I have been counselling for ten years and have worked within the NHS with GP referrals, and with the bereavement counselling charity Cruse. In that time I have worked with people of all ages and backgrounds with a wide range of issues and difficulties. Some examples are
- bereavement and loss
- adult survivors of sexual abuse
- work related stress and redundancy
- family relationship problems.
Counselling can help you move forward. I won't tell you what to do but I will work with you in a focussed way to help you find a way through your difficulties.
Our relationship is key so feeling able to talk to me is really important. You can phone or email me before making a decision without any obligation, and you can have a look at my website to find out a bit more about me.
Sessions last approximately 50 minutes and can be booked as a single session. When we first meet we will discuss what you would like to get out of counselling and if we work over a number of sessions, usually on a weekly or fortnightly basis, we will check how it feels for you.
If you phone or email and I'm not available, I will get back to you as soon as I can.
