COVID-19 UPDATE

TELEPHONE & SKYPE SESSIONS FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE

Please note that in these unprecedented times, I am still able to offer counselling via video link eg. Skype, FaceTime or by telephone. Clients are surprised about how well this works and some even say they feel more relaxed because they're in their home environment. Skype and FaceTime sessions are similar to face to face as we can still see each other on the screen. Telephone sessions are a little different but still offer a person the opportunity to talk about anything that is troubling them in a therapeutic way as long as the person has a quiet room or car that they can access for the session.

 

Counselling via video link or telephone is not new for me. I have always offered this service and a number of Students in a London University have accessed telephone and Skype counselling with myself and found it very successful as they didn’t have time to travel to see a Therapist. Generally I ask for payment by bank transfer in advance of the session. 

 

It's really important that you look after yourselves at this time and that includes your emotional health. 

 

If you want to make an appointment online or by phone then get in touch.

I work with both male and female clients on an individual basis and work with young people from the age of 15 years. I also work with couples as well as telephone/skype counselling.

 

Person Centred Counsellor

Working with Individuals and Couples

My practice offers a private and peaceful environment. This will allow you the necessary space to explore whatever is troubling you. Talking about feelings may feel extremely daunting, but person-centred counselling will enable you to discover an inner strength and understanding, which will make it easier to make decisions and to discover what you really want to achieve in life.

Some people feel completely trapped in their life situations and can’t see a way forward. The biggest step therefore, is admitting that you need help and my role is to work with you to discover your own way towards a brighter future.

The first session can often bring great relief. I feel that the counselling process can be compared to shaking a very old bottle full of sediment, which has lain dormant for many years thus disturbing the contents. This is the same with your problems. When you start talking about your feelings, you are able to release some of the suppressed emotions, that have perhaps been hidden for some time. 

I have a special interest in working with people who have been diagnosed with Cervical Dystonia.
