Therapeutic counselling

Life often finds a way to 'knock us sideways'. Consequently, our emotional well being and mental health can suffer. Whatever the reason you are seeking help, I counsel men and women and offer understanding, respect and empathy. In our sessions together you have a confidential and safe space to explore your situation and feelings.

I am by nature a good listener, compassionate and non-judgemental. It is very important that you feel supported, heard and understood.

Face to face, phone or online counselling

I offer face to face, phone or online counselling. Traditionally, counselling sessions have been done face to face. But with our lives becoming more hectic and issues around the coronavirus pandemic, more and more people are looking to remote forms of therapy. Please let me know your preference when making initial contact.

Our initial counselling session together

The first session is a great opportunity to discuss the therapeutic process. We'll look at how we work together - things like appointment times, how frequently you would like sessions, fees and confidentiality. I'd like to hear about what has brought you to counselling and we'll be looking at what you want to achieve from further sessions.

Professional counselling services

Being a counselling professional I am a registered member of the BACP. My approach is Person-Centred. I work individually with clients, have a down to earth style and like to keep sessions jargon-free.

Relationship counselling

We all have our unique story and experiences. Additionally, I have often found themes come up in the therapy room that may have affected many of us at one point or another - for example, issues around anxiety, depression, loss, bereavement, loneliness, work, health, self-esteem, relationships etc.. Relationship issues often are a reoccurring theme. This could be the relationship we have with ourselves, our partner or the relationship we have with family members, money, alcohol, work, sex, food, authority etc..

I work individually with adult clients (i.e. 18+) and currently do not offer couples counselling.

Counselling services for students

If you are a student and you are looking for a counsellor I offer a student rate. Please note I work with adult clients i.e. 18+ .
