Being human can be difficult can’t it, sometimes even overwhelming or unbearable?

Most of us  experience this sooner or later in our lives, and that can lead us to search for a source of trustworthy support and guidance.  Most likely that is why you’re  reading this right now, and I hope this is where you will find the support that you are seeking.

Transpersonal counselling supports us to ‘step back’ and find a more expansive perspective that increases our resilience in the face of whatever is occurring in our life.  

Increasing our understanding of how our personalities function is itself a helpful, some would say essential,  step towards developing more effective flexibility in meeting life’s challenges and finding more acceptance for ourselves and others.  

Transpersonal counselling goes even further, in guiding us to also recognise and experience ourselves as  ever-present and unchanging awareness, a state of effortless ‘being’ where we naturally feel peaceful and safe.  When we feel safer, we can view our personal experience with a clearer perspective and more resourcefulness.

What to expect

It is not possible to tell you exactly what to expect from a Transformational Counselling session, as this depends so much on what you bring to the session and what comes to light during it.  Each session is actually uniquely tailored to you and your needs at that time, rather than following a pre-set program, or any ideas that there is something wrong with you that needs to be ‘fixed’. 

What I can say is that my role is to offer a  non-judgemental space in which you can feel safe enough to explore both your current experience and the potential of some fresh perspectives.

A really important factor is what level of rapport we feel – in fact studies have shown that is the most significant variable affecting the effectiveness of counselling of any kind.  So I invite you to book a free initial session, in person or online and see how we feel about meeting one another.  We would use that time for you to tell me what is leading you to seek counselling at this time, and for me to answer any questions you may have about my approach to counselling.

Fees A one hour session fee is £55.  Any donation above this amount contributes to a bursary scheme that enables me to offer some reduced fee support for people on lower incomes. 

Frequency of sessions.  I recommend weekly sessions for the first 4 at least, in order to begin to build trust and support a sense of continuity.  After that, or if weekly is not possible for you, we can meet fortnightly and decrease that to longer times between sessions as you develop resourcefulness in yourself.

Cancellation Policy  48 hours notice required to cancel a session booking, otherwise full fee will due (except for exceptional circumstances)

Confidentiality  I abide by the BACP Ethical Framework for practitioners which can be found on the BACP website.
