Would you like some extra support to help you to deal with challenges which impact your day to day life? Whether you are experiencing a crisis or facing a long term personal challenge online counselling can give you an opportunity to access counselling support at a time and in a way which is convenient for you. If it is difficult for you to find travel to counselling perhaps because of distance or pressures of time or perhaps health issues mean you are housebound or you have young children or you have moved to another country for work, then you can use online counselling to access counselling at flexible times wherever you are.* I have flexible daytime availability for new clients for online counselling. I offer online counselling via email, instant messaging or audio options.
I have supported people through many issues via online counselling and in my experience it is often as effective as face to face counselling and sometimes even more beneficial e.g. in working with shame and anxiety.
I specialise in enabling change if you are suffering from stress, anxiety or depression. I offer counselling from a Christian perspective where requested, including if you are struggling with your faith. You don’t have to have a faith to come to me as we will work within the areas that are helpful for you. I am also experienced in helping people with depression, relationships, loss and many aspects of physical, emotional or spiritual wellbeing.
I integrate a range of counselling models and tools using a holistic approach to well being tailored to your needs. This can include considering how issues impact you in body, mind and if desired spirit. Methods include use of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Person-Centred , Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy, Solution-Focused, Mindfulness and creative approaches as best suits for each person. Coaching and well being training can be included in your counselling experience.

This will give you the opportunity to ask any questions you have. If we agree to go ahead this will then be followed up by a more detailed assessment/introductory session of 60 minutes. The fee for the 60 minute session is £45 for face to face sessions and £30 for email or instant messaging options.
