Identifying if you are choosing the right Counsellor, can be really difficult to do in an half hour consultation; even in a full fifty minute session this could be challenging. I offer a consultation/assessment over two sessions which allows enough space to a) share your concerns without feeling rushed and b) decide if I am the right Counsellor for you. Whatever you are feeling, it hasn't developed overnight, it is probably be hard to talk about and it might be the first time that you have shared this with someone else. A two session consultation gives you have the space to talk, work with and explore your concerns.

I am an Integrative counsellor, which means I use various methods to help you to gain a better understanding of your issues. My main focus is to help you to make whatever change in your life which you are seeking to make, through a better understanding of self. I am person-centred and the work is client lead.

Everyone needs support at some point in there lives. Sometimes people will need more support than friends and family can offer; sometimes it is good to have a space where you will not be judged, were you are free to talk about the things that are hard to talk about. If you have had counselling before or you are new to it, I can offer that space for you.
