My counselling services
I provide private counselling therapy. My specialist subjects are grief and bereavement, anxiety, depression, stress, low self-esteem and anger.
Nowadayss most of my work is by Zoom. But if you live locally I will welcome you to my private office. You will find me empathetic and warm.
I have many clients in West Berkshire and many more across the UK and a few in Europe and further afield too.
All my counselling therapy is in a one-to-one basis – I do not do couples counselling. I do not work with children. I will work with members of the same family – but not at the same time.
All sessions are confidential.
Sessions are held in a secure environment.
Most of my work today is by video. I use Zoom, Google Meet or Skype. Video works well – but you do need to be in a room on your own, without interruption.
Most counsellors work to what is called the 50 minute hour. (50 minute sessions). I will give you close to an hour, sometimes we run over. I do not like to finish a session with you in an unhappy state.
My rates are £50 per session.
Many therapists will sign you up for six sessions – that is not my way of working. My aim is to get you better, if it takes 2 or 3 session – then that is great. Sessions will be weekly at first, then reduce to fortnightly as your life improves. Sometimes it only takes few sessions for you to be “on-your-way” other times clients want to go longer. It is not a problem. My goal is to see your life improve.
Do not be afraid or ashamed of crying. We are working with a raw emotion of the loss of someone very close to you.
Finding a therapist
Finding a therapist is not easy. Give me a call and we will arrange a 20 minute complimentary session. Understanding that we can work together is important.
