Person-Centred Psychotherapy & Counselling

The relationship between the client and the therapist is central to Person-Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy.  As a therapist I offer a space to encourage you to feel at ease to talk about the difficulties you might be experiencing, to help you identify and promote changes in your life that you might wish for in order to enhance your well-being. What is essential in our work together is that you feel heard and understood accurately without fear of being judged. 

How much does counselling/psychotherapy cost?

  • My current fee is between £60 – £75 per one hour session.

Length and  Number of Sessions

  • Therapy sessions last for 60 minutes. I offer both short term and long term therapy.
  • I am happy to provide more information about this on request.

Frequency of sessions

  • Sessions are usually offered on a weekly basis particularly at the outset of our work together as this helps to build up momentum for change to occur. Towards the close of therapy you may choose to have more space in between sessions.

LOCATION

I work out of rooms in Taunton, Somerset. However currently all sessions – counselling/psychotherapy, supervision and mindfulness courses are offered online only.

“We think we listen, but very rarely do we listen with real understanding, true empathy. Yet listening, of this very special kind, is one of the most potent forces for change that I know”
Carl Rogers
1980

The key to growth

Carl Rogers who first developed the Person-Centred Approach discovered that, ‘it is the client who knows what hurts, what directions to go, what problems are crucial, what experiences  have been deeply buried’ (Carl Rogers, On Becoming a Person 1961). This alone indicates how the person coming to therapy is central for what is explored. My role is to put you at the heart of our work, helping you to uncover what changes, if any, need to occur. It is not about my telling you how you should live your life and what you should do. For my part, being genuine, empathic and valuing of you in our relationship is key to growth.
