Counselling Service

Counselling offers an environment in which you can express your feelings and gain deeper insight into any difficulties you might be experiencing.   Counselling is confidential and non-judgemental and offers a space where your thoughts and feelings are heard and acknowledged.


It is important to recognise that we are all very different and there are a broad range of situations and experiences that can cause us emotional distress.  No matter what the cause, emotional pain can feel highly debilitating but talking through concerns with a counsellor can help you develop a better understanding of yourself, your thoughts and behaviours.  With this understanding, you can begin to make positive changes which can relieve you of feelings that might otherwise be overwhelming.

I offer short-term counselling, between 8-20 sessions with a focus on a particular difficulty or concern, or open-ended to enable exploration of deep-rooted feelings and past experiences that can affect how we deal with things in the present.  I begin with an initial assessment which determines whether the counselling I offer is appropriate to your needs and also for you to decide if you would like to work with me.  

I offer face-to-face, or online counselling (daytime and evening sessions subject to availability).  


Initial assessment (1 hour 15 mins)  £60

Counselling session (50 mins)          £60

I do not offer a crisis service or emergency response.  In the event of an emergency please contact NHS direct telephone 111, your GP, the emergency services or the Samaritans freephone 116 123.
