13 April Roadmap Review
The Government continue to state "people should continue to work from home where then can".
In line with this I continue to offer Zoom, Skype and telephone counselling which I have done since March 2021 except when the government advised in September that we could return to work, which I did. This was to last just 3 weeks as the government made an about-turn and said to return back to homeworking so, in hindsight, I went ‘too early’.
I have delayed any thoughts of returning to face to face until restrictions had started to lift and, having given careful consideration to returning to face to face in the office, I have made a decision to return to face to face work on the 22nd June 2021. By then, there is hope that more people will have had the vaccine and, all being well, the infection rate will be low so I can better ensure the safety of my clients, and myself (this will be subject to any PPE restrictions which continue to be in place).
I want to acknowledge that these are unprecedented times and I am aware that many have had their mental health impacted as well as dealing with loss. If you do need support then please know support is available for you if you reach out. Available channels are private counselling like myself, charity funded counselling, and services such as the Samaritans (24/7), 111, or, in the case of emergency, your local A & E service.
Welcome to my website which I hope will give you an idea of how I work as a BACP accredited counsellor and psychotherapist. I am an individual and couple counsellor and I am very passionate about my work believing change is available to all.
What is interesting in life is that we are only born with two fears.....fear of falling and fear of loud noises; everything else (thoughts, feelings and behaviour) is learnt; what we learn can be unlearnt if we want to.
Whatever your reasons for seeking counselling / psychotherapy our sessions are confidential and separate from your everyday life.
I work with men and women on an individual and couples basis.
I have extensive experience in a wide spectrum of issues including:-
(Being diagnosed with a label and finding a condition that accurately matches your experience, whether internally or externally, can help something shift inside you and bring understanding and awareness yet I truly believe that each person is so much more than a label being unique, special and different).
**Please note that face to face counselling is currently suspended due to Government Guidelines**
