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 sessions are by appointment.

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

I am offering both daytime and evening appointments, (subject to availablity).

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 would like to know something of my experience and qualifications, have a look at the counsellor page. Then if you are interested in having some sessions, we can arrange an assessment session; and then take it from there.

Have a look at my useful links page for further resources and support.

Therapy sessions by phone or by video calling

Using online counselling, (through Skype-like video calling), or therapy by phone, may not be something you have considered in the past. While these ways of working might not suit everybody, it could be a convenient way to access therapy from the comfort of your own home.

These days the difference between video calls, like (Skype or Zoom), and phone calls may seem blurred, but if you would like to ask about what might be most suitable for you, you are welcome to contact me to discuss this. Finding an appropriate way to work is the first important step.

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 one of 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 have 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.
