I am a Person-Centred Counsellor and a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, MBACP(Accred), fully committed to abiding with the Ethical Framework of the BACP, which informs my practice, and you can be assured of my warmth, confidentiality and professionalism.
• I offer flexible appointments
• Long or short term counselling
• Warm, Safe and confidential setting
I can work in a range of areas such as:
• Low self-esteem and confidence building
• Anxiety and depression
• Counselling for physical, mental and sexual abuse
• Domestic Violence
• General Counselling
• Feeling stuck and wanting to grow
• Experiencing losses such as bereavement, divorce or redundancy
• Health issues
• Personal growth
• Dealing with unresolved issues
• Dissatisfaction and lack of fulfilment
The first step is to arrange an initial session to discuss what you would like to achieve from counselling, and make a start. It will also give you an idea of how I work, and an opportunity for you to ask me questions.
If you decide that counselling is for you, and we both feel we can work together, then we can arrange some further meetings. Sessions are usually weekly, at a specified time and last for 50 minutes.
