My Commitment

 

My commitment to you involves offering you an environment which is safe, warm, empathic, non-judgemental and confidential, in order to offer an opportunity to try and make sense of your past experiences, as well as current dilemmas; discovering how they affect your life today and exploring whether or not they are relevant to your future.

I offer one to one counselling at my Liverpool city centre base.   In an ideal world counselling is done face to face, as it enables the client and counsellor to understand each other as things such as body language and reactions can be considered.  However, we do not live in an ideal world and sometimes it is simply not possible to attend counselling in this way, therefore I also offer telephone counselling.

I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) which means that I work within their ethical framework, ensuring that I always work within your best interests . I also attend regular training days to ensure that I am up to date with my skills and knowledge.
