Other areas of counselling I deal with
It is my aim to always provide an inclusive environment where diversity is celebrated and equality of opportunity is offered to all in a safe and supportive environment. I recognize that we are all human and come with our own personal experiences of victimisation and discrimination.
Working ethically is the cornerstone to the one to one counselling, group therapy and supervision I offer. I subscribe to and I am a member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists Ethical Framework (BACP). Currently, having gained the hours necessary, I am working towards completing my accreditation with the BACP.
I am happy to take referrals from individuals, a parent or carer; GPs and the NHS; voluntary or statutory services, or; schools, colleges and universities.
Before starting your counselling with me, I will invite you to an initial meeting where we can look at what you want to explore. The initial meeting may take up to an hour and twenty minutes, this meeting is a flat fee of Forty Pounds. This offers you an opportunity to discuss any questions or worries you may have.
My fees are always agreed in advance, and where necessary, I take into account your financial situation.
I am happy to offer both short-term (6 to 12), and long term sessions. I offer individual and group therapy and work with a broad spectrum of clients.
Short-term work can be looking at a specific area of your life where you may have a goal to work towards or a specific area of your life that you may need to look at.
Long-term work offers you a space to explore areas of your life as they come up, though this may also include looking at specific goals that you may want to work towards.
