Hello and welcome.
About me. I am an experienced qualified Integrative counsellor with 13 years experience in clinical practice. I am a registered member of the BACP. (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) .
Counselling is an opportunity for the client to explore his/her dilemmas and discover new choices and opportunities or coping strategies throughout a difficult time.
Sometimes, we need assistance in the exploration of our issues and dilemmas, to find a more comfortable, meaningful way to live. Clients often thrive within the unique opportunity which counselling can provide.
I am able to consider different perspectives in my approach to client work and offer approaches and interventions tailored to meet individual need.
A member of the BACP, my work is Ethical and professional
I have worked as a qualified lecturer in Counselling studies in Further Educational settings and have a high work ethic and consider myself to be reliable and dedicated.
If you think counselling may be for you, and that you may benefit from receiving support from a qualified, experienced counsellor, then please get in touch and arrange an initial session to determine the next best step for you.
Sessions last for approximately 50 minutes to an hour and fees are £55 per session.
I work from a quiet, comfortable, discreet location. The building has its own car park with ample free parking.
