I am a qualified, Registered and Accredited* member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I offer counselling to adults, young people and children.
Working with adults, I offer a free of charge 20 minute consultation at the beginning of our first session to see if we feel that Counselling with me would be for you. (See below for Child and Young people counselling)
Working with young people and children, I will arrange to meet for a Parent Assessment (see rates below) so that we can assess your childs needs and I can gain some family history. You can also see if I maybe the right person for your child.
Why come to counselling?
Ultimately, you could be feeling sad, unhappy, unfulfilled, angry, confused, perhaps holding negative thoughts and feelings that you want to change.
There are many reasons why people come to counselling, you may feel:
That you need to make sense of how your feeling
You want to talk to someone who isn’t involved, like family and friends
You need to come to terms with something
You are having relationship issues
You want to make a decision
Are feeling that life is too much
That there is always something stopping you achieve what you want That you can no longer carry around something from the past
You cannot cope with a loss or illness
You want to talk with someone who isn’t going to judge you
I offer a professional, confidential, caring, non judgemental and supportive approach. If you are unsure if counselling is for you, please feel free to contact me.
* This means that the therapist has achieved a substantial level of training and experience that has been approved by BACP.
I receive work from insurance companies, Children's Services, Schools and EAP's.
