Integrative Counselling


Counselling is not advice giving but is about self-discovery of the true issues concerning you.  The counselling process is built upon the relational bond between counsellor and client and is created through trust and understanding.   You are an integral part in how the process evolves.  We explore the thoughts and feelings which you choose to share with me, in a safe and supportive way with confidentiality being paramount.  We work together with you taking the lead as no-one is in a position to know what is troubling you better than yourself.  


As an integrative therapist I can draw upon the theories which I feel will suit you specifically.  I tend to work using person centred therapy in order to establish a therapeutic relationship and then choose relevant interventions from other theories such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy or Transactional Analysis Theory as appropriate to your needs.


Sometimes you may need an independent listening ear to share your concerns safely.  The worry of causing your loved ones emotional stress can make you feel like you are a burden.  This can limit who you are able to share your concerns with.  Counselling can fill this void and provide support, allowing you to explore your difficulties without the risk of emotionally harming a loved one.


I work from a comfortable, dedicated counselling space in Stockport.  I offer sessions from this location at various times of the week including evenings and weekend appointments.  I am also able to offer sessions from a comfortable, counselling area in South Wilmslow for day time appointments (8.30 am to 3.30 pm).  Please contact me if you require further information.

As the success of counselling depends greatly upon the strength of the counselling relationship between therapist and client, I offer an initial half hour consultation for free.  At the end of the first half hour, we can decide whether we feel the counselling service delivered by me will suit your needs.  If not, you are free to leave owing nothing.



Counselling Fees


An initial session for a counselling hour (50 minutes) costs £20.  If you feel I am the right counsellor for you, future sessions are £35 per counselling hour.  

I offer concessionary rates for students, clients in receipt of state pension and for longer term work (over 8 sessions).  Please contact me for further details.
