Why Counselling?

Counselling offers a safe space where inner worries, long-term difficulties and ongoing issues are disclosed to a qualified professional.


Counselling is a therapeutic process which increases self-awareness throughout the exploration of how inner thoughts, feelings and behaviours affects your day to day life. It provides the opportunity to explore any issues within a confidential, non-judgmental environment.

Counselling can be very empowering in increasing self-esteem, facilitating inner connection and enhancing  self-awareness.

Counselling can be valuable in offloading from stress, in clarifying goals, in tackling repetitive unhelpful behavioural patterns in processing difficult life events and overwhelming feelings.

There are many personal reasons that bring people to counselling. There could be times when life is stressful and communication with others can become difficult. Sometimes separation, bereavement, loss, isolation, worries and sadness can be unbearable to manage. At other times, dissatisfaction, anger and frustration can lead towards a vicious circle of unhelpful coping mechanisms. Feeling anxious and worried over past and future events can become debilitating over time.

The sense of feeling stuck, frozen, numbed, withdraw, panicky and overly anxious could be an indication of past unresolved issues interfering with the quality of living.

How Counselling Works

Counselling usually takes place once a week and lasts 50 minutes. The first meeting aims to clarify what has brought you to counselling and what to expect from this process.  

In order for counselling to be fully effective it is beneficial for sessions to take place once a week. The duration of counselling is mutually agreed and tailored with your individual needs. I work either short-term and long-term.

I am available for weekly individual online, Skype, Zoom  and telephone counselling for either time limited or open ended work.

I offer 25 minutes of initial free phone or video consultation.

I charge £65.00 per session.
