How counselling and I can help you
I recognise that in life people face many challenges and therapy can help them deal with these.
By talking through your issues and concerns I can help you understand where your life would like to go.
I am a qualified counsellor and have worked as a counsellor since 2016.
I have been a qualified hypnotherapist since 2014.
I have worked for an organisation which deals with substance misuse and addiction.
I currently work for an organisation which is concerned with people who have been abused. I have gained a good understanding of trauma, dealing with shame, eating disorders and PTSD whilst working for the organisation.
What happens when you contact me?
When you contact me I will arrange a first session at a mutually convenient time.
What to expect in your first session?
Your first session is a chance for you to discuss your issues and concerns.
I will also take personal details.
There is no charge for this session.
How often will you see me?
Generally initially I will see clients on a weekly basis.
I appreciate that this may not always be possible and so I am flexible to the needs of my client.
As the sessions progress the length of time in between sessions will increase. The length of time will be mutually agreed.
