I am an experienced qualified Person Centred counsellor offering confidential counselling in Stevenage and surrounding areas.
Approaching a counsellor can feel a daunting prospect, but I believe that when you do it is the relationship and joint endeavour between you and your chosen counsellor that can help you to gain clarity and perspective around any difficulties you may be experiencing at any given time
Based on this I believe finding the right person to work with is a very important step in your counselling I therefore offer a free initial meeting of about 30 to 40 minutes to give us the opportunity to see if we feel happy to work together
I am a member of the BACP ( The British association for counselling and psychotherapy) and am bound by and work to their ethical guidelines for good practise in counselling an psychotherapy.
This is to ensure that I am working safely and ethically with you the client
In line with the above ethical guidelines I attend regular clinical supervision with a qualified supervisor
this is where i go to talk about my work i do not share my clients names therefore your anonymity will be protected at all times
With regards to confidentiality everything you tell me within our sessions together will remain confidential and the only exceptions to this would be if i had serious concerns for your safety or the safety of someone else or something i am legally required to disclose by law. Generally speaking in most cases I will be able to discuss this with you first.
Counselling takes place from my home on
Shephall Green In Stevenage
My Counselling room is situated in a tranquil area within my garden in a building completely separate from my house this ensures total privacy
Clients are welcome to park on the drive and there is normally parking available within the street.
