There are many reasons why we may wish to seek counselling. My aim as a Person-Centred counsellor is to provide the right conditions to allow a client to safely explore whatever it is they wish to explore without judgement or rejection, as I strongly believe that we all have the innate ability to find our own answers to the problems in our lives when given the right support. I am committed to providing that support for a client through times of difficulty and I work with an ethos of being 'with' them on their journey. I always work at understanding a client's situation from their point of view and without judgement, allowing them to explore and express as much as they feel safe doing.
Together we can hopefully create a relationship where a client comes to trust and access their inner resources and innate strength, helping them understand themselves more openly and freely, to make the positive changes they wish to and allowing them to live a more satisfying and happy life.
The problems counselling can help with are, but not limited to:
Anxiety and/or Stress, Dealing with changes of circumstance (e.g. Illness, Retirement, Moving house) Negative Self-esteem, Depression and/or Suicidal thoughts, Isolation and loneliness, Understanding or coming to terms with loss (e.g. Bereavement or Divorce), Drug and Alcohol problems, Sexual abuse and/or sexual related issues, Relationship difficulties and working with emotions concerning Climate Change.
My fee is £50 per session for individuals, £65 for couples and £40 for on line, however if you are unemployed, a student or on welfare, I am happy to negotiate a fee to suit you better.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding myself or my practise or to make a booking. I offer a free 20 minute telephone assessment so see if we wish to work together.
