Frequently Asked Questions
What types of problems can you help with?
When you're choosing a counsellor or life coach it's important to pick someone who has the specific skills and experience you require. Certain forms of therapy are very specialised and should not be attempted by someone who has not had adequate training in those areas. My areas of speciality include working with people who may experience:
Coaching for individuals and groups such as organisations, churches, volunteer groups, etc. is also available.
How can I book an appointment?
You are welcome to contact me either by phone (please leave a message and contact number if I'm unable to answer when you ring) or you can email me and request a call or email response. My contact details are listed under the 'contact ' tab.
Evening appointments are available.
What is your style of therapy?
I practice in a person centred and solution focused way. What is most important is to help you become 'unstuck' from the place that is currently causing you concern or worry. I also employ coaching techniques to help with both work and personal situations which involve specific strategies to help accomplish future goals or cope with a current situation.
As an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), I follow the BACP Code of Ethics.
I offer an initial one hour consultation for £20. This allow us the opportunity to meet each other, share your story or concern, find out what you hope to achieve and see if you believe we would be a good fit together. Subsequent sessions are charged at £40 per hour and I request 24 hours notice if a cancellation occurs.
The number of sessions is very individualised and will be discussed at the initial meeting.
