My Training, experience and Fees
My Qualifications and Professional Body
I hold an Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Counselling and a certificate in couples counseling. I am also a certified teacher of yoga based meditation at the Brahmrishi Mission UK. I can incorporate meditation into my counselling practice with clients but only if wanted.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I work to their ethical guidelines.
I have experience of working in Sam Beare and Woking Hospice hospices and The Fountain Centre in Guildford with clients experiencing bereavement and life limiting illness. I currently offer counselling to members of "Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide (SOBS). I have worked with male and female survivors of rape and sexual abuse at Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Centre (RASASC) in Guildford. I have also worked with a number of other different issues, for example relationship counselling, whilst working for different organisations. I currently work in private practice.
I worked for 25 years in Government organisations and this included being a team leader where I gained significant experience in staff management and dealing with the stresses of the corporate work. I draw upon this experience when counselling clients who are dealing with work related stress and other corporate pressures.
My Fees and Cancellation Policy
I generally charge £55 for individual counseling and £75 for couples counseling per session. I ask for 24 hours notice of cancellation otherwise payment is required.
