Counselling & Psychotherapy

Tel: 01223 526 932 Mob: 07946 549 321

Welcome

A very warm welcome if you are considering individual counselling or psychotherapy.

I am passionate about the healing power of counselling and psychotherapy, and believe in the capacity of the human spirit to heal, develop and grow.  This belief, coupled with my training and experience, underpins my clinical work.

If you are feeling emotional pain or distress, suffering from anxiety or depression, feeling stuck; finding yourself repeating patterns; feeling confused; lacking a sense of direction or needing an emotional sounding board, then counselling or psychotherapy can be life changing and enriching.

The process of counselling and therapy can help with many underlying causes of emotional pain; from helping to make sense of your feelings; healing emotional wounds of the past; helping to clarify your thoughts; to make sense of yourself and your place in the world to understanding how you relate to others and so much more.

I am experienced in working with anxiety; depression; grief; loss; illness and disease; and issues of sexuality.  I have a special interest in: trauma; psychophysiological disorders and the mind/body connection, especially how the body can be used as a tool to bring about change and healing. 

Counselling and psychotherapy sessions can either be face-to-face, video using (encrypted, free software) or by telephone.

About me

I have found from personal experiences that sharing difficulties and life experience with a trained professional, can help to get clarity and understanding about our lives, situations and feelings which can lead to making important decisions...

Pricing & Frequently Asked Questions

Contact me

What can I expect when I make contact?

The first contact by either telephone, email or text will give you a chance to ask me any questions you may have about my qualifications, experience and how I work. You will also be able to explain briefly what you would like help with.  It would be useful also to know if you want an evening or day time appointment.

I feel anxious about making contact – can you help?

Sometimes when you are experiencing difficult feelings and emotions, it can be very challenging to even think about making an initial contact.  This is very natural and if you prefer to email or text then that is ok. Making the initial contact and the first meeting is sometimes difficult but as a skilled therapist I will do my best to help to put you at ease, however, if you need support to get to an initial appointment please let me know.

What problems have you experience of working with?

Some of the problems I have helped with are:
addiction problems, anger, anxiety, bereavement, bullying in education or at work, confusion, cultural issues, debt, depression, eating disorders, family illness and carer issues, family problems including breakdown and divorce, identity issues, loneliness and isolation, low self-esteem, medical problems, panic attacks, psychophysiological disorders, physical disability, pregnancy and abortion, relationship problems, sexuality issues, situational crisis, trauma, suicidal feelings, surviving abuse, including sexual abuse, unemployment problems and work related stress.

How long will I need counselling or psychotherapy?

This is variable and is negotiated between us.  Counselling tends to be shorter term work and can be anything from six sessions to 20 sessions.  Many people start with six sessions and sometimes that is enough, or else it may be appropriate to continue. 

Some people come with a fixed idea about a certain number of sessions and others are happy to work open ended until they are ready to finish.  Whether short or long term, we will include regular review dates.

I have insurance cover, how do I proceed?

Your insurance company will provide you with an authorisation code along with the number of sessions you that been authorised; please supply this as soon as possible at the time of making an appointment or as soon as possible.

How much will it cost?

My fee is £55.00 for both the assessment and ongoing counselling or psychotherapy.   

What can I expect at the first meeting?

The first meeting is a two way process whereby I will be assessing your clinical need and we explore together what has led you to seek help; how your life is at the moment and what you would like to get from the counselling or therapy.  You will be discovering how I work and if you feel comfortable with me, further sessions can be booked. 

Do you have evening appointments available?

Yes, please contact me to discuss what day and time would suit you.
