About me

Hello and welcome to my profile

My personal qualities of compassion, empathy and warmth, lead me to train to be a counsellor. I am a realist who understands that life isn't always easy. I am authentic and relational in my approach; which means I am myself, and look to build a relationship of trust and understanding with you. I will engage with you, not presenting as a blank screen. I am interested in people and believe we all want to connect to others, I am no exception, I am here to connect with you. I am here to get to know you, even the parts you may not like. I am here to get to know how you feel and will work to see your view of life.

About Counselling

For some people counselling can be a daunting thought, especially if it's your first experience of it. Sharing personal information with a stranger can feel scary; I understand this, and I am here to make your experience less frightening/daunting. I aim to give you a genuine, warm, compassionate, respectful, confidential experience of counselling, in a space which I have created with you in mind. We will meet once a week at the same time; which gives routine and stability when you are troubled. Our time together is 50 minutes, often called the 'counselling hour', its enough time to be able to explore what's going on for you without overwhelming you. It's a place for you to unburden yourself with someone who understands and is strong enough to carry some of your load. I offer open ended counselling, which means I am here alongside you for as long as you want help. You decide when it's time to fly solo.

About life

If life is a struggle then I am here to be alongside you and together explore your options, to enable you to live the life you want. All of us at some point in our lives, will experience times when we feel less able to cope. This  can impact relationships, work, studies and other areas of life. I understand that feelings of anxiety, depression, panic and anger can feel distressing; especially when thoughts play on a loop in your head. Talking to me can help bring understanding to your situation. I am trained to see the things that are not always clear for you to see. I am able to offer another perspective, choices, options and always hope.

If something is troubling you or you are feeling sad, alone, frightened, or worried by something contact me so that I can help, nothing is so big that it cannot be overcome. I have listed areas  which I work in but if you see that whatever you are experiencing is not listed, please call as I am open to working with all life issues.

Training, qualifications & experience

About my qualification and how I work

I have a diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. I am a integrative therapist and have studied different theories of counselling. These theories are, Person-centred, Psychodynamic, Existential, CBT and Attachment theory. It may help to think of them like my tool box. I can draw on the knowledge of these theories to enable me to bring understanding to your situation, which in turn can facilitate the changes you are looking for in your life. I work with whatever you bring to counselling. You set the agenda.

Member organisations

BACP

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Fees

My fees are £45 for a 50 minute session.

I believe counselling should be accessible for all those in need of help and support during times of difficulty. I am happy to discuss fees for those in financial hardship at this difficult time.

These are payable by bank transfer or cash. Further details are on my website: www.authenticallyforyou.co.uk

Further information

I am now working face to face with clients, Please see my website for my policy regarding safe working during this pandemic. In addition I will continue to work by telephone/FaceTime, for those who would prefer.

I have worked to create a safe, warm, comfortable, private space for us to engage and work together on whatever is troubling you at this time of your life. I have had you in my mind when creating this space. The walls are neutral to give a light and hopeful atmosphere. The colours simple to give a sense of calm. The textures of the cushions and sofa are soft and tactile, giving you the experience of a hug.

I am happy to discuss your counselling needs in person by appointment or by telephone. If you require more information before making up your mind about which counsellor to work with, please contact me. It is important to get the right counsellor for your needs. It is the Therapeutic relationship (the relationship between you and your therapist); which can bring about the changes you are looking for.
