Other areas of counselling I deal with
psychological management of chronic pain conditions.
chronic pain can have a huge negative impact on the lives of sufferers and families. We now recognise that pain is not only a physical sensation, it also has a psychological and social impact on the suffer. It’s not always possible to ‘cure’ pain, however, suffers can learn to manage the impact of pain on their lives and learn new strategies to help them rebuild a healthier lifestyle.
My fees are £75 per hour for individual therapy.
I offer confidential, consultations and therapy. I am based in Londonderry, in The Centre of Well Being. Therapy is individually tailored on the basis of a comprehensive psychological assessment of the needs of each client. Appointments can be arranged during the day or evening to suit client needs. I can be contacted by phone or email. All contacts will be responded to as quickly as possible.
i have worked with clients both within the NHS and in Private Practice for over 25 years. Psychological distress can have a huge impact on the lives of both individuals and their families. I offer a warm, caring environment where clients can feel safe to share their experiences; to learn new ways to manage their difficulties and to develop healthier more fulfilling lives. I work with individuals and small groups, groups may include, building healthy communication skills, self development, self-esteem building and anger management.
Change isn’t easy but it is worthwhile, so if you feel now is your time to create effective changes in your life I would be happy to hear from you.
