Humanistic Counsellor

Fees: £55 for 50 min session

I can help you if you are experiencing issues that are causing you distress. Many of us will feel overwhelmed, anxious, depressed or ‘stuck’ and it takes courage to ask for help, but you don’t have to struggle to work things out on your own.

Finding someone to talk to, when you feel this way, is a sign of strength and regardless of what has brought you to this point, it’s about where you go from here that matters.

I offer a safe, compassionate, and confidential space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours without judgement. As we build a trusting and collaborative relationship, we can work together to make sense of what you’re thinking and feeling. I can offer insight, support, and strategies to help you move forward.

Humanistic therapy focuses on you as a 'whole'. It encourages you to think about your feelings and take responsibility for your thoughts and actions. The emphasis is on self-development, growth and achieving your highest potential.

Training & Experience:

My formal training was at the Metanoia Institute, Ealing and I hold both a BSc in Humanistic Counselling and a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. These qualifications incorporated training in Gestalt, Transactional Analysis and Person-Centred modalities. I work in an integrative way to tailor these different approaches to your needs.

I also hold a certificate in Trauma-Focused therapy which enables me to explore the impact of diverse types of traumas that clients have experienced, and work effectively with them.

My 3-year training placement was at the You Trust which offered low-cost counselling to residents of Portsmouth. Once qualified, I worked at Paragon Counselling with clients who had experienced or were experiencing domestic abuse, coercive control, or stalking issues and then went on to work at STAR Counselling with clients who had experienced sexual trauma.

Most recently I worked for the NHS as a psycho-oncology counsellor supporting patients with a cancer diagnosis throughout their journey.

I regularly undertake continue professional development, to ensure my therapeutic practice is current.

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their Code of Ethics and I am fully insured.

Booking/Cancellations:

The quality of the relationship between a client and counsellor is crucial for therapy to be effective and successful. Our relationship will be an important part of your journey, so I offer a free half hour telephone or Zoom consultation for us to get to know each other. The session offers you the opportunity to ask questions and decide if I am the 'right fit' for you, without any obligation and I can be confident that I’m well placed to support you and help you grow. Please email me to arrange this.

Fees are payable in advance of each session, by bank transfer. Cancellations, with no charge, require 48 hours’ notice.
