Announcement icon I'm happy to speak to you on the phone or via Skype if you need someone to talk to, you can pay what you can afford via bank transfer.
Face to face meetings are now possible again, but it has been interesting using Zoom,Skype etc and more telephone sessions, it seems that it helps to ask what works best for each person, eg some people prefer the telephone as offers more "distance" and can feel safer to discuss very painful issues. First appt is £20, then I usually charge £40 for one hour whether for an individual or couples. I am happy to charge the same for two people as I don't see it as twice the work. I can also offer longer appointments if this would be easier as sometimes an hour can feel too short.
I have helped people explore and think about past events and people that may be contributing to their present difficulties, often the causes of feelings such as anxiety or sadness are buried in the past and may seem unconnected with how things are now, making those connections and putting difficult or painful memories behind us is usually very helpful
It seems that many of our issues as humans are related to how we see ourselves and relate to others, and especially how we can (or can’t) affect other people and events around us. This could be small personal interactions with friends family or strangers, or the bigger issues that affect us all like the lockdown, climate change, racism etc.
