Areas of counselling I deal with

Person -Centred Counselling usually helps to alleviate emotional and psychological pain. It nurtures self confidence, and improves self worth in most cases. The therapy usually enables the client to become more self aware and more able to make decisions. It affects the ENTIRE person.


£35.00 per meeting.
Each meeting lasts one hour.

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 your time, and mine, are equally important.

Further information

There may be a thousand reasons why you're feeling that you might need Counselling. Whatever the reason, choosing a counsellor can be difficult. You can probably access 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. Perhaps one that is less prescriptive. If so, please contact me.

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.

I would suggest that we use the first fifteen minutes of our first meeting for you to decide whether you feel comfortable with me, and for me to decide whether I feel that I can help you.

If you decided not to stay for the rest of the meeting, one hour usually, I would make no charge.

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. .
