About me

Life can take many directions, some of which are unexpected and perhaps unwelcome. I became a counsellor to help people find a new balance when they experience difficulties in their lives. I support clients to find their own way forward in navigating the challenges life throws at us.

I am a qualified counsellor and am registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I use an integrative counselling framework which is grounded in the Humanistic approach, specifically working to integrate aspects of art therapy into many of my client's sessions. I have years of experience of working with clients with a range of issues on both a short and long term basis.

I work alongside clients to explore their issues in a safe, non-judgemental environment. I work to build a trusting relationship where clients are able to discuss issues or feelings that they may be unable to share with family or friends. Together we will seek a way for you to feel better about yourself by gaining a better understanding of your difficulties and giving you the tools to overcome the unique challenges in your life.

As well as providing general counselling focusing on individual client's difficulties, I have specialised training and experience working with clients who have experienced a bereavement. Some of the issues I work with are:

  • loneliness
  • bereavement
  • difficulties at work
  • anxiety
  • stress
  • drug and alcohol use and abuse
  • depression
  • feelings of sadness
  • lack of confidence
  • low self-esteem
  • relationship issues
  • family issues

These are the most common issues, but if your issue is not on the list please feel free to still contact me.

Our sessions will take place at an agreed day and time. I offer a free initial consultation which will give us a chance to get to know each other, discuss what counselling is and look at the concerns and issues you want to work on.

Each additional session is 50 minutes long and can either be face-to-face or over Skype.

Face-to-face session: £40

Skype Session: £35

A limited amount of spaces are available at a reduced or concession rate for those in financial difficulties - to be discussed on an individual basis.

Further information

There are no set rules of how many sessions you will need to overcome your challenges as this varies for each individual, but we will agree an initial number of sessions in our first meeting. This will be included in our counselling contract, which can be changed and reviewed as you move forward.
