Online therapy and counselling
I've had the pleasure of working as an Audiologist for the past 25 years and more recently a School counsellor and Bereavement volunteer for Cruse. I am always heartened by our ability for growth and adaption especially when life seems to throw challenges our way and we face the unexpected.
I have many years experience working with people from all ages and groups plus lots of transferable skills when it comes to working as a counsellor.
Why choose me? If you are looking for maturity, gentleness and someone who puts you at ease, I might be the right fit for you. I believe that finding the right counsellor takes time and trust that the right clients will find me.
What experience do I have? Transferable skills with difference and diversity around working with the hearing impairment & deaf culture. Years of counselling training to perfect my skills and an ability to empathise with my clients and see the world through their eyes.
How can counselling help? Person-Centred counselling is all about you and your needs. We talk about the organism and its needs and its ability to grow. Just like a plant, without the right conditions it fails to thrive and we are no different. I will not tell you what to do or give you answers, my work is all about you finding your way, making changes that seem right to you.
In a nutshell its all about Empathy & Communication. It's that difficult stuff that lies under the surface which sometimes is unsaid and extremely hard to talk about. We can feel conflicted, causing all manner of feelings such as guilt, shame, remorse or blame.
If you are conflicted with your feelings and emotions and feel there are no words to describe this, I can offer a safe compassionate space for you to explore this, to talk about those feelings and help move away from feeling feeling stuck, lost or alone. This is a confidential space.
Advantages of Online work. Less travelling time, familiarity of being in the comfort of your home if you worry about leaving the house or feel anxious. Rural living or having mobility issues often limits your choice of counsellors to your local area but online counselling offers greater availability or choice of counsellor. If you live abroad - counselling online easily crosses time zones and seems like a natural progression from face-to-face work.
Online working is a natural progress from face-to-face work. It is not for everyone especially if there is a risk of being overheard or not being in a safe place in the home.
Who do I want to work with? I can work with Children if Gillick competent but ideally looking to see Young People 18+, Adults and Elders.
Book a free 30 minutes exploratory conversation to see if I am the right counsellor for you.
Make a quick phone call or send me an email and I promise to get back to you within 48 hrs.
Weekly video sessions via Zoom or Doxy.Me or over the telephone if you prefer.
Session length is always 50 minutes.
I will send you a link that needs to be clicked on for the counselling session which is easily done.
