I’m so pleased you are visiting my site and taking your first brave step towards seeking counselling support.
TYPE OF THERAPY
I can offer you a supportive approach, emphasising warmth and empathy as we work together to explore the concerns you have at this time. While there is no ‘quick fix’, talking to someone and gaining greater self-awareness in itself can bring tremendous relief and be therapeutically rewarding. In a world where human contact can be minimal, loneliness and isolation is often a consequence, so knowing you are significant and not alone can make a huge difference.
I have a background in social care, having spent many years supporting people with emotional, mental, physical and spiritual challenges. This has given me a non-judgmental understanding and care for people generally struggling with life’s uncertainties.
Having experienced personal family loss, I am sensitive to painful and difficult issues which we often face in life and provide a safe and confidential space for you to honestly express your concerns, no matter how impossible or awful they may seem to you.
I have helped clients with anxiety, stress, panic attacks, fears and phobias, relationship breakdowns, bereavement and loss (particularly pregnancy-related – miscarriage, termination, stillbirth, infertility), depression, suicidal tendencies, low self-esteem, anger and rejection. While this has been my experience, I am not limited to the above and welcome any issue you may be facing.
COST AND FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION
Our session would be for 50 minutes, and I offer long and short-term counselling at a charge of £40.00 per session, with a few concessions for students and low income families. Initially we would have a 15 minute free consultation on the phone, in order to discover whether we feel therapy together is the best option for you. As a registered member of the BACP, I follow their Ethical Guidelines by keeping your best interests in mind.
