Areas of counselling I deal with
Person -Centred Counselling usually helps to alleviate emotional and psychological pain. It improves self confidence, and improves self worth in most cases. The therapy usually enables the client to become more self aware, self directing, and more able to make decisions.
If you wished to find out more about Person Centred Counselling I recommend you read Carl Rogers' Books, 'Client Centred Therapy', and/or 'On Becoming a Person'. He explains the process far better than I ever could.
£35.00 per (hour) meeting.
Cancellations, except emergencies of course, need to be made at least a day before. This gives me time to re-organise my time.
If I have to cancel for any reason, I shall give you as much notice as I'm able to, as I feel that your time, and mine, are EQUALLY important.
There may be a thousand reasons why you're feeling that you might need Counselling right now, but whatever the reason, choosing a counsellor can be difficult. You may be able to get Cognitive Behavioural Therapy though your doctor at no cost. Maybe you've already done so and have been told that there's a waiting list and you feel the need for more immediate help. Or maybe Cognitive Behavioural Therapy has not helped in the past and you want to see a therapist who uses a different approach, a more 'humanistic' one.
I promise to see you as soon as possible, usually within the same week, and I promise to offer you a service that is confidential and professional, Person -Centred, provided in comfortable surroundings, in a quiet discreet location.
May I suggest that you use the first fifteen minutes of your first meeting to decide whether you feel I'm able to help you, or not. No charge...if not !

Supervision & training
As an experienced counsellor and therapist, I offer client-centred independent and confidential supervision to other counsellors, and therapists; student level, or more experienced, and to anyone who works in a care giving or pastoral support role, as in schools and colleges, universities, hospices or any other organisation where the psychological well being of practitioners themselves, which is essential, is valued. .View supervision profile
