My professional counselling services are, and I say this with tongue in cheek, to that similar of a computer. For instance sometimes when we have a virus we have to 'go back' or 'restore' don't we, I advocate this methodology interpreted into my counselling skills - who knows how far the 'restore' button has to go back in order for the repair to take place. So restoration with a client v computer is relatively the same because software has to be re-installed with drivers that are not tarnished with a virus that will affect the computer.
Conversely this happens with a client. Bit by bit the outer layers of issues or problems that have occurred and re-occur, are examined and talked about and reasonably accepted. Contamination I referred to above has now disappeared and ones life is gently put back into place - making the client feel whole again. And I add that I will be with you one step at a time for the journey.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been studying it seems for at least ten years. Initially I undertook an Open University degree in Psychology having studied;

The optimum charge is £40 - the price is based on payment to my own counsellor and supervisor which are conditional as part of being a counsellor and also for any items I use for instance, paint, paper, overalls etc.
However that price can be lowered considering the clients finance.
I offer a 50 minute service which requires the client to arrive promptly on the same day each week. An assessment will take place initially to understand whether a good client/counsellor relationship is agreed, or if either party feel that a therapeutic alliance is not suitable for counselling.
