"The longest journey begins with a single step"
Care Counselling Now
I have been working in the care industry for 15 years offering support to clients with varying difficulties. I have gained a lot of experience in these years working with diverse clients who have presented, amongst other things, with stress, anxiety, anger, low self esteem, relationship problems, and addictions.
I am a qualified counsellor and registered with the BACP. My main area of expertise is to work with clients who have had a drug and or alcohol problem or those already in recovery. I can also support family members or loved ones who are struggling to cope with someone's addiction and don't know which way to turn.
Change the way you think to change the way you feel
Need help to achieve your goals in life? I use an array of communication skills to provide coaching services that give you the tools for success. In addition to 1-on-1 consultations and group sessions, I regularly host workshops and seminars for people who are interested in developing their own coaching techniques.
My training is based on the person centred approach but as I have discovered, one size does not necessarily fit all, so I tailor my approach to fit the client and what their needs are.
I am a registered member of the BACP and work to their Code of Ethics.
Client confidentiality and the need for the client to feel safe and develop trust are key to being able to work together.
As part of my ongoing development I have supervision and I also attend workshops to enhance my knowledge and skills.
Location and Cost
I am based in Berkhamsted but I also work from Amersham where I conduct my sessions.
You are welcome to either phone or email me or complete the contact form, I will then book the counselling room once we agree a time and day. I offer a free 30 minute assessment, this is just a quick meeting to see if I can offer the help you are looking for and for you to see if you are happy to work with me. Should you wish to continue for to see me for a further 30 minutes during that first session, I would charge half of my normal fee meaning £25.00/£30.00. My regular charge thereafter is £50.00 per hour in Amersham and £60.00 per hour in Berkhamsted.
Some more information
I realise that a first counselling session with a counsellor can be quite daunting. I am very happy to talk to you and reassure you prior to the initial session.
My sessions are very much client-led, we work together with whatever you wish to address on the day whether this is something from the present, past or future.
