Your Safe Harbour: Counselling & Psychotherapy
Are you aged between 13 and 75? Do you need a safe place to talk to someone about how you feel, what has happened or how you can change what is happening in your life? Is it hard to talk about with friends and family?
Counselling at Your Safe Harbour is a safe space to come to have time to reflect on your situation and decide what, if anything, you need to change, and how you might find your way through.
If your problems stem from something that happened a long time ago, or from repeating patterns of behaviour, then psychotherapy at Your Safe Harbour can help.
As a qualified and registered psychotherapist and counsellor, I would be happy to meet with you for an initial session, during which you could see if I am the person who can help you through. There is no obligation and no contract unless you decide to go ahead with the work. You only pay for the one session. Anything you tell me will be kept private, unless someone is in immediate danger, full details of confidentiality can be discussed when we meet.
If you would like to know more, or find out if I'd be the right person for you to work with, then please call me to arrange an initial session where we can meet to discuss your needs. If you are then happy to continue, we will arrange a weekly session lasting 50 minutes. The work will vary in length depending on your issues, lasting anything from 6 sessions to 2 or 3 years.
Having also worked with young people for many years, I will be happy to work with anyone aged 12 to 18, if they are able to make use of counselling. The work will normally not be long term as, with younger people, my aim is to enable them to manage their lives, without counselling, as soon as possible and young people tend to change more quickly than adults.
For those who are interested, I work integratively and humanistically. I am informed by Existential, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, Person-Centred and Psychoanalytical theories. I am a registered HIP Therapist with UKCP and am a member of BACP (MBACP). I have qualifications in both Counselling and Psychotherapy as well as Teaching, Training and Psychology.
I look forward to hearing from you.
