Uppingham Counselling Service is based in a comfortable office in the heart of Uppingham. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and carry comprehensive insurance. I offer Person Centred counselling and Restorative Justice consultations on a completely confidential basis.
I firmly believe that our feelings inform our thoughts and that negative feelings can disrupt our lives and of those around us. By using integrative counselling techniques, I help my clients to enhance and maintain their self by growing and learning to accept difficult aspects of their lives. I offer a non-judgmental and empathic environment, where the caring and confidential* relationship between client and counsellor is key to enhancing the client’s autonomy and self-worth.
I am qualified to work with young people and adults experiencing difficulties such as depression, suicidal thoughts, problems in the work place, eating disorders, substance misuse, family and relationship difficulties, divorce and bereavement. All of my clients** are asked to sign a contract setting out our working agreement and clarifying my boundaries and ethical obligations.
I am also happy to work with organisations to provide time limited counselling or longer term periods to deal with trauma in the work place. Please contact me to discuss a free assessment and to discuss our working contract.
I have recently started to offer therapy within vocal groups and offer help to choirs and vocalists who may be suffering with anxiety or group related issues. Along with Andrew Kennedy, International Operatic Tenor, Musician, Singing Teacher and Choir Director, we work together to promote positive mental health, reduce performance related stress and assist with vocal ability.
