About me

Whether you are experiencing depression, anxiety, anger, having difficulties with relationships or experiencing loss, talking to someone can help you make sense of your feelings.   Together we can find a way to boost your self-confidence, empowering you to make informed choices about your path in life.  Everyone is unique. Only you as an individual can know what is right for you. The key is to unlock that knowledge and through person-centred counselling you can gain the tools you need to make positive changes in your life.

I offer a £20.00 initial assessment session which is an opportunity for us to get to know each other and see whether we feel happy to work together.  I am aware that you may be feeling a little anxious and I will do my best to reassure you and help you feel at ease.  Having had my own therapy, I have an understanding of how you may be feeling.  If you decide to begin counselling, we would normally agree to meet for 6 sessions and then look at whether you wished to continue.

Counselling sessions last for 50mins and I provide a confidential and safe environment for sessions to take place.  Everything we discuss during our sessions is confidential unless we talk about risk of serious harm to yourself or others.  In this case we would normally discuss disclosing this to someone such as a GP.  I attend regular monthly supervision in which I discuss client issues but my supervisor is unaware of my clients' identity.  Supervision is important in order to keep both myself and my clients safe and supported.

My person-centred approach means that you will always be in control of what you bring to the session.  Counselling is about exploring our feelings and trying to make sense of them, not about giving advice.  By working together we can find a way forward.

Please do contact me if you feel I can be of help.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
