ABOUT COUNSELLING

Counselling is one of the talking therapies where you can share your distress and gives us an opportunity to reflect together on the difficulties you are experiencing. Counselling can offer you the potential to be creative in finding new ways of relating which involves change. This may be challenging but can ultimately lead to a more satisfying life. The sessions also offer an opportunity to reflect on how past relationships and experiences have affected your present problems.

I see my role as trying to understand things from your perspective. To this end, I try to offer a space in which we can work together to build up a relationship of trust to allow you to ventilate any thoughts or feelings. The sessions, which can be short-term or open-ended, are non-judgemental and confidential.

At the first appointment I will ask you to tell me about yourself, and the worries you are experiencing. This session will give us an opportunity to decide whether we can work together and whether you feel my approach to counselling meets your needs. If you decide to continue working with me, we will agree on a time to meet weekly. These sessions will be 50 minutes long. The pace of the work will be determined by you.

My Fees.

My fee is 40 per session. An initial assessment is 30. I offer reduced fees for students and to those for whom the fee would be unaffordable.
