Fees

"The approach I take to my counselling and psychotherapy practice is to provide you with a safe, confidential, non-judgemental and warm space; I offer open ended or short-term work dependant on your needs.

I have been in private practice for over 5 years and have an established practice based in Buxton, Derbyshire. I have recently expanded my practice to cover Sheffield and the surrounding areas.

My theoretical approach is in Psychodynamic and Psychoanalytical Therapy, as well as studying various other approaches. This means I can offer you a tailor made integrative counselling service to best suit your needs.

Once you are happy in your choice of working with me you may begin to feel an immediate sense of relief, for the first time you are being listened to. For the first time, someone is concerned with your well-being, and will not be there to judge you.

What will it be like for me?

However, there is the possibility you may feel more anxious or distressed once we commence, as you begin to face those difficult feelings you have been ignoring.

At this point, you may feel worse before you begin to feel better. Please do not be afraid to share with me how your therapy is making you feel. It is all part of the process. Remember that I am here to offer you that safe space to experience all these thoughts and feelings.

Whilst psychotherapy and/or counselling will not rid you of painful memories it will help you to develop a deeper understanding of your self. Once this acceptance of your self has been gained, it is then changes will occur.
