Through private one hour counselling sessions either face to face or online I can provide you with a safe, calm space to begin to explore what you are finding difficult. Together, we can look at what changes you would like to make and how to make them. You will be able to learn new skills and new ways of navigating life’s challenges.
I appreciate that the thought of taking that first step into the unknown and trying to explain to me what is going on when you don’t always understand it yourself can seem daunting.
I am patient and non-judgemental and will guide you through the process.
£55 per session
Many of my clients find it more convenient and cost effective to pre-pay and pre-schedule a block of six counselling sessions. Additional sessions and blocks of sessions can also be purchased.
After you have contacted me via email I will email you to arrange a convenient time to call or I can answer any questions you may have via email. If you decide to book you can do so via phone or email. Whichever you choose I will send you some additional information and a form to complete via email and then your booking confirmation. When you get in touch you are welcome to ask me any questions you may have and take time to consider whether or not you feel that I may be the right counsellor for you. If you have contacted me by telephone and I am unable to answer please leave a short message and I will return your call as soon as I am able.
If you have never attended counselling before it can be really helpful to understand a little more about what it is. Counselling is a talking therapy where you will have the opportunity to talk about your difficulties, thoughts and feelings in a safe and confidential environment. I will gently encourage you to talk about how you are feeling and what you would like to change in your life. Together we can explore how to help you move forward. My approach to counselling is flexible and based on what you feel ready and able to work on.
The number of sessions needed varies from person to person and can be difficult to predict. Counselling is a process and in most instances a number of sessions is needed. I am able to offer short term counselling of approximately six sessions and longer term counselling. If you are attending longer term counselling we will always review how you feel you are progressing every six sessions. This review is also an opportunity to reflect upon how long you may wish to continue attending counselling sessions.When you choose to work with a me there is no limit to the number of sessions you can attend.
Counselling takes time and commitment and is most effective when you attend regularly. For you to be able to make the most of our time together your sessions should ideally be weekly or fortnightly. As our work together progresses and we are working towards bringing the sessions to an end you may wish to attend less regularly.
