Hello, thank you for reading this brief summary about me and the service I am providing.I am an experienced Integrative counselor and member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I have been qualified for nearly 4 years, and am now working towards being Accredited. I am doing this because I believe in providing my clients with the best service possible. I work with agency clients from local charitable organisations, as well as private clients.
I have extensive and varied experience in working with the emotional issues that stop us leading the life we would feel more comfortable with.
I can provide a confidential, and safe environment in which we can explore the issues that you bring. I am here to listen and support you through this often difficult, but ultimately rewarding process of discovery and chosen change.
I can work short term which is often defined as 12 sessions, or long term/open ended with regular reviews depending on your needs.
I only work face to face because this is proven to be the most effective form of therapy.
I offer the initial assessment meeting at the lower rate of £25. This is because we each need to feel a connection in order to work well together, and for you to gain the most from our sessions. I find the best results are achieved through mutual commitment and engagement.
