Thinking in terms of myself and how I work I would describe myself as a qualified and very experienced counsellor based and working in the Crawley area.
I hold a BACP Accredited Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling and I am also a registered member of BACP and abide by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. My way of working is termed Integrative which means that I can draw upon different types of therapeutic approaches to meet the individual needs of my clients.
I have experience of working with a wide range of issues including anxiety, loss, low mood and depression, stress, personal development, life stages and relationship issues.
In addition have a particular interest in working building self- confidence and resilience and looking at different life stages such as becoming a parent and the changing needs of being a mother or father to ever growing children, â€˜ empty nestâ€™ feelings and menopause.
Over the years I have worked in different locations in West Sussex as a counsellor including dedicated counselling services, NHS counselling services and Schools. I have decided mostly to work in Crawley and Horsham as I feel by working and living locally that I am in touch with the issues and difficulties that are around for local people.
My practice is situated in a quiet area of Crawley with free on street parking available .I can offer my clients a range of appointment times covering day and evening appointments and I can offer sessions on a long or short term basis as required.
My usual fee is Â£40 per 50 minute session but I can offer concessions depending on individual circumstances for clients who otherwise might find it difficult to access counselling
I am happy for you to contact me by email or telephone with questions you may have before arranging an initial 50 minute session to discuss together whether counselling is something you would like to undertake with me.
