I am a qualified integrative, therapeutic counsellor based in Worcester. I am a registered member of the British Association for counselling and psychotherapy (BACP) this means that I adhere to their ethical framework and codes of practice.
I have a background in Psychology and worked for the NHS before qualifying as a counsellor. I have worked in research and education and in different counselling environments with a range of clients in addition to working in private practice and working for EAP providers.
Counselling can help you to gain clarity about your feelings and to make sense of difficulties, improve your health and well being and develop new ways of coping.
It can be difficult to reach out for support when we are going through a rough time in our lives. I believe that counselling provides a space to explore the experiences that are causing us difficulties and that sometimes we need support to enable us to more forward.
If you choose to make an appointment, there will be a confidential space for you. I believe in creating a trusting relationship that will provide a safe space in which I hope you will feel accepted and understood. Together we can work to help gain a better understanding of your thoughts and feelings in a non judgmental space. I value providing a safe, reflective counselling space where you can be heard, understood and where your needs are met.
I work with anxiety, bereavement, relationship issues including GSRD, separation, divorce, loss, depression, trauma, abuse, suicidal thoughts or any difficulty you need to bring. Counselling is about you and what you need at this time.
If you have any questions about counselling and how I may be able to help you please do get in touch.
You may choose to book an initial assessment to see if you feel that we could work together, this is £25 for 30 mins. If you have already decided you would like to work with me, you can book an hour session. All subsequent sessions are charged at a standard fee of £40 for 55 mins and are payable in advance.
In line with government and NHS guidelines during this period of social distancing and In order to minimise the risk, for you and your families, I have had to stop all face to face sessions and temporarily move to a phone, zoom or whatapp service so that I can continue to be available for my clients.
To book an appointment you can contact me via the website, email, text or phone, whatever feels right for you. I aim to get back to you as soon as possible, usually the same day. Flexible appointments can be made to suit you.
If I am unable to answer my phone please leave a voice message or text me and I will get back to you
