Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I am an experienced BACP registered Psychotherapist and able to work with a variety of clients on a short or long term basis.
The initial emphasis when starting therapy is to help you feel comfortable at ease, and to feel safe. It can sometimes be difficult meeting a counsellor for the first time but these feelings are quite normal and will soon pass.
I work in a warm and empathic way allowing you to explore your feelings without holding any judgment towards you. As we work together you should find that it becomes easier to explore your difficulties thus enabling you to make more sense of what's going on.
I am experienced in working with various issues as listed below. My fees are determined on what brings you to therapy. An example of this is set out below.
The initial 30 minute consultation is just £25. This consultation will allow you to discuss what brings you to therapy and ask me any questions that are important to you.
If you then decide that you wish commence therapy each session will last 50 minutes and will be charged at £45. I also offer block bookings of 6 sessions at a discounted rate.
For complex issues such as Sex or Pornography addiction my fees start at £65 for 50 minutes.
I am also fully insured.
Please contact me direct if you have any further questions.
