About me

In this unusual time of social distancing I can offer FaceTime, Skype or videoconference appointments via Zoom meetings app.

I am a Person-Cented, Therapeutic Counsellor, able to work with a wide variety of issues and emotional distress.

Person-Centred therapy is non-judgemental, non-directive and values the uniqueness of each person.

We will work at your own pace with your own belief systems, your unique cultural background and life experiences.

The aim is to provide safe, confidential conditions in which you may begin to thrive, enhance self-awareness and explore past and present difficulties.

Getting started

Having made the decision to see a counsellor, looking for and finding the right one can be very confusing and daunting. Especially when in distress.

For this reason I offer a reduced fee for the first session, free of any further commitment, allowing you to decide if I am the right counsellor for you.
Also, if you haven't experienced counselling before, it's an opportunity to see what a counselling session is like.

During this first session we will assess together what you require and hope to achieve from counselling.

Where, what and how long?

If you choose to go forward, generally we would agree a focus and how many sessions might be needed for the journey. We would decide together how it's progressing and if we needed to reduce or extend the number of sessions.

Our meetings will be an hour in length, usually at the same agreed time each week. I am an individual member of the BACP and work ethically within their framework.

Training, qualifications & experience
