I am a trained and qualified counsellor with experience in working with a wide range of emotional and psychological issues including anxiety, stress, depression and generally help you face life's upheavals, big or small; counselling may also strengthen your spirit or encourage you to grow, cultivating self-awareness and broadening the scope of your resources. You are invited and encouraged to talk openly about anything which may trouble you or puzzle you, thoughts, feelings, behaviour, in a completely confidential and non-judgemental setting.
My role is to support you in this process and explore your experience with you, offering the opportunity of an open space where there is no right or wrong but everything is possible.
I offer long and short-term face to face work with individuals as mutually agreed depending on their needs. My practice covers relationships, depression, anxiety, trauma, bereavement and loss, domestic abuse, self-confidence, loss of meaning.
I offer counselling in English and French

Areas of counselling I deal with
£50.00 per session
I charge £50 per 50mn session. The initial assessment is only charged if you decide to carry on with the sessions. A small number of concessionary places are available, fee to be discussed.
I have no sessions available after 3pm.
You have decided to give counselling a try, what should you do next? First, contact me by phone or e-mail. If you can't get through to me, do leave a message and I will call you back.
Then I will arrange for an assessment session with you during which we will discuss your needs and anything you may wish to enquire about regarding the process of counselling. We will also decide then on the duration of our work together. Short term counselling is usually over as few as six sessions, whereas long term work is usually open-ended.
