Hello, thank you for looking at my profile, in doing so, you have already taken that initial step in obtaining answers.In seeking counselling, you can take ownership of your life's difficulties and issues, combat anxiety and find the ability to seek solutions to many problems such as depression and general anxiety disorders.
I use a number of therapeutic styles, mainly I am person centred, with the added skill of life coaching.

My fee is £30 per session for individual counselling, which is payable at the end of each session. (I cannot accept payment cards). If you are unable to make an appointment, 50% of the fee will be charged. The reason for this is that I allocate that time for you, and only for you.
Weekend appointments are charged at £50 per session.
I offer a student discount for those in education.
Counselling for Couples is charged at £50 per session, or £70 per session at weekends.
Sessions are weekly, unless agreed. They last 50 minutes. We will agree a convenient time and day that suits us both; you will then have this appointment slot each time for as long as you desire.
