I counsel both adults and young people from the age of 16 on an individual basis and this can be short term for a few weeks or for a longer period of time.  I believe that if we regularly review our work together we can look at goals you may hope to achieve and can assess how we are progressing.  I offer the first 50 minute appointment for the reduced price of £20.00 so that we can meet to discuss what you are looking for and if I can offer that.

I trained as an integrative counsellor which means that I use skills from different approaches to suit your individual needs.

The main three theories I use are person-centred, psychodynamic and existentialism

There may be occasions where we can work in a slightly different way.  For example, this might involve using stones or shells, writing things down or using drawings.  Working this way would only happen if it were an area you felt comfortable with and we would talk this through beforehand.

 

My time as a counsellor has led me to work with a wide spectrum of issues.  These include:

Loss, bereavement and grief

Relationship difficulties at home, work or socially

Personal growth and development

Anxiety

Depression

Family issues

Abuse - sexual, psychological and physical

Self esteem and confidence

Self harm

Please note, I do not offer couples counselling.
