Life throws us a lot of challenges…..sometimes these come as a crisis, perhaps suddenly and unexpected, sometimes they are ongoing and simmering, but gnaw away at us over weeks or years.   I offer a safe space and a non- judgemental, non -directive approach so we can find solutions in the way that suits you, the client, best, and helps you most.  Together we work through the issues, exploring, understanding and finding a way forward.  The counselling sessions I offer can be either short or long term, depending on your needs and wishes, but are a very effective way of improving  self -understanding and gaining the strength to make appropriate decisions and take meaningful action. Seeing clearly, through our exploration together, can help you cope better with specific crisis issues as well as with all aspects of life and the diverse problems that can overwhelm us all.

 MY WAY OF WORKING

I work with you, as an individual, in a person centred approach. My method of counselling is client led, according to needs, wishes and response. This may include psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural or humanistic methods of counselling.  The best counselling method is the one that brings progress, understanding and relief.

I welcome individuals, adults, adolescents, couples and work by telephone, using Skype or Face Time or by e mail.

All sessions are 55 minutes. Please phone or e mail to arrange. Payments is 40E per session (indivuals or couples) payable in cash or cheque at the start of each session or via bank credit/cheque in advance for distance work (Skype, telephone etc)

I subscribe to code of ethics of UKCP and BACP. Confidentiality is, of course, always assured.
