Step into a life you love!
 

Sometimes, life can feel really difficult - you find it hard to make decisions, or you feel down and don't know why, you worry about everyday stuff  or you may feel overwhelmed and like you can't cope.  Sometimes, you really don't know what is going on for you - you just know you don't feel right.

Or you may know exactly what the issue is -  maybe you have had a relationship breakdown or lost a loved one,  or you are struggling at work and feel you cant cope. 

Person-centred therapy can help you get to the root of the issue using gentle, empathic guidance and helpful interventions.   Together we will untangle all those thoughts and feelings.  

I have experience working with those who have experienced anxiety, childhood neglect, coercive control, bereavement and many other issues.  I am also menopause informed.

Is it time to start living a life you love?

Menopause

Menopause is a natural and inevitable part of a woman's life, yet it can bring about a range of physical, emotional, and psychological changes that may feel overwhelming or confusing. As a menopause-informed counsellor, I am dedicated to helping you navigate this transition with grace and understanding.  I provide a caring environment where you can openly discuss your feelings, anxieties, and emotional ups and downs related to menopause and offer  coping strategies to help you thrive during his challenging time

Frequently Asked Questions 

How do I know if I need counselling?

Only you can decide whether you wish to try counselling. Just talking to someone confidentially who is not a friend or family member can make all the difference. Counselling provides a regular time for you to explore your feelings and talk about any problems you're experiencing. As a  counsellor, I can help you develop better ways of coping, allowing you to move forward and get the most out of life.

 

How do I know you are qualified?

I am qualified as a Counsellor and am a member of the BACP.  You can see my directory listing here :

https:/www.counselling-directory.org.uk/counsellors/ann-curry

This organisation have a strict verification process in order to allow me to be listed on their site.

 

As a member of the BACP, you can be reassured that I have met the standards of training and experience required by that organisation. The BACP have a Code of Ethics that outlines the way their members should work, and a complaints process to follow if things don’t work out as planned - so you know you’re in good hands.  This means you can have confidence that I have studied, met recognised standards, and participate in on-going professional development.

How long does each counselling session last?

Each session will usually last 50 minutes. 

How regularly will I need sessions and how many will I need?

Most clients attend weekly sessions, at least initially while we get to know each other.  Its difficult to say how many sessions you will need.  I would suggest that 6 - 10 sessions is the average but some clients do come for longer.  It really depends on what is going on for you and what you would like to achieve from your sessions. 

How much does counselling cost?

My current fees are £45 for a 50 minute session.

Can I have counselling online or by telephone?

Yes, I currently offer sessions via Teams.  I have undertaken an additional 80 hours of training in online counselling to ensure I am competent to counsel online or by telephone.
