About me

If you are feeling overwhelmed, anxious, stressed or depressed I can help. If these feelings don't apply to you please continue reading as I can help with a range of other issues too.  Often people just need a private space. The time to explore their thoughts and feelings. An opportunity to express themselves without being judged. I can provide a safe, welcoming environment where I can support you to work through your troubles which will enable you to make changes so that you can live and enjoy a more fulfilled life.

I am a qualified Gestalt Counsellor. Gestalt is a humanistic/existential therapy which focuses on our individual experiences and how we relate to others and our environment

How counselling can help

People can become stuck in fixed patterns and beliefs about themselves, their relationships and the world around them. My aim is to help you find new and more creative ways to resolve the problems you are facing.

The benefits of Gestalt counselling

  • Substantial increase in self-awareness and self-acceptance
  • Improved ability to live fully in the present moment
  • Improved communication skills
  • Better and more satisfying relationships with others
  • A greater understanding of your behaviours and the meaning you attach to them

Taking the first steps

Step 1: Get in touch with me either via email, phone or through my website.

Step 2: We can then arrange a free 30-minute consultation, either face to face, on the phone or via an online video call, during this time we can talk about the problems you are facing, what you are hoping to get out of counselling and how I can best support you. This time gives you an opportunity to ask any questions you may have.

Step 3: If we decide to go ahead with counselling we will arrange our first session to suit you; I can offer evenings, weekends and daytime appointments. Generally, we will meet on the same day, at the same time, each week.

Step 4: We may work either short term for 6 -12 sessions, or longer term. Either way, we will consider your needs together and agree on your priorities and timescales.

What you can expect from our first counselling session

Initially, I will share my working agreement with you; this explains the way in which I work, my cancellation policy and confidentiality details.  After this, the time is yours to talk about what brings you to counselling.  At the end of the first session, I usually summarise what you have said and we can then decide a plan for further sessions.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
