Frequently Asked Questions

What is counselling?

Counselling is a talking therapy which enables you to talk about your feelings and worries in a safe, confidential environment.

What can counselling help with?

Counselling can help with a multitude of issues from stress, anxiety and depression to boosting your self esteem. I am here to help you work through issues past and present.

Please remember that I am no trained to help people who are in crisis - There are people who are specifically trained to deal with crisis including NHS Crisis Team, Police & CAMHS.

How do your counselling sessions work?

I will travel to you in your own comfortable surroundings. I will do a graded exposure so that you can feel comfortable with me. I will listen with empathy, putting myself in your shoes. Together we will develop strategies to help you gain perspective, deal with the negative feelings and overcome your current issues.

How many sessions will I need?

Everyone is different, so there is no limit to sessions. Some people like weekly sessions, some like to check-in every few months and others may only need 1 session. It’s all on your terms and how you feel.

How much do sessions cost?

It’s so important to me that everyone can access support for their mental health, so by cutting out room costs, I can offer my sessions for £20 per hour. Rooms can be arranged for a small surcharge.
