Lancaster Counselling & Psychotherapy
Due to the COVID-19 virus, Psychotherapy Sessions are currently conducted via Skype. When the lockdown ends it may be possible to have one to one sessions again. This will include a Pre-Contract and all necessary safety measures taken as outlined by the UK government and my Accrediting Bodies. These measures include social distancing, a mask and gloves being provided and all surfaces and objects sanitised to ensure the safety of each Client.

Lancaster Counselling & Psychotherapy can help you deal with a wide range of difficulties and their symptoms.
As an Integrative Psychotherapist with 20 years’ of experience, I am able to offer a diverse number of Mental Health treatments on a non-judgmental and completely confidential basis.
My efforts and priorities will be to arrange Therapy around your own needs.
If your aim is to achieve a more fulfilling life with a better day to day experience of peace, achievement and contentment, then I will endeavour to achieve these goals with you. Over many years I have successfully helped people with a wide range of difficulties, symptoms and challenges.
Greater personal insight, recovery and an indepth understanding will also be our aim and goal. Alongside strengthening your own inner sense of self belief, this forms a foundation for our work together.
My approach to Therapy is based upon a relational foundation and yet, as an Integrative Psychotherapist, it is possible to draw upon the fluidic whole of Psychodynamic, Humanistic, Gestalt, Transactional Analysis, Human Development and Cognitive and Behavioural treatments in order to achieve resolution. This diversity will further enable the effectiveness of your Therapy. Inclusively, I am able to treat and manage dysfunctional cognitive neurosis and Pathological Personality Disorders, allowing for an overarching whole to be achieved.,
I have worked within the NHS as well as alongside other Psychotherapists and Counsellors within a group setting. However, presently I work on a one to one basis and can provide flexibility as well as a respectful understanding of your other priorities. Concurrently, over the previous 20 years I have encountered many individuals with mild, moderate and more severe psychological and emotional and difficulties. These are burdens which many have carried for years without help.
Consequently, my experience informs me that seeking the aid of a Mental Health Professional has proven to be a beneficial way for my Clients to achieve the restoration, or the emergence, of a meaningful and more contented way of life including more positive relationships with your “self” and others.
I believe that problems can be solved and that personal anguish should not be carried alone. Also, recovery and healing are possible to achieve. This includes more positive ways of thinking and feeling, which can help you to carry out your life in a healthier way.
No thoughts, worries, anxieties or past and present harmful experiences are ever too small or too large to be addressed. Possessing good mental health is truly achievable. As a Therapist, I have witnessed the changes, solutions and resolutions which have occurred throughout my years of practice. There have been many occasions when I have been aware that a person has evolved positively with the supportive guidance and knowledge that alternative help will continue to be provided with the opportunity for recovery and resolution.
My fees are £40 - £45 for a one hour Session (concessions may be available at my discretion).
I look forward to meeting and helping you on your road to recovery.
