A chance for you to be heard...
I appreciate that it can take courage to come and share your experiences so my aim is to make the process as rewarding as possible for you.
Sessions are held in my dedicated counselling room which has been described by my clients as 'welcoming' and 'calm'. Counselling can range from a short, solution-focused piece of work to longer-term psychotherapy. How we work together is dependent upon your needs and we will explore what may suit you best at our initial session.
Some of the positive changes that my clients have benefitted from include;

* Fees can often vary between counsellors and this can be due to a number of factors including;
Qualifications and experience - trainee counsellor or fully qualified, working towards accreditation status or with additional post qualifying specialisms. Location, daytime or evening sessions, overheads, length of session (a standard therapeutic hour is often 50 minutes).
If the counsellor is working on behalf of a registered charity or their practice is relatively new, this may also be reflected in their fees.
It is important that you feel able to talk openly in order to gain maximum benefit from sessions.
I work in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice and I will discuss confidentiality in full with you during our initial consultation.
