I work with young people. I recognise and understand that teenagers and adolescents experience emotional difficulties for a number of reasons. It may be due to a change in their circumstances, such as parental divorce or separation, loss of a loved one, the pressure to 'do well', bullying, lack of confidence or just general confusion in their life. Sessions for students (11-18 years) are £30 for 50 minutes.
I work with adults on a wide range of life's issues. These include abuse, anxiety, bullying, confidence, depression, family issues, grief and loss, personal boundaries, relationship issues, self-esteem, self-harming behaviours and work-related issues.
I also specialise in working with and supporting women, and their families, who have experienced loss of pregnancy at any stage. (Including early or late miscarriage, stillbirth or termination.)
How much do you charge? My usual rate is £45 per session. (Sessions are 50 minutes.) However, I believe that the benefits of counselling should be more accessible to people regardless of their circumstances, so I do offer some concessionary rate places. Please do not let money concerns prevent you from contacting me if you would like to talk this through.
How many sessions will I need? This can vary from person to person. The counselling I offer is open-ended, this means that it can be as short (six sessions) or long-term as you feel is necessary. This is something we can discuss and explore during the initial consultation, you may get some idea of how many sessions you feel may need. This is also something that we can regularly review together.
Where are you? I am situated in Alresford, approximately 7 miles from Winchester. The town has good public transport links.
