Areas of counselling I deal with
Our Services and Fees.
Person-Centred Psychotherapy for Individuals
People enter into counselling for many different reasons, each with their own individual history, experiences, personal pressures and ways of coping.
I provide a safe and confidential place for you to talk though your difficulties and to explore your thoughts and feelings. The work will be done at your pace and you will be supported and cared for as I endeavour to understand your experience whilst offering insights along the way as you change and grow.
Many people who enter into counselling find it to be a life changing experience. The process of counselling facilitates deep personal insight and increasingly meaningful self acceptance. These qualities are then usually taken into personal and work relationships and are a catalyst for wider change and fulfilment.
I have specialist interest in the application of neuroscience to my clinical practice and how this is applied to working with anxiety, panic, low mood, trauma and PTSD and Dissociative Identity Disorder.
I offer Psychotherapy (informed by and applying neuroscience) for 1 hour at £60 per session.
I provide a very limited number of reduced rate sessions. Please ask if you need to access this service. We will be happy to discuss availability and if your circumstances qualify you for this service.
N.B. These places are very limited and we may need to refer you to another service.
I offer clinical supervision at the rate of £60 Per Hour provided. The rate will be higher if in private practice and will be agreed after our initial meeting. This includes administration and emergency out of hours telephone contact. It is important that we can establish and sustain a supervisory relationship, therefore an initial meeting (at a nominal fee of £40.00) to explore our compatability would be necessary. Neither of us would be obligated to work together after that initial meeting.
