We all experience times when life feels difficult or overwhelming or when anxiety or depression seem to be taking over. At times like this, having the opportunity to talk things through with someone in a safe and confidential environment can make a real difference. Counselling can provide you with the space and time to reflect and consider whether you would like to make changes or to decide what direction you want your life to take.
I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor, meaning I have been trained in a number of theoretical approaches. I can therefore work combining elements of Person-Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Transactional Analysis to best suit your needs and preferences. I am also able to work from a purely Person-Centred or CBT approach. I offer afford ably priced therapy, in order to ensure it is as widely accessible as possible. Some clients need just a couple of appointments to resolve an issue, while others may wish to engage in longer term work. Whatever you decide we will work together towards regaining balance and control in your life. In either case, we will regularly review our work together, to ensure we are progressing towards your goals. I believe the relationship between counsellor and client is crucial and therefore I offer the initial session at half price, to give you the opportunity to decide if I am the right counsellor for you.
I have experience of working with both adults and young people aged between 11 and 24, for a wide variety of issues. I am also able to offer relationship therapy for couples or within the family. As a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) I work within their Ethical Framework and receive regular supervision to ensure my work remains safe and ethical. I am also on the BACP Accredited Voluntary Register.
