I have had turbulent times in my life and have found counselling to be of immense benefit. It has helped me to make sense of those times as well as the negative thoughts and feelings that can occur more regularly. Life can be difficult for all of us at times and a good counsellor can be invaluable! I feel that I am able to understand the problems that others are having and to listen without judgement. My own experience with counselling has been a positive one and I feel confident that it can be the same for you too. I have always been fascinated by how people work - our differences and similarities and our ability to overcome. I believe that we are all doing our best and,with support and understanding,are capable of coming back to lead good,productive lives.
I like to work as practically as possible so that progress can be seen and confidence and trust build. I will provide a safe environment in which to take on this work and I will encourage and support you through the process. We will work at your pace and you will be in charge within each session as we explore any difficult or painful feelings that arise.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained with Heartwood at Dartington Hall and have a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. My training is in Gestalt Therapy which brings together many different types of therapies enabling the Therapist to work in the most appropriate way with an individual. I have worked with clients with a broad range of problems; I have counselled men going into or coming out of Prison for the Probation Service as well as people with less dramatic but equally important problems that we can all face day-to-day.
Areas of counselling I deal with
- Domestic violence
- Emotional abuse
- Low self-confidence
- Low self-esteem
- Physical abuse
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Photos & videos
I charge £25 for the initial session during which we will talk about what your aims and expectations are and make a plan on how to achieve these. If we decide that we would like to work together we can talk about how many sessions it would be appropriate to expect. The sessions will last an hour and cost £35 each. There are concessionary rates open to students who are doing counselling training - just email or phone and we can discuss an appropriate fee.
