About me

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.
I find  counselling and life coaching very rewarding, with very good results; My ability to counsel is through extensive training, life experiences and on going personal development. I have specialised in Bereavement and loss, which encompasses Depression and Anger Management, and I also have had vast experience with couple counselling and relationship difficulties.

I adhere ethically and morally to the counselling profession.

With empathy, honesty and a non-judgemental approach, I can give a person the ability to make life choices and help them change their lives for the better.

Fees

An initial 30 minute assessment session, to see if my couselling approach is the right approach for you, the client, is FREE.

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.

The sessions are held at my address which will be made clear to you when you confirm the booking.
