It may have taken you a while to come to the decision to start counselling. It can feel like a big first step and I am glad you have decided to take a look at my counselling practice.
As your counsellor, I believe our relationship is an important factor in the work we do together. This 'therapeutic relationship' is unlike no other and I provide you with a safe and confidential space to explore the issues you bring.
I am a Humanistic integrative counsellor, which means I use a variety of approaches and modalities, including Person Centred therapy, Solution Focused techniques and I also draw on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT techniques) & Transitional Analysis.
Initial assessments with me are usually 50-60 minutes long and thereafter counselling sessions 50 minutes.
Sessions are usually each week or fortnightly.
We can work together, face to face, over the telephone or by video link such as zoom.
I work with men & women who come to counselling looking for support on a range of difficulties. I also work with couples as a relationship counsellor.
If you are a trainee counsellor looking for support, I may be able to offer you the counselling space you need.
As well as working with clients who contact me direct, I take referrals from employers from a range of UK companies.
Work stress/relational issues can be difficult to manage and you may benefit from a space to talk. I am committed to helping you move forward.
I have a wealth of experience and have gained experience as a counsellor in private practice, within a charity and as a school counsellor.
Whether you are experiencing difficulties at work or in your personal life, I can offer you a space.
While you take your time to 'unravel' the things you are struggling with, together we can explore some of the underlying issues behind these difficulties.
Caring for yourself is not a luxury.
Counselling offers YOU the time to look at yourself, at relationships with others, at situations and past or present events and issues causing you discomfort. Counselling can for many reasons help you move forward in your life.
