About me

Hello, I offer support with emotional issues and anxiety that you may have developed recently or over some time through a difficult period in your life.

Life can be challenging and talking to somebody neutral without being judged or rushed can be very valuable. I work from a very peaceful and confidential room, where you can feel safe to discuss what is troubling you. It is your choice what you want to discuss and when. You may feel apprehensive about entering into counselling, this is not unusual. I will support you through any difficult sessions and adapt to a pace that suits you.

What do I do next......

If you feel this might be right for you, contact me and we can look at a possible appointment for you.

What happens then......

1/2 hour session is available if you are unsure at this stage - this is for both of us to see if we are happy to work together. To chat about what your expectations are from counselling and for me to explain how I and Person Centred counselling works.

What then......

You can decide to go ahead with the counselling and book your first session or you can go away to think about it and contact me later if you decide it is right for you.

First session.......

At the beginning of this session we will agree and sign the contract. This is basically agreeing to work within the boundaries of the counselling relationship.

We will then discuss any goals you may have and what you might like to achieve, although it is quite common at this stage to not know either of these so don’t panic. It is all very relaxed and at your pace.

Then the rest of the session will be up to you what you would like to talk about....

How often do I see you......

You will find that counselling works better if you attend on a regular basis, weekly to begin with is preferable but we can discuss what is suitable for you.

Regular reviews.......

We may agree to regular reviews, maybe every 6 sessions. This is for both of us to look at what has been covered and if you are happy with how your counselling is progressing.

Is there anything I’ve forgotten......

Please do contact me if you have anymore questions that I have not covered or I may have forgotten.
