Me, Fees & FAQ's
A little about me...
Initially on my therapy journey, i qualified as a Complimentary Therapist in 1998. Gaining diplomas in Reflexology, Massage, Aromatherapy and Diet and Nutrition. Over the years I worked in a Spa on Cruise Ships, in nursing homes, in businesses and within the local community.
In 2001, i completed a further Diploma in Hypnotherapy and NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming). I went on to enjoy many years of working with clients to not only relax them physically with Complimentary Therapies but also now mentally using hypnotherapy and guided imagery. This allows me to work with the client on a subconscious level to release anxiety, fears, phobias and so much more.
In 2016 I completed a BSc hons degree in Humanistic/Integrative Counselling and Psychotherpy. This further training helped me to better understand the deeper level of the issues that people were presenting for in Hypnotherapy and gave a broader scope to my work.
As a member of the BACP, I follow an ethical framework, take regular Supervision with a qualified Supervisor and continually undertake further training to broaden my knowedge and skills.

What happens in Counselling?
Initial contact me by email or telephone,
Follow up telephone consultation lasting around 15-20 minutes (if required). This is for me to get more background and also for you to decide if I am the Counsellor for you.
Following that, I will send you a short contract that outlines our work together.
We will then arrange our first session. Our session should where possible be at the same day/time every week.
Initially we will arrange an introductory 6 sessions, after which we will do a review to see if you feel you require ongoing therapy, and then arrange a further 6 sessions.
How long will I need Counselling for?
That's really up to you, and it depends on what the reason is for having Counselling. We will have reviews at regular intervals, and when you are feeling better about your situation, we will work towards an ending.
If you feel that you are ready to make contact, please call me on 07938 537146 and leave me a message to call you back, or email me via the here. I look forward to hearing from you.
