I am a qualified humanistic integrative counsellor (FDSc MBACP). I can offer a free telephone consultation to give you the opportunity to tell me what it is you would like to see a counsellor for and to see if you feel I might be the right person to work with. I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and adhere to their ethical framework.
I am currently offering online counselling during the current pandemic, and will offer face to face and/or online when it is permitted.
Our work together is confidential, although I adhere to the BACP guideline of receiving monthly supervision.
Counselling affords you the time and space to contemplate what you are struggling with another human who is not connected to your day to day life. My training is in person centred integrative counselling, and I offer a compassionate, open minded and non-judgemental space. I will support you in looking at your life and circumstances from many angles, i.e. your upbringing, difficulties you have suffered and hopes you may have to overcome such things as low self esteem, anxiety, depression. We will work together to enable you to recognise how to move forward into living as you desire through developing new perspectives, maybe new boundaries and more confidence.
I have specialist training in bereavement and have a keen interest in existentialism, exploring the meaning of life itself. I am experienced in working with diversity, whether it be cultural, ethnic or sexual.
I work with teenagers through the ages to older adults.
A session is 50 minutes and the cost is £45.
I am able to offer a concessionary rate in some circumstances.
