Hello and welcome,
If you are currently experiencing painful feelings or a difficult situation, you have already made a positive start by looking into counselling. If you decide to start therapy with me, I will listen without judging so that you can explore and share your thoughts and feelings in a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space.
I work in a warm and empathic way and I consider myself to be non judgemental and ethical in my practice. I love my work, and respect the people I work with. I know how difficult it is to make the first appointment and go through counselling but I also know that counselling can lead you to a more fulfilling life. You may find that through counselling you develop more insight into your life and gain greater self-awareness so that you can start to envisage positive yet realistic change for your future.
I am a fully qualified counsellor working in a person-centred way on both a short and long term basis with clients according to preference and need. I choose to work flexibly, incorporating ways of working that will help you to move forward.

Individuals per hour session, my standard rate per hourly session is £40. However, if this is not affordable, I also offer a reduced rate for a limited number of places, so please do check availability when booking.
Making sure you feel comfortable when choosing your counsellor is highly important and is the reason I offer a free, no obligation, half-hour meeting, giving you a chance to come and meet me and also see the premises from which I work. It's crucial that you feel at ease and you are invited to ask me questions and generally spend a little time to try and get a good sense of what it might be like for us to work together.
If after the half-hour you decide to go away to think further about the sessions, then this is absolutely fine and there is no charge for that time.
I offer a confidential counselling service, according to the NCS guidelines, I have regular supervision and ongoing professional development.
I offer counselling in Hampton, Peterborough and Rippingale.
I am fully insured.
I work days and some evenings, last appointments run from 6.00pm until 7.00pm, I will try my best to accommodate a time that suits you.
There is car parking available outside or at the rear of the premises and frequent bus services run from the front door.
Please feel free to call me for an informal chat about anything at all to do with attending counselling sessions; I have voicemail and will always return your calls and emails.
