warm welcome to my page. If you're feeling overwhelmed, anxious or experiencing more bad days than good ones it can help to talk about those feelings with someone who is there solely for your benefit. Together we can work out the cause of those feelings, alleviate the symptoms and help you lead a more balanced life.
Counselling sessions last 50 minutes and in that time we will focus on whatever is happening for you or the cause of your unwanted feelings. I work in several different ways according to your needs and personal preference but always with the focus on supporting you to make positive change.
We can work indoors in the comfort of the therapy room at the Wendy Centre in Derby but I also offer the opportunity to work outside in different locations around Derby. By spending time outside, either walking or sitting, we can reconnect positively with our natural feelings and gain a greater perspective on our problems
I offer a free initial appointment where we can talk about what is bothering you and where I can answer any questions you may have about how we can work together.
If you decide you would like a second appointment we can schedule weekly or fortnightly appointments.
