About me

I am a fully qualified Counsellor & Psychotherapist I am also a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). I practice ethically within a confidential and safe setting.

I work in a way that offers warmth, empathy and integrity, believing that the therapeutic relationship between the client and counsellor is paramount to the counselling process. I provide a respectful, supportive relationship that encourages and nurtures personal growth. You will be accepted as yourself and can express your true thoughts and emotions without judgement. I offer a non-directive approach to counselling, providing you with the freedom to explore what you wish at a pace that is comfortable for you.

My counselling sessions are tailored to meet the needs of each individual client. I draw upon a range of techniques and approaches to support you. It is important that we explore your thoughts and emotions in a way that works for you. I will always seek your consent and collaboration in discovering what works best for you.

I have a special interest in supporting female & male survivors of abuse (including emotional, physical and sexual abuse). If you have experienced abuse, please don't suffer alone. I have supported many individuals and I will be happy to support you. Call me on 07519 320023 or email me to arrange a no obligation initial appointment. I look forward to hearing from you.


About Counselling

We all experience challenges throughout our life. However, sometimes aspects of our life may feel difficult, stressful and even overwhelming. When we experience such difficulties it is normal to feel anxiety, anger, fear and/or sadness. It can be challenging to express complex emotions with those closest to us, which sometimes leaves us feeling isolated and alone. Counselling is a talking therapy that provides a safe, supportive, confidential space to explore any kind of difficulty, no matter how big or small. It can help you to overcome current or past issues and can equip you with the resources required to tackle new challenges more effectively.

Fees

I offer initial sessions at a reduced rate of £30. This provides individuals with the opportunity to discuss what brings them to counselling in addition to exploring how we can work together.

Subsequent sessions are charged at:

£45 – 55 minute individual session

£40 - 55 minute individual session (Students)
