Areas of counselling I deal with


        My fee is £50 per session for individuals, I offer a concessionary rate to counselling students and those who are on low incomes – please contact me for further details.

        After the initial assessment if you feel that you are comfortable to work with me, fees are payable one week in advance.

        Further information

        If you are struggling to find meaning in life you may be feeling disconnected from yourself and/or those around you. This loss of contact with yourself, your needs, values and beliefs may decrease your trust in your ability to form and build meaningful relationships and achieve personal goals.

        A therapeutic relationship can offer the opportunity to find renewed belief in yourself and others. It can help to provide self-confidence and give you the skills to reach decisions with clarity. It can be a life enhancing and life changing process.

        Our work together is based upon trust, empathy, understanding and a willingness to accept you without reservation. I can provide you with the space for you to completely let go and explore your experiences at your own pace.

        I have trained in and practice the person-centred approach which is based on the theory and philosophy of Dr Carl Rogers. This approach best suits my professional practice as it is the client who leads the way in therapy and the counsellor helps to facilitate the process by which change occurs.
