I am a BACP registered counsellor and psychotherapist with over 7 years experience of working in a variety of counselling roles. My work is mainly with men who need some extra independent and professional support in their lives to see them through challenging periods in their life and who want confidentiality and a non-judgmental approach that helps them gain practical skills to make important life changes. Or quite often their partner or family may have asked them to seek counselling help.
I will always demonstrate respect and compassion for you and take your individual concerns seriously and without criticism or complicated psychoanalysis – with an objective and experienced professional eye. My intention is always to work with you as a team to increase your resilience and confidence. We will look to make change where you can and deal better with those things where change may not be possible.
I believe counselling doesn’t have to be complicated - in essence it is two people having an intelligent conversation with a specific and helpful purpose – and carving out some space in a fast-paced world to talk confidentially about the things that matter to you.
Brief or longer counselling is available – you choose. Frequency is also your decision according to your needs and what your life and finances allow. You may wish to try one session and then make your mind up. Even if we decide not to work together, I can often recommend how you might get further help.
I work from a professional discrete office in a business area of central Stafford with easy and free parking.
I have a small number of sessions available for a reduced fee. I am also usually able to offer an initial consultation within a few days. Please call me for further details.
