Katy Roberts - "Two Counties Counselling" MBACP
Two Counties Counselling
South Church House
25/26 Market Place
Understanding, a good listener, empathetic, easy to talk to and open minded are some of the words used to describe me and my way of counselling.
I offer a safe,confidential and private environment in which you can just be yourself and allow you the space to explore your feelings, fears and emotions away from outside pressures and constraints.
Counselling can offer the opportunity to discover and explore your inner being without the fear of being judged or analysed.
The areas I work to support include:
stress, anger, fears, phobias, loss, fertility, relationship issues, childhood issues,divorce and separation, bereavement, abuse, bullying,self esteem, illness related issues,depression and anxiety related issues.
I specialise in working with young people and am more than aware of the pressures and issues faced by young people in today's society. This includes many years experience of working with looked after children in foster care and those struggling with family life and family relationships.
Finally I also have many years experience of working with young people from different countries,cultures and religions and am very aware of the upheaval and issues experienced when living in or moving to the UK.
I can offer appointments during the day and also in the evenings in a central well lit area of Newark, just off the market place.
I also work in the Epworth/Gainsborough and Bawtry area (north lincs/south yorks) where I am happy to visit clients at home or in a mutual location.

My sessions last 50 minutes and I charge £25-£30 per session.
Concessions can be discussed and offered,depending on your personal situation.
I offer an introductory first session in which we can explore how counselling works, how I work and how we can work together in the future, I charge £20 for this initial session.
For clients who book more than 6 sessions in advance I offer one session free of charge.
I offer face to face, telephone and email counselling.
I am also happy to visit you at home if this is an environment in which you feel more relaxed and at ease.
Counselling does not promise to offer any answers and is not a quick fix.
Some people spend many years in and out of counselling before they feel able to move on.
Others find a few sessions are all they need in which to progress personally, six sessions is usually the minimal suggested.
Counselling is not for everyone. There is not a requirement to constantly talk and the counsellor is not there to "fix" you.
If you don't enjoy it or find it doesn't help, you don't need to come again. If during the first session you feel its not for you, then I wont charge you, simple. Its all about choice, your choice.
Counselling can be a difficult, emotional and draining process. It may be some time before a client is able to feel or see any benefits.
All I can say is it saved me and helped me see myself and others a lot more clearly, be less judgemental and see the bigger, wider picture. Thus enabling me to move forward in a positive and more accepting way. This is why I decided to train to counsel others, give something back, and hope others could gain the benefits I have.
Why not try it for yourself ??
