Counselling

A Safe, Positive and Flexible Counselling Experience

Safe                                                                                                                                                                   As a qualified, experienced and accredited counsellor, committed to working within the  BACP’s Ethical Framework you can be assured that your welfare will be my primary concern during our work together.  I receive my own regular supervision to help guide me in best practice and I regularly update my skills and knowledge with training so as to be able to work effectively with a wide range of issues. I hold regular reviews with my clients to disuss their experience of the counselling, and use  counselling outcome measures to help ensure clients are benefiting from the counselling.

Positive                                                                                                                                                            Each of my clients is a unique, resourceful person with whom it is a privilege to work. My aim is to provide a warm, encouraging and non-judgemental space in which we can work collaboratively together. Some of the counselling models that I draw upon encourage a positive mind-set and a positive relationship with ourselves; these include – Compassion Focussed Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Positive Psychology and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Some clients positive experiences of counselling can be seen on the Testimonials page of this website.

Flexible                                                                                                                                                            Because each client’s counselling needs are different, the frequency of sessions can vary – for example weekly, 2-weekly or at varying intervals depending upon circumstances (some clients spread out sessions more when things start to improve). This can also help spread the cost of counselling. Many clients find that they achieve their counselling goals within 6 sessions, whilst some require a few more (but usually less than 12 sessions in total).
