Thanks for being brave enough to reach out for some help. That's a difficult thing to do. It means you are going to trust someone during a tough time in your life. A time when you feel vulnerable and often confused about why you feel the way you do when everyone else seems to be able to cope.
How Can I Help?
I hope I can be that someone. I have 14 years experience as a Counsellor and Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and I specialise in relationship counselling and have spent many years as a volunteer for Marriage Care (look us up!).
I hope you will find me warm and easy to talk to and I hope that you will feel safe and empowered to take back control of your life and your relationships.
Let's have an initial session and see if we can go on this journey together.
What Would a Session With Me Be Like?
We would have an initial session either at my home address or in Ormskirk where I have a room.
Face to face sessions are best but if distance is an issue we can chat on the phone or use Skype.
We spend the first session getting to know each other and you have a chance to ask questions and decide if you would like us to work together.
We arrange the sessions then at a time which is convenient for you.
I am flexible with my sessions and can offer some evenings and Saturday afternoons.
The sessions are usually weekly and are 50 minutes long.
There is no 'contract' as such for the number of sessions. That's something you and I discuss as we go along.
