Counselling aims to help you explore your circumstances, understand your feelings, thoughts and behaviour and so be better equipped to make decisions. It is a completely confidential process.
I am a counsellor with 20 years experience working with a variety of counselling models in an eclectic way. During these years I have worked in the statutory setting and voluntary agency area. Since qualifying as a counsellor in 1997 I have many years experience of working with a variety of issues. My work with clients is confidential and I work according to the code and ethics of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapy (BACP). As a member of BACP I am bound by its ethical framework for good practice in counselling and psychotherapy, subject to the professional procedure there in.
Counselling sessions last for 50 minutes and are usually weekly.
The first session lasting 40 minutes is free to assess if you would like to go ahead with the counselling process.
The number of counselling sessions are not fixed and can be negotiated to suit your circumstances.
The Counselling Fee is £40 per session.
