Counselling

        

I am a qualified counsellor and over my four-year training I studied a variety of therapeutic approaches, which enables me to work in the best way for each individual client, depending on their needs. 

 

As a counsellor I am committed to offering you personal support, honesty and respect; and within that atmosphere you have the opportunity to talk and be heard.

 

The therapy I offer provides you with a confidential space in which you can explore any aspect of your life.  In sharing and examining your thoughts, feelings and experiences, new perspectives and more understanding begin to emerge.

 

With a warm and very personal approach, my intent is to help you see where you have choices in your life, and to help you develop the inner resources to deal with any problems or feelings, whatever the cause.

 

I hold a current DBS check, I am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy), and I undertake regular supervision for my work and continue my personal & professional development.

 

Over the years, clients have brought many different topics to counselling: stress & anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, relationship difficulties, transitions & bereavement to name a few.  But whatever the issue, I am passionate about helping you find a way forward, and enabling you to develop the skills to meet & deal with whatever challenges life brings.

 

Normally I see clients face to face, and I am happy to do this with 2m between us.  However, in this current climate to ensure safety & social distancing, I also work online via video calling.

 

The first appointment will be an opportunity to find out what you need, and to see if you feel comfortable talking to me.  If you decide you would like to continue, we can discuss how to proceed and what that entails.  I can usually arrange to see you for a first appointment within 7 days, and I can offer daytime and evening sessions. I also accept referrals from GP’s, other health professionals, employers and Employee Assistance Programmes.
