About me

Hello and welcome,

My name is Ashley and I would like to tell you something about what I feel I can offer you.

I have been providing confidential therapy within private and voluntary settings for over 10years and have been involved in counselling since 2005. I have experience of working with a variety of issues. This could include (but is certainly not limited to) bereavement, addictions, stress, depression, anxiety, loss, relationship issues or behaviours that might be causing problems.

As a person centred therapist, the way I work depends very much on the client’s needs. However, I am able to offer a variety of therapeutic techniques. For example, I do use the same resources as NHS (IAPT) Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Practitioners so I can provide short term focussed therapy. This can be really helpful for issues such as sleeping or eating disruptions, anxiety, phobias, health anxiety etc. Many of the clients I work with are referred from GP practices and some do prefer a more solution orientated approach.

As a trained assessor I would be able to take the time to work out what approach would be best for you. It may be that only one or two sessions would be needed to get you back on track. I have worked with clients who have benefitted from just one session as well as clients who have complex mental health needs and need long term support.

We will work to a clear contract with regular reviews to make sure your goals and aims for the therapy are being met. Please be assured that I will try my absolute best for you, no matter what the issues are. I am certainly not here to judge or tell you what to do, but we can try to find a way to resolve those things that may have been on your mind for some time.

As a fully insured, Accredited and Registered Professional member of the The National Counselling Society as well as a Registered Professional member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I am confident of providing the highest quality therapy. Feedback from clients I have worked with over the years has been consistently excellent and I hope you will find in me someone you can really trust to help you move forward with whatever is bothering you.

Couples counselling

Being in a couple can sometimes become difficult. Help each other to understand one another better and work through issues that may be causing problems in your relationship. Identify destructive patterns of behaviour which may keep occurring. Learn better ways of communicating and work together to find a shared view of your futures. To improve your relationship and quality of life together.

Couples counselling can be a way of working together to improve your relationship. Also it can be a way of exploring if being a couple is the right thing for you both. Couples who are in agreement to separate or divorce can use couples counselling to check this is the right thing to do and if so to discuss how to go about the best way to go about a split.

Further information

I am sometimes really busy and can’t respond straight away but if you leave a message I will aim to get back to you within 24 hours.

Please state if it is OK to leave messages as I am aware sometimes clients do not wish to let others know they have chosen to have counselling.

If you have any questions you would like to ask before booking a session, please feel free to send me an email. Alternatively, give me a call on 07792951869. I look forwards to hearing from you.

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.
