The first step in any journey can often be the most difficult. You have now taken that first step.
Having counselling can be life changing and quite daunting, particularly if this is the first time. I believe the most important aspect of counselling is to establish a compassionate and supportive relationship with you based on trust and acceptance.
On our journey together we may simply talk, or choose to explore your journey more creatively, in the way that best enables you to move towards the power and strength within you.
As a Humanistic Integrative counsellor, I believe in the uniqueness of each individual, employing the approach that best suits your individuality and needs.
On your counselling journey, I will walk alongside you, as a trusted friend might, providing you with the support you need whilst helping you to find your own way. The pace and the destination of that journey being determined by your requirements and goals, at this time.
When you choose to take the first step on this journey with me, you will have the space and opportunity to talk openly about your feelings and experiences, in a safe and quiet environment where you will be truly heard and validated.
I offer an initial 30-minute consultation for £10; this is an opportunity for you to ask any questions and to discuss your needs and aims for counselling.
Thereafter sessions last a therapeutic hour of 50-60 minutes, and are most effective on a weekly basis.
If you choose to have an initial consultation the fee is £10, and thereafter each session costs £35
I offer a discount of £5 per session on block bookings of 4 or more sessions, when paid for in advance.
