Yvette Feyisayo, MBACP BA (Hons) - Malachite Counselling
I am an Integrative Counsellor drawing on various approaches to counselling including the Person-Centred approach which places emphasis on the therapeutic relationship between counsellor and client. Providing a safe supportive space free from judgement or discrimination can provide clients with a greater sense of self-awareness. A greater sense of self-awareness can aid in promoting increased confidence and self-worth, allowing the client to grow to their full potential. Working in an integrative way I may also draw from the CBT approach to help clients challenge their thoughts, feelings and patterns of behaviour by developing alternative ways of thinking, feeling and behaving. Additionally, the Psychodynamic approach can help clients explore thoughts, feelings and behaviours and how these may relate to early life experiences.
If you feel at a loss or struggling to make sense of life, counselling can give you the space to explore your concerns in a safe non-judgmental environment where you are able to talk, share and make sense of life's ups and downs. I am warm and engaging in my approach and will walk alongside you on your journey.

Initial Meeting £35 - Your first session provides a space to explore what you feel you may wish to work through in counselling and whether you feel counselling is right for you. It's important for you to find a counsellor you feel comfortable to work with. Therefore there is no obligation to come to further sessions.
Individuals sessions thereafter are between £45-£60 per session - Price agreed at Initial Meeting. Sessions are 50 minutes and normally weekly but can be tailored to meet individual needs for shift workers. I offer both short term solution focused sessions or longer term open ended sessions depending on your individual needs.
