Counselling & Psychotherapy Services

Recognising that you could do with some support is the first step – its a strength in itself!

I know, to take the first steps towards  approaching any service such as this can be daunting, and worrying, often because people do not know what to expect or know what will happen towards making changes in their lives. You would have talked to other people about your concerns or counselling and or therapy in general.

Sometimes facing difficulties can feel distressing or frightening. But with a little courage and my support you really can begin to understand yourself and your difficulties with more clarity, recognise the things that are holding you back and explore different ways to make positive change happen.

Whether your problems are from the past, going on right now or impact upon your future, exploring the issues in a confidential place with an experienced, qualified counsellor can help to face challenges, make changes and move forward in the way that is right for you.

The options to fit in your life:

In a counselling and/or therapy session you’ll get:

    • 60 minutes of experienced professional care from a counsellor/therapist
    • A tailored therapeutic plan to fit your needs
    • Professional Experiences, Approach & Accountability to help you keep motivated
    • Helpful Tools to assure the therapeutic work continues after the appointment

My service might not be the right one for you, if any of the following is true:

    • You have thoughts of hurting yourself or others or when there’s continuing violence in the relationship if you are the cause of it.

    • You are under 16 or you are under the care of a legal guardian.
       
    • You are in an urgent crisis or an emergency.
       
    • You have been diagnosed with a severe mental illness, or if you have been advised to be in psychological supervision or psychiatric care.

    • You were required to undergo therapy or counselling either by a court order or by any other authority.
       
    • You do not have a device that can connect to the Internet or you do not have a reliable Internet connection.

What your first session will look like

This introductory session is in place to ensure you are well informed about the process and happy to commit to the therapeutic work. We can talk about why you are here and what you would like to get from counselling.

The session is your designated time.

You will be invited into conversations about any past experiences of counselling and any other help you would have received, what your current concerns are.

You are not going to be forced into talking about something you do not want to talk about or are not ready to talk about.

Whenever you’re ready, the counsellor therapist will be here to help you book counselling online quickly or you can do so via the booking form, at the times and prices that suit you.

This is important, as I want to provide you with a convenient, confidential and affordable access to a professionally qualified & accredited BACP therapist available anytime, anywhere.

Before we meet, it might be very useful to put together a list of some of the things that are concerning you and what you need help with so we can talk about it during this first session. I can provide a copy of an assessment form for you to jot down these before the first therapy session.

We will also agree on the goals of our work together and the number of sessions you would like to have in the first instance.
