What to expect?
You can expect a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space where you can simply be who you are and where you can share your thoughts and emotions without fear.
The goal of any talking therapy is your increased self-awareness, skill acquisition and independence.
The first session will consist of an assessment. This will inform my ability to work with you and help you decide if I am the right counsellor for you.
The sessions will employ a range of techniques to suit your circumstances. Please refer to the page entitled how I work for further information about the counselling approaches that I use.
Sessions will last 50 minutes in length, in a suitable private setting.
I offer a professional and confidential service where you can talk about any issue. There are certain legal exceptions that will be clarified on your first session and prior to the establishment of any agreement for working.
As a BACP member I attend regular supervision in which I discuss my work for consultative support and professional guidance.
. Sessions costs £50 (UK) €50 (PT) per session lasting 50 minutes each.
. Reduced rates available for those on low income (off-peak sessions). Contact me for more information
