FLEXIBLE EVENING AND DAYTIME ONLINE APPOINTMENTS
Counselling can give you the time to focus on you. I am here to help you explore your thoughts and feelings, in a warm and empathetic space, without judgement. This time can give much needed clarity and a place to talk honestly, away from our lives.
Relationship counselling can provide a safe space to explore and voice difficulties you may be experiencing as a couple. Often, effective communication has broken down, counselling can work towards restoring this connection.
I am a qualified counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), based near Epsom in Surrey. I work with a wide range of issues including low self esteem, anxiety and depression, relationship problems, bereavement, redundancy and stress at work. I am experienced in working on both a short term and long term basis.
As well as running my private practice, I am based at Sutton Women's Centre and Step by Step.
I am predominantly working using a Person Centred or Existential approach. I believe you are the expert of your own life and so you will naturally find the pace and agenda that most benefits you.
"Overcoming difficulties leads to courage, self-respect and knowing yourself".
Alfred Adler, Psychotherapist
In the first session, we will discuss what has brought you to counselling and how this can best be approached. I always try to adjust my approach according to the client's needs. It is my priority to help you feel as comfortable as possible, adopting a pace that is right for you.
Sessions last for 1 hour.
Individual sessions cost £50, couples £60.
I do listen a lot! I believe that one of the things that makes counselling so special is that we are truly heard. It can be interesting to observe in everyday conversations how much we actually hear each other. However, I do talk too. I am here to help you explore your thoughts and feelings.
We will regularly review together our work and it is completely up to you how long you would like to have sessions for. I am happy to work both long term and short term.
Due to Covid all sessions are currently online using Skype or Zoom.
