About Psychotherapy & Counselling

Therapy offers a safe and supportive environment where you can explore past and present feelings, difficulties and fears. You will work towards living in a more satisfying  and resourceful way.

Who is it for?

Anyone who is motivated to change who may be:-

Unhappy, depressed or lacking confidence.

Suffering from anxiety, loneliness or difficulty forming rewarding relationships.

Having difficulty recovering from bereavement, loss or major life changes.

Experiencing difficulties in either personal or work relationships.        

Wanting to understand and work to change childhood related issues.

Experiencing  ongoing trauma as a result of earlier emotional, physical or sexual abuse.  

Experiencing isolation through religious or cultural difficulties.   

Seeking personal growth and  self expression.

I offer long term psychotherapy or short term counselling.

The Therapy Sessions

The initial session offers you the chance to think whether therapy will be a helpful and appropriate way forward for you.

Ongoing therapy sessions are for fifty minutes, once a week and normally at the same time. The length of therapy can be discussed. I offer an open ended basis, or a time limited long or short term basis.

Code of Ethics

I adhere to both the code of ethics of the Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling and British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) of which I am a Senior member.

The Cost

The fee for Psychotherapy or Counselling is £45. I offer reduced fees for people on low income and for psychotherapy and counselling students
