Do you need help?
If you have found your way to this site, you are probably looking for someone to talk to about whatever it is that is troubling you. It can feel like a big step to look for a counsellor that you can trust, and you may wonder if counselling can make a difference.
I see counselling as providing a non-judgmental, safe, supportive environment where together we can talk about your hopes and goals and explore what is holding you back from living as you would like to.
Talking to a trained person can help you think about the underlying causes of problems, see your options, develop strategies, and create positive changes in your life.
What can counselling help with?
Research has shown counselling can help with:
Loss (perhaps through bereavement, divorce or redundancy).
What happens next?
Once you make contact, we can arrange an initial meeting where we can explore your needs and what you would like to gain from counselling. This meeting lasts up to 60 minutes and costs £30.
Research shows that the relationship between a counsellor and client is a major factor in how successful the therapy will be, so it is essential you feel comfortable with the counsellor you choose.
If you decide you would like to continue, then I will offer you a regular 50 minute appointment. It is helpful to decide on an initial block of sessions (for example 6 weeks, 12 weeks or 20 sessions). These sessions cost £45 a week.
If we feel that the way I work is not the best approach for you at the moment, I will seek to refer you to another local counsellor who can help you.
Sometimes it is helpful to talk to a counsellor before an initial meeting to ask any questions you have. Please feel free to call me on 07767 365193 if that sounds helpful.
