The Counselling Services


Below is some information about the counselling services. If you have a specific query, please feel welcome to call 079 6459 3035 or email. All visits are by appointment.

I work with both individuals and couples over the age of eighteen. Usually, individuals have regular weekly sessions; and couples either weekly or fortnightly.

As well as daytime appointments, early morning or evening appointments are possible, as available, for those unable to come along during nine-to-five hours.

Taking the view that we are all unique individuals with different needs, there is no set number of counselling sessions. You may wish to have just a few sessions with a particular focus or goal. However, there is also the opportunity for longer term therapy, allowing you to be able to work at further depth and explore more complex issues.

If you are unable to travel to the premises, you may also consider telephone counselling.

Path disappearing into the woods


Counselling through health insurance schemes

I am also registered to provide counselling through health insurance companies including BUPA, Aviva Health, PruHealth and Cigna. Please ask, if you would like to be seen through these insurance schemes.


Clinical supervision

I am experienced in supervision, including several years in the NHS, using a psychodynamic approach. How often you may need to come along for supervision may vary according to your own experience as a counsellor, and the size of your caseload. The BACP says that there needs to be a minimum of one and a half hours /month supervision for qualified counsellors; and more for trainees. I can offer weekly or fortnightly supervision.


Counselling premises in Stroud

There are two private parking spaces in front of the building which can be used by clients. The consulting room is on the first floor. However, disabled clients can be seen downstairs by prior arrangement, so please ask about this.

Buses, 8, 63 and 63a, stop within a few yards of the premises in Stratford Road, (either Stroud College or Beard's Lane bus stops). Stroud Railway Station is about 15 minutes walk away.
