About me

I am an experienced, qualified counsellor, registered with the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).  As a registered member of the BACP, I am bound by its Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy, and subject to its Professional Conduct Procedures.

If you are taking your first tentative steps towards acknowledging and improving a personal difficulty, I can offer a gentle, safe, non-judgemental, confidential space where we can work together to understand more about you, your life, your feelings and what you would like to achieve.

I work with clients using an integrative approach. This approach appreciates that no two clients are the same, so I will aim to use a counselling style that is best suited to you and your specific difficulty.  I work in a Person-Centred way, which means that I will have an empathic understanding of your difficulties from your perspective, offer you respect without judgement, and be genuine and prepared to involve myself and my experiences in our relationship.  I also make use of the Psychodynamic approach to better understand your difficulties. I believe that it is important to explore and understand your historic experiences in order to make more sense of the present.

Our first session will be the assessment session, where I will get to know you and the reasons you are seeking counselling, a little better. You will also have a chance to get to know me a little better. At the end of this first session, we can decide if we would feel comfortable working together.

Fees

Adult Individuals:

  • £35.00 initial assessment (up to one hour)
  • £45.00 per 50 minute session, weekly

Our initial assessment involves getting to know each other and deciding whether we would like to work together.  If we do decide to work together, we will agree on-going sessions. These appointments will be kept exclusively for you.  With this in mind, there is a retainer fee of one session in advance, which is non-refundable and pays for your final session.  This is also paid at the time of the initial assessment session and secures your regular timeslot.  I can accept cash, cheque or card payments.


Cancellation policy:

If you think you may be unable to attend your appointment, please contact me to discuss it. The cancellation period is 24 hours, and if you do not attend a session and have not been able to let me know beforehand, you may be charged the full fee. 
If I am on holiday or have to cancel our appointment, you will not be charged.
