Hello and thank you for visiting. My name is Skye and I am a masters qualified integrative counsellor and psychotherapist. I offer you a confidential, empathetic and professional space in which we would work together towards your counselling goal. Being 'Integrative' means I have no set way of working but use my knowledge, training and skills to create a bespoke way of working with each individual. I work in a very collaborative way to ensure we are addressing the issues you have brought to therapy in a way that you are comfortable with.
Coming to counselling can be a daunting idea at first. Whether you have been in therapy before or this is your first time, we would use our first session together to decide if and how we would like to work together. I will explain how counselling works should you wish, and answer any questions that you may have. Within the first session we would discuss what has brought you to therapy now, what you would like to achieve and what you may need from me as your therapist. We would also decide which type of counselling and psychotherapy would be most useful; Short term, open ended or psychosexual therapy, if your concern is psychosexual in nature.
I have a broad range of experience working with clients who have come to therapy for varying reasons. This may have been a previous or recent trauma, relationship or sexual issues, mental health issues, stress/anxiety or issues at work. Additionally, I have a specialisation in trauma and childhood sexual abuse. I offer an open, confidential space in which to explore any issues or difficult emotions you are currently facing, offering non judgmental support and a place to reflect and reframe.
Fees and Format
I offer a no cost initial 10 minute phone call to check in with each other and to schedule our first appointment. Our first session will be an assessment session in order to get a sense of how we would work together before deciding on how we will progress.
We would discuss and decide which type of therapy would be most appropriate for you during our assessment session. Individual counselling sessions are 50 minutes while couples range from 50 to 80 minutes. This will be discussed with both/all partners within the relationship during our initial assessment to decide on the best session time for you. I also offer telephone and skype sessions which would follow the same format as our face to face sessions.
I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and psychotherapy) and adhere to both the BACP and COSRT (College of sexual and relationship therapists) code of ethics. I regularly undertake CPD to add to my areas of knowledge and skills.

Short term counselling is suitable when you are experiencing current distress or issues relating to a current problem. This may be if you are experiencing stress at work, low level anxiety or depression, negative thinking and a range of other issues. With short term work we would be looking at setting a very clear goal to work towards during our time together.
Open ended counselling is suitable for those who know there are issues stemming from their past experiences. Open ended provides the opportunity to go back and work through these experiences, looking at your fundamental beliefs and challenging those that cause you pain. Open ended counselling is suitable for issues such as grief, childhood sexual abuse, loss and many more.
Finally I offer psychosexual therapy to individuals and couples. Psychosexual therapy may include working with a particular sexual problem you are experiencing, relationship issues, sexual shame and so on. I will see both individuals and couples for psychosexual work.
