My usual charge is £40 per session for a counselling session (50minutes).
I occasionally have slightly cheaper sessions available for low paid or unwaged clients - these do tend to fill up quickly.
What I offer is confidential and safe environment in which to explore your world, some of the issues that may be affecting you, and the feelings that arise for you when looking at your life.
I try to be both supportive and challenging, I'm not someone who will just nod and smile, i will engage with you in the therapy and between us will with hopefully make progress with your needs.
I am a supportive person, who is willing to go on your journey with you for however long you need my support. This may be a just for a few sessions or for much longer.
I have both a 'holistic' approach to working: Looking at your body language, your feelings, exploring what is not said, while working in the here-and-now,
AND a practical approach, exploring options, at how to reach into the world, to explore 'Can't' and Shouldn't', and to raise your awareness and increase your choices.
I work Monday to Wednesday during the day and early evening. Thursday afternoons and occasionally at weekends
