JUNE 2021 - I currently do not have any appointments available. I have a waiting list and will happily add you if you get in touch, but it is likely to be many months before appointments become available.
Until further notice I am only working by videocall (Zoom or WhatsApp) or phonecall due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Fliss
Sometimes we can struggle to cope with what life throws at us. Maybe we know why, or maybe the reason is less clear or all we know is that we ‘don't feel right’. Although friends and family often want to help, sometimes it can be helpful to have someone independent to talk to, someone who won't tell us what to do and who is warm and accepting, allowing exploration of sensitive or painful issues. I believe that given the space to explore and understand our own experiencing we can all find the way forward that is right for us.
I work with individuals, offering an acceptant, warm and compassionate relationship to explore what is going on for you in your life, whether the need is targeted short-term counselling, or longer-term psychotherapy for deeper issues. I particularly work with issues around low mood and depression, anxiety, low self esteem, loss and bereavement, identity, sexuality and gender, although what’s going on for us is often complex and not so easy to categorise. I am happy to keep you ‘on track’ regarding a particular issue, or to help you explore as broadly as you wish.
I work in a person-centred/experiential way, offering the space and support for you to explore and understand your unique way of experiencing the world, and to find the way forward that is right for you. As we work together you may find that you develop improved self-awareness and self-compassion and feel better equipped to handle future issues.
The quality of the relationship between client and counsellor is key, so I suggest a phone call to arrange an initial session during which we can explore what has brought you to counselling and see how we get on together.
I offer sessions from premises in the S11 area of Sheffield, with access up one flight of stairs. The premises are private and safe with plenty of on-street parking. The 88/83 (not 83a) buses serve the area.
I work midweek (Tue and Wed) afternoons and evenings (last appointment 6pm or 6:30pm).
