About me

Counselling is not an easy option, it takes courage to trust that the person sitting opposite you will offer a safe non-judgmental space. Somewhere that you can be free to explore your issues and any problems that you have. It is important to feel comfortable with the counsellor you chose.

I offer the first session free, giving you room to check me out and to make a decision on whether or not I will be the right person for you.

Counselling is however is an incredible experience and I have every faith and confidence in its ability to bring about therapeutic change, and personal growth.

I offer a confidential and secure service and work within the BACP ethical framework for the counselling profession. I have over 25 years experience and work using Person Centred theory. This means my counselling practice is tailored to your individual needs and uniqueness. I provide a safe space where you can explore any difficulties, enabling you to work through your issues and concerns. This can be very challenging but it provides a sense of increased self-worth and personal growth.

I also am qualified in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitizing and Reprocessing) Theory which the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommends. This is a different theoretical approach where bilateral stimulation is used to process stuck memories usually resulting from some form of trauma. This can be useful for PTSD (Post-traumatic Stress Disorder) which can often occur after experiences such as military combat, physical assault, rape, or car accidents.

I offer both short and long term therapy and will negotiate on cost depending on the type of counselling and duration you require. My normal charge for an hours counselling is £55. The first session is free, this can help establish if I am the right counsellor for you.

My experience is vast, and I have worked with many people male and female and their issues over the years. My specialisms include relationships and family issues, rape, sexual violence, childhood sexual abuse, low self-worth and esteem, depression. A host of coping mechanisms such as self-harm, OCD, hoarding, drugs and alcohol.

Please feel free to inquire. If I am not the best person for you I will help point you in the right direction.
