About me

I am passionate about counselling,through my experience of being a client in a particularly challenging time in my life many years ago. I decided to train as a counsellor, I qualified in 2009. I remember how anxious I felt about starting my counselling as a client and try to keep that in mind when meeting a client for the first time.

First Steps

If you decide after exploring my profile that you would like to know more please get in touch. We can have a brief chat about what you are hoping for from counselling and whether you feel I am someone you could work with. If so we can agree a time that is good for you to arrange a first session and then if it feels right for you, to meet weekly or fortnightly.Generally I have a wait of 2-3 weeks before I am able to start work with new clients.

I work flexible hours so day times, and some early evenings.

Fees

Counselling 10-15 minute informal assessment,face to face meeting or call, no charge.

Thereafter £40 per 55 minute session.

I can offer some concessions  for people on low incomes and students.

Supervision

£ 60 per 1.5 hrs. I offer some concessions for counsellors in training.

As a counsellor, I have a professional responsibility to take good care of my clients and my own psychological and emotional well being.This often means I am very well aware of the stresses and strains which affect us day to day as well as with those unexpected life events that can shake us to the core. Given a safe comfortable space and place which offers a non judgemental, sensitive and supportive atmosphere often clients find themselves looking forward in a kindly,hopeful way and not in a fearful one...

Unfortunately, at the moment some of the buildings I work from do not have access for people who have restricted mobility, apologies.
