Autonomy Counselling Services
Here at Autonomy Counselling, we offer high quality counselling services to support our to overcome their problems and achieve their potential in life.
As an actor/performer for 20 years, I spent the majority of my time looking into what makes people tick. Why do we do what we do and what do we get out of it? These questions are very rarely easy to answer about ourselves and this can lead us to feel life is unfulfilling or lead to a myriad of mental health issues. I use my experience in understanding others as a way of conceptualising what you want and how you might achieve it. I will never tell you what to do, but I will absolutely stand beside you whilst you build the strength and self-belief to do what you need to for yourself.
I understand how we can sometimes feel like we don't have a choice but to do what we're doing. I can support you to find a way of doing what you want to do without sacrificing your own happiness or well being. I also offer Critical Incident Stress Management services to corporations, large and small.
Perhaps you saw yourself on this page, maybe you didn't. Regardless of what's going on for you, know that there is support out there and that you don't have to manage it all alone. It doesn't mean you're weak, it doesn't mean you're broken, it just means you want support and help. So, even if you don't contact me, please do reach out, you deserve the support

Member organisations *
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Areas of counselling we deal with
Fees are £40 an hour at our city centre office. A reduced rate of £35 an hour is offered to block bookings of 6 weeks and this can taken advantage of repeatedly.
There are very limited spaces available on a sliding scale, dependent on income. These fees begin at £21 for those unable to seek work. Proof of eligibility may be required to access these reduced cost sessions and places are strictly limited. We would request that you get in touch and we will do what we can to support you. There may be a wait incurred for our lower rates, but we would be happy to stay in contact with you.
Should you have any questions, please visit our website or send an email/call. We will always respond to any queries we receive, and endeavour to ensure you have the best possible experience.
