Counselling - Frequently Asked Questions


Who do you work with?

I work in a holistic way, looking at all aspects of your life and in particular, any areas that you may be having difficulty with.

I have extensive experience working with:

  • Family and Relationship issues
  • Depression
  • Self esteem and lack of self confidence
  • Anxiety and stress
  • Bereavement
  • Addictions including alcohol abuse
  • Work problems
  • Living with chronic illness
How many sessions do I need?

Each person is unique and their needs are different. If we agree to work together we can discuss for how long. If you want to work on a specific issue such as redundancy, bereavement, or managing change you may just need a few sessions. Alternatively, we may agree to work on a longer term, more open ended basis.
