About me

I believe the therapeutic relationship is an important one. Within it we can explore and understand concerns from the past that may be influencing the present. A safe space is provided which enables us to look at issues which often cloud the here and now.  'Meeting Minds' offers a flexible, open ended approach tailored made to suit individual needs and expectations - whatever stage we are at on the road to recovery - and to help us stay on that road. Areas explored include::

  • relationships
  • anxiety
  • self-defeating beliefs
  • managing chronic health
  • stress in the workplace
  • life changes
  • low self esteem and confidence issues
  • addictions
  • loss and bereavement
  • abuse
  • emotional well-being
  • work/life balance
  • journaling
  • self expression through creativity eg art, writing

I offer daytime and evening appointments.

I have tutored courses including assertiveness in the workplace, handling stress, self management for chronic health conditions (Expert Patient Programme); provided self expression through the creative arts eg art, craft, music, drama, creative writing.

i have attained the Certificate in Life Coaching.

Experience

- My experience of empowering individuals through personal growth to achieve emotional well being has been acquired by working for many years in both the public and voluntary sectors.

- Working within the community I have supported and empowered individuals to tackle their addictions, help those who experience isolation and exclusion and also those experiencing depression and other mental health concerns.

-  As a co tutor on the NHS programme Solutions for Health,  I encourage individuals experiencing anxiety and stress to use self-management techniques - thereby taking responsibility for building their own emotional tool kit unique to their own individual needs.

- As a student supervisor, I have extensive experience of supporting and empowering both students and employees at all levels by helping them to manage their stress and anxiety in their working/educational environment

- I work with many clients who experience relationship issues, anxiety and depression.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I also offer life coaching for those who are functioning healthily in their life but seeking to find a way forward from their current situation and learn how they can set realistic goals for whatever they want to achieve in life. This can be achieved by mind mapping, developing coaching plans, time management, learning assertiveness techniques.

Fees




As an independent counsellor I am dedicated to providing a service which is accessible to as many people as possible including the least well-off and those with chronic health conditions. In these circumstances I am open to negotiation!

Costs are as follows:

  • I offer a FREE consultation (to assess if I can help and for us to assess if we can work together) for face to face sessions.
  • I charge £30.00 for each subsequent session

I also offer online and telephone counselling.


Please note that under 2012 legislation your home insurance provider may be able to help you with your counselling fees.  If a qualified medical practitioner has advised that you would benefit from therapeutic intervention then you may be able to apply for your fees to be refunded.
