Cathy McAllister Diploma CBT, Diploma Integrative Counselling MBACP
I am offering individual counselling, for those who are 18 and above. It would be via the phone at the moment, but I would call you. I am still offering a free half hour initial consultation and it's still without any obligation. My fee from then is £45 per session.
My experience has included working as a Telephone Counsellor for many years as well as volunteering for the Samaritans, prior to that.
If you are struggling, or know of someone who is, please get in touch. I will always do my best to help.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
I am also a qualified Supervisor and work with other professionals such as counsellors and support workers, with their client work. Helping and encouraging them to develop professionally and personally, by adhering to their agency policies and procedures, as well as a code of ethics which promotes good practice.
Although I am an Integrative Counsellor, I often work with Supervisee's who work with different models and together we help establish a learning environment, of support and guidance, enabling discussions to help facilitate their clients needs, whilst ensuring that they themselves remain safe.
As I work with clients who are 16 and above and do not have any experience of working with children, I am afraid that I cannot offer supervision to anyone who works with clients who are under 16.
