About me

DUE TO COVID PANDEMIC, all meetings are currently via either: email, telephone, WhatsApp Video, Skype or Zoom. Coronavirus lockdown and fear surrounding the virus poses enormous challenges for couples and family relationships, our frontline NHS workers as well as people in isolation. I am offering online individual and couples sessions to help with the emotional challenges of this time.

Hello and welcome to my profile - I hope you will find it helpful. Whatever your reason for seeking counselling, I hope I can make the process a little easier for you. I am a BACP accredited counsellor and psychotherapist and a trained couples/relationship counsellor.

Contact me in confidence on 07875 516965 or at andreacounselling@gmail.com

I provide a confidential, supportive and respectful service from a quiet and comfortable setting just six miles between Derby and Ashbourne and close to the University of Derby. As well as working privately I also work in the Voluntary sector in Derby.

I understand that it is essential that you feel comfortable with your therapist in order to achieve the inner changes that you need to make, and will offer you the time and space to talk about what troubles you.

Counselling often means expressing feelings that are painful and difficult, feelings which many of us experience at certain times in our lives. When this happens it can be difficult to stay positive and cope with everyday life. Life's twists and turns affect everyone in a different way and counselling is an opportunity to explore personal difficulties in a safe and supported way.

You may be in a confusing relationship or feel you might benefit from support with depression, anxiety, bereavement or stress. Or you may be facing other major life changes such as divorce or redundancy. These kinds of events often give rise to feelings of anxiousness and helplessness and can be a fertile place for our fears to escalate. I will work with you to gain awareness, clarity and confidence as well as deepen your understanding of yourself and your relationship with others.

Couples Counselling
Our relationships can be wonderful, but also one of the most stressful and challenging areas of life. A partner can change from being our most trusted and cherished soul mate, to the cause of our deepest distress and anguish. I work with you as a couple to help you gain a better understanding and awareness of yourselves and each other and help you to manage conflict more effectively.

Work Related Issues
I have worked for over 25 years in the Public Sector, mainly in Human Resources and this has given me insight into the dynamics of the workplace, the stresses of formal procedure and workplace stress.

Anxiety
We all worry from time to time, but for some worry is constantly on our mind and often not linked to a specific situation or event. It can cause you problems sleeping, affect how you manage your job as well as impact on close relationships. I will work with you to understand this condition and help with techniques to help manage it better.

I am interested in what makes us do the things we do and why we do them in the way we do them.  I am interested in the whole person and work beyond the current problem to help realise long-term change.

Issues that I work with include:

relationship issues, family issues, sexual abuse, anxiety, stress, bereavement, anger, loss, divorce, trauma, depression, bullying, physical and emotional abuse, work related stress and personality behaviours.

I anchor my practice in Humanistic Theory, but also draw on my integrative training as is most appropriate and beneficial to the individual client and includes CBT and Mindfulness techniques, Stress Management and Gestalt influences. I believe everyone is unique and 'one size does not fit all'.

I am also interested in the spiritual dimension of psychotherapy and the search for meaning, tolerance and inclusion.  I know this means something different to everyone, but I believe there is something greater than the concrete world we see. I am committed to helping you to improve the quality of your life, expand your understanding and therefore increase your choices.

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority.

Fees

Fees

Individuals -£45 per session
Couples - £50 per session


Sometimes people find that one session is enough to make the changes they want to make. For others it takes more time to work on their difficulties. We will review our progress as we go along.

If you feel that you want to continue with further sessions, we can arrange a time and date to meet again. Usually appointments are made for the same time and day each week, although exceptions can be made if this is not convenient.

I appreciate the busyness of people's lives and offer evening and weekend appointments.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
