If you're in pain right now and need some help - counselling can be an effective treatment. At present, I offer remote sessions Via Microsoft Teams.
I've summarised some FAQ's below to help you make a decision on whether counselling is right for you and whether I am the right counsellor for you too.
Is counselling right for me?
Counselling could be right for you if you're having a hard time with your mental health right now. Particularly if you have depression, anxiety, are stressed or have PTSD.
Counselling is a paid for service, so in order for it work for you, you should ensure you can afford it. I have a price list on my website that you can find in the menu.
Counselling can be time limited, or done on an ongoing basis (for example, you may choose to go to counselling for 6 weeks, or just until you feel ready to stop.
A good counsellor will tailor their approach to your needs.
How much does counselling cost?
You can find the full price list for counselling here:
Are you the right counsellor for me?
I am trained in integrative counselling, so I can tailor my approach to suit your needs.
Something you should know about me that may affect your decision on whether I am the right person for you are:
I have a lot of experience of severe depression, so I do draw from my own experiences when working with you.
I identify as a disabled person, and I work to the social model of disability. You can find out more about that by clicking the SMW button
I'm part of the LGBTQIA+ community and cater to everyone
I'm white. I regularly donate to user-led organisations that tackle racism.
What happens in a counselling session?
During your first session with me, we will sit down and discuss what is that has brought you to counselling.
You can tell me what has been causing you distress and we can together decide on the right approach for you going forward.
At present, I am working via Microsoft Teams - which means I will send you a link to our appointment via email and you can join online.
You may need to download the Microsoft Teams app ahead of time.
For counselling to work well for you, you'll need to come with an open mind and be willing to share.
How long do counselling sessions last?
Counselling sessions are usually booked in for one hour. However, I am open to negotiation for longer sessions. Please out a contact form if this is something you'd like to enquire about here:
What happens if I want to stop counselling?
You may decide counselling isn't right for you and you can cancel any remaining sessions we booked in.
When you join with me, you'll be given a terms of service document and this will detail cancellations, when and how you can contact me, what my responsibilities are to safeguard you and what I will do in an emergency.
If you do decide to rejoin counselling after you've stopped, I may not be able to offer you the same day and time slot you had before.
Who can have counselling?
I offer counselling to adults (18+)
Is there a waiting list?
I do manage a waiting list when my books are full. I also have a waitlist on group sessions when there are not enough people for a group, or where the group is full.
If there is a waiting list I will let you know when I receive your enquiry.
