I provide a calm, professional space to air your anxieties and explore your feelings, or goals; to be heard without judgement, to be yourself. You are safe to explore your stuck points and slowly begin to piece together your wholeness, worthiness and resilience once again..
I am member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am bound by the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice and I receive regular individual supervision for my work.
I am qualified in the Person-Centred Approach which fits my own philosophy. At its very core, Person-Centred counselling believes that each and every person can and will, become a more ‘fully functioning’ person if given the correct conditions. The underpinning principles are on the counsellor being honest, non-judgmental and fully accepting whilst being fully integrated in the relationship, allowing the client to lead and set the pace. I aim to offer these conditions as best as I can during our relationship.
I have previously been involved for the Night Stop Charity in Widnes and presently working for St. Luke’s Hospice. As well as counselling, I am a Mindfulness meditation practitioner and facilitator of Self Development thereby offering my knowledge and professionalism to what matches my clients needs.
It is important in counselling that you feel comfortable to talk me and that I as your counsellor feel I am the best person to address your specific needs; so we arrange a time by telephone or email for a free 20 minute, no obligation consultation prior to therapy beginning. Get in touch via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or Monday to Friday working hours to arrange your free consultation.
I could help you with:
- Life Changes
- Relationship Issues/break ups
- Low Self Esteem
My counselling sessions are held in person on zoom or telephone. Do get in touch to arrange a time for our free 20 minute no obligation consultation.
Telephone counselling can be a preference for people who prefer not to engage online or prefer not to be seen. There are limitations and benefits to this. Communication is limited to interpretation of listening only and being unable to see a persons gestures and expressions can lead to misinformation. However, some prefer the anonymity of this.
What is online counselling?
Online counselling is a way for you to engage in counselling using internet technology such as Zoom. You direct your counselling by selecting the method of communication you feel most comfortable with. You choose the time, the place and the pace of your counselling to suit your needs.
How it works
Zoom is a way for you to see your counsellor face to face from your computer whilst engaging in therapy. Should you choose Zoom counselling, you will be guided through a simple set up. We will meet on Zoom at a time that you have previously arranged. Sessions are 50 minutes in length. Being able to see your counsellor gives you more of the benefits you get from face-face counselling but with the convenience of online therapy. By talking you hear tone of voice which is a way to convey empathy and by video you see non-verbal communications such as facial expressions that can allow the relationship to become more
Online counselling offers certain benefits but there are also limitations that are worth bearing in mind when deciding which type of therapy will best suit your needs.
