Enlightened Counselling


Welcome to



A confidential space to explore the thoughts,

feelings and challenges in your life

MBACP (Accred)

Why choose counselling?

The most important relationship that you will have in your lifetime is the one you have with yourself. Internal enlightenment helps us to understand why we feel the way we do and subsequently the way we interact/react in our relationships and our surroundings. Without such insight, we can experience displaced dissatisfaction, low mood, depression or anxiety. Talking it through in a safe space, unclouded from everyday distractions can unravel confusions, enhance clarity and help us to rediscover our inner strength, enhance fulfilment and personal peace in our lives.

"He who knows others is wise, he who knows himself is enlightened"

Lao Tzu

Appointments & fees

Counselling is normally most effective if we can meet on a weekly basis. However, I understand that this is not always possible due to life commitments and affordability. I offer appointments in the daytime and some evenings.

  • My fees are £60 per 50 minute individual session and £80 per 60 minutes couples session.

Please note that if you want to cancel an appointment I require 48 hours’ notice; otherwise you will still need to pay for any sessions missed. I accept payment in cash, by cheque or by bank transfer.

Get in touch

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about how counselling works, or to arrange an initial assessment appointment. This enables us to discuss the reasons you are thinking of coming to counselling, whether it could be helpful for you and whether I am the right therapist to help.

You can also call me on 07704707608 if you would prefer to leave a message or speak to me first. I am happy to discuss any queries or questions you may have prior to arranging an initial appointment.

All enquires are usually answered within 24 hours, and all contact is strictly confidential and uses secure phone and email services.
