Rosemary Cowan MA. UKCP accredited.
Are you feeling overwhelmed by a relationship issue, anxiety, depression or stress? Respectful, sensitive support and listening helps make a difference, even when the difficulties seem insurmountable. It is a strange truth that the situations we find most difficult, that test us to our limits, also wake us up to what is important, strengthen us and, ultimately, help us to grow.
I work face-to-face with both adult individuals and couples on a short or long-term basis.
My clients choose me because I have experience of working with a wide range of problems and issues and have direct and indirect experience of many of the kinds of difficulties that they are going through.
My focus is on people and relationships; what makes us do the things we do and why we believe what we do. I look at the whole person and beyond the current problem to help effect long-term change.
I am particularly interested in the spiritual dimension of psychotherapy and the search for meaning and integration.

Enneagram of Personality
My fees range from £50 - £70 for individuals for a 50 minutes session and from £90 - £110 for couples for a 90 minute session.
In these times of economic hardship, it's especially important to me that my work remains accessible, and is not just for the wealthy, so I ask my clients to place themselves where they intuitively feel they belong on the sliding scale of fees.
