14 June 2021 Roadmap Review
The Government today did not lift restrictions as had been anticipated due to the new Covid variants. The message therefore continues to be that "people should continue to work from home where then can". They feel that by 'easing off the accelerator' and being cautious now that there is hope that England will start to ease out from lockdown on the 19th July (if not sooner).
In line with this I have made an ethical considered decision to only continue to offer counselling and psychotherapy via Zoom, Skype and the phone.
Furthermore, taking into account all the information available today, and after careful consideration, I have made a further decision that face to face counselling will not resume in the Ripley Office until 7th September 2021. As of this time, the 'peak' that is anticipated will hopefully have come and gone and also age 24+ adults will have had the second dosage of vaccine which then covers the ages of clients I see mitigaging risk to all.
I am aware that many continue to have their mental health impacted as adjustments and loss is dealt with, not to mention long Covid symptoms too. Therefore it is important that, if you do need immediate support, that you reach out to channels such as private counsellors (like myself), charity funded counselling or services such as the Samaritans (24/7), 111, or, in the case of emergency, your local A & E service.
In these unprecedented times, all you can do is your best.
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**
