Experienced counselling and psychotherapy in Sheffield S10 near Weston Park

Are you struggling with anxiety or low self-esteem, arguments, relationship problems, trust issues, depression or stress at work or college?

People often tell me how helpful it feels to speak to a qualified supportive outsider. You might like to try an introductory session. This can be a good way to decide for yourself if counselling could help. Why not give me a call on: 0114 266 5656 to discuss your concerns?

  • Are you frustrated by unhelpful behaviour-patterns?
  • Or wondering if relationship-counselling could help?
  • Trying to cope with anger, trust-issues or mood-swings?
  • Are you struggling with lack of confidence or low self esteem?
  • Experiencing depression, anxiety, or pressure at work or uni?
  • Are you trying to think through a difficult decision?
  • Or coming to terms with loss or change?

Men and women from all walks of life use my counselling and psychotherapy services in Sheffield S10. Some come for individual sessions, some for couples counselling.

The cost: I aim to provide good quality affordable counselling. Click here for information about my 'sliding-scale' of charges.

I am conveniently located close to the Childrens' Hospital and the Goodwin Sports Centre in Sheffield S10

I have specialist training on the many of the issues people bring to counselling today.

I use several complimentary techniques, not just one approach. This helps me tune into what works best for you.

I don't just sit there asking occasional questions! Sessions sound pretty much like a two-way conversation between friendly equals. Listening to you is very important, of course, but I also offer feedback, suggest small behaviour-changes and assignments and give coaching in practical self-help skills. 

My sessions are 10-20 minutes longer than most. Enough time to make real progress.
 
Telephone or Skype sessions can be arranged if you can't travel to a face-to-face session.

My counselling premises are discreet. You won't have to face busy waiting-rooms or miles of impersonal corridors.

I offer occasional 'check-in' sessions after your regular counselling has ended. You can use these to make sure you maintain your progress. You can also talk about new issues without having to start from the beginning.

One of my favourite quotations is: “you can’t stop the waves but you can learn to surf.”

We all know that it is possible to learn how to steer a car, but we don’t always realise how possible it is to learn how to steer our lives. Nobody ever gets to be perfect at this (well nobody I know anyway!) but we can all improve with the right input and motivation.

25 years’ practical experience counselling men and women from South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire has taught me a lot.   I can often get to the heart of the matter in the first sessions so you don’t waste valuable time.
