About counselling


 

There are many different ways of describing counselling and psychotherapy but all have in common the idea that it is helpful to find a supportive relationship outside your immediate circle of family or friends. 

 

Specific issues that can be addressed include:

Anxiety Panic attacks Trauma Abuse
Depression Low self esteem Relationships Loneliness
Bereavement Anger Bullying Work issues
Sexuality Addictions Eating disorders Phobias


However, many people come with a more general sense that something feels empty or 'not right' in their day to day lives. 

 

I am an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist. In practice this means that I work in a flexible way, drawing on a wide range of therapeutic approaches based on your particular needs. I am happy to see clients for both short term counselling, often focused on one particular difficulty, and for psychotherapy where a longer timescale allows for deeper engagement. 

 

To begin, I will usually suggest an introductory session, where we can meet each other, look at any questions you may have and discuss what you are seeking from counselling. If you decide you would like to continue, we will agree a regular, weekly appointment time. Counselling sessions last for 50 minutes, and cost £40 (including introductory session). Concessions are available.
