Something brought you here to this page today....
Maybe you feel you need someone to talk to about what it is you are experiencing and feeling.
Someone who is going to be there to support you and work closely alongside you to help make sense of it all.
Maybe you are unsure what is going on for you right now, but you just know you need help.....
When we experience life's difficulties it can be overwhelming and hard to find the answers to our problems.Through counselling therapy I will offer you the help and support you need to make connections and gain understanding that can lead you to live your life in a more full and positive way.
Whatever pain or distress you are feeling right now, counselling therapy can be a break through step forward on the path to helping yourself and healing.
I work as an Integrative therapist.This means I work with several kinds of counselling. One size doesn't fit all, and what may work for one person might not for another.
So working with you we can explore your unique situation and find ways to proceed together.
Counselling gives you the space to talk safely and openly in a way you might not have experienced before with friends or family.I will work closely with you with what ever you bring and explore different perspectives to help you gain new awareness and understanding.
I work with the whole of you as a person - mind, body, soul, and emotions . So for example , a sense of numbness or disconnection in any part of you, can be useful to explore as it can be an indicator about what is going on for you and how and why you may be experiencing difficulties.
I also offer to work with spirituality and look at what this might mean for you. I can invite you to work with imagery , pictures , dream work and objects to help you to explore through transpersonal work together and connection to your inner voice.
( sometimes called soul, gut feeling or 6th sense).
Working with our 'inner knowing' and the transpersonal can gain us deeper insight and connection to our purpose and needs.
Quite often people report that after counselling they feel a better understanding of what has been going on for them. It can be like when you have one of those 'Aha!' moments and discover something for yourself for the first time and everything falls into place and makes sense.
This often leads to feeling empowered and a feeling of enrichment and joy in life again. It can give us a clearer road map of something to work towards day to day and for the future.
You'll receive the help and support you need as you find your answers, that can leave you feeling more in control of your life and improved wellbeing.
When we first make contact , we can talk about what it is you would like to get from your counselling. This may not be immediately clear for you. We can discuss whatever you bring and choose what you would like to set as your focus for the work together. If you feel that what I have to offer is a good fit ,then please give me a call so we can arrange an initial session.
There are three options I can offer. I would usually offer face to face sessions, however as a result of COVID guidelines I apologise as I am unable to at this time.
However please express you interest so I can inform you when I return to face to face working.
Working by ZOOM *(face to face by video ) or video apps i.e. Watts App, enables you to have your session in the comfort of your own home or place of your choosing and is a very popular choice due to the convenience.
Another popular option is by telephone *, again allowing you the freedom of attending your session from a place of your choosing.
* (There are guidelines which we can discuss to ensure the confidentiality of your space you choose , i.e. being overheard or interrupted, as your safety and welfare is paramount.
Your initial session is £20 for one hour.
Fees are £40 per session thereafter.
Payments are to be made by BACS transfer 24hrs in advance of the session to confirm your booking.
I offer a concession to student counsellors in training of £30 per session.
