About me

Here at Transitions Counselling I offer short and long term Counselling and Psychotherapy at £55-60 a session.

I am a registered, accredited member of the BACP - this means that my work has been approved by the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy, (one of the national bodies of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and am bound by it's ethical principles. I'm also a Bupa recognised provider of Psychotherapy. 

In a session you are free to talk about whatever it is that is troubling you. I will be working to provide a safe space to help you explore and develop within a genuine empathic relationship. I offer my honest perspective in a trusting, caring and confidential environment.

I work by helping clients make links between their current difficulties, and their past experiences. By understanding the past more clearly, I feel people can free themselves from negative conditioning and detrimental behaviours.

Perhaps you want to explore more specific questions, "who am I", "what do I want out of life" or "why do I always end up in the same situation". You may want help coming to terms with a crisis in your life, or a relationship difficulty that you are having, or maybe to explore uncomfortable feelings.
