I help tackle…
The limiting effects of historical or current trauma including PTSD, physical, emotional, spiritual and sexual abuse, addiction, eating disorders, anxiety disorders, suicide and traumatic bereavement, relationship breakdown, loss of job or health, low self-confidence, mental health recovery, identity crises, relationship difficulties and second-generation migrant issues. Boarding School Syndrome and caring for a relative with mental illness or Aspergers are areas of special interest for me.
Have you lost someone close to you?
Supporting adults and children through bereavement is something in which I have specialist experience and training.
Are you suffering with depression, anxiety or panic attacks?
I have experience and training in managing these and other mental-health issues and helping to heal root causes.
Are you a trainee counsellor or student?
I understand your pressures and can offer you a concessionary rate in order to help fulfil your required counselling hours.
Are you a parent?
As a parent and qualified teacher trained in brain development… I can both empathise with your issues and offer constructive responses.
Are you an employee in the statutory and voluntary sector?
As a former Education Professional, Social Services Administrator, Training Coordinator, charity sector employee and career-changer, I can relate to the workplace challenges you may be facing.
Are you juggling caring for ill relatives with work and domestic obligations?
Again this is something of which I have personal experience: Counselling is a way of giving yourself the space and time to be an effective carer of others and the opportunity to consider honestly, the impact of the demands this puts upon yourself.
Individuals and Couples
My average fee is £35 for Individuals (50 minutes) and £45 for Couples (60 minutes). The Initial Assessment Consultation is £40 for one hour. I have a flexible payment structure depending on household income with the rate to be agreed at the first session.
Please contact me by telephone or email to discuss your requirements.
I offer concessionary rates to full-time students, counselling trainees and clients who are unwaged. Concessionary rate appointments are likely to take place during the day rather than evenings or weekends.
