If you are reading my page then it is possible that either you or someone you know is going through a tough time.
Sometimes life can be difficult, it can be something that has happened in your past that is still affecting you or it can be day to day anxieties or problems such as anxiety, grief and low self-esteem.
By us working together counselling may well help you overcome these.
I usually work with people on a one to one basis however if you need to bring someone with you initially for support then that is perfectly fine.
I can offer you a safe and confidential environment to work through your problems.
If you would like to know more about how counselling may help you then please contact me on 07538 224397 or email me: email@example.com for further information.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Per 50 min session: £45.00
Young People (10 to 17 years old):
Per 50 min session: £45.00
I offer a free initial 30 minute session for us to meet and discuss how we can work together, if following this a session is booked a commitment is required to pay for that session.
It may be possible to offer concessions depending on circumstances, please contact me by email: firstname.lastname@example.org by phone: 07538 224397 for further information.
I know how difficult it can be to make that first step to see a counsellor but please be assured that I will do all I can to put you at ease.
During that first phone call I will explain how I work as a counsellor and what you can expect on our initial session.
You can then decide if you would like to arrange to meet for a session.
