How I work

I create a safe & confidential space where people can come when they are struggling with something, or have a particular issue that they are uncertain about..... I don’t have answers or advice, but what I can do is listen in a very particular way. and in that listening and that reflecting back, I have noticed, something happens. People get in touch with their inner resources and the answers and the way forward can emerge. People develop and grow. As Carl Rogers the founder of the Person-Centred approach said:

‘In my early professional years I was asking the question: How can I treat, or cure, or change this person? Now I would phrase the question in this way: How can I provide a relationship which this person may use for his (or her) own personal growth?’

Where/when do we meet?

After the initial contact (my phone or email), I will usually arrange to meet with you for a first session in which we can decide if we wish to work together. My counselling practice is based in my own home where I have a dedicated counselling room. I do also, however, offer counselling sessions over the phone where this is appropriate or required.

Sessions are usually weekly (or can be fortnightly) for one hour per week at a mutually convenient time agreed by ourselves. I practice Mondays to Fridays during the daytime. I also offer evening sessions.
