My role as your counsellor is to enable you to explore thoughts and feelings that may not have been spoken about before.
This can feel daunting and upsetting but it can also bring a sense of relief and understanding which can provide a way of moving forward. I offer a confidential, warm, safe, and non- judgmental environment.
I offer both long term counselling, if you wish to explore deeper aspects of yourself, or short term counselling, if you wish to focus on a particular issue. Counselling normally takes place once a week, sessions last for one hour, everyone’s counselling needs are different, some people benefit from just a few sessions while others continue for longer.
After an initial meeting if you are happy to go ahead with the sessions we will make an agreed contract, this will out line limits to confidentiality, time, Day, cancellations, holidays, fees. If for any reason we feel we are not able to work with each other, I will do my best to help you find suitable support if you so wish.
For your peace of mind I have an up to date enhanced CRB check.
