Further information

Coming into counselling can feel quite over whelming so it may help to call or email me and we can set up an initial session.  We can discuss what you want from counselling and if you're happy to continue we can arrange a 2nd meeting and see each other weekly.  I offer both short and long term counselling working through our relationship whilst offering a safe therapeutic, non judgemental environment allowing us to explore past feelings and behavioural patterns that  may be affecting your ability to live more fully in the present. The aim is to help you to achieve understanding, self-compassion and acceptance by deepening awareness of and working through the origins of such patterns and to shed light on your relationships with others and to help you to make changes if you so wish.

Availability: I am currently available at the Custard Factory, Zellig building,  on Fridays between 9-00 am until 6-00 pm & also Saturdays between 9-00 am - 13-00 pm.  I also offer ad hoc sessions at The Wellness Health centre, Kingsheath B14 7EU.
