0177 269 8388 / 0740 388 9698
Hello and welcome to my site. I'm a professional counsellor, qualified life coach and an intuitive / Reiki Healer based in Preston. However, I'm also a spiritual adventurer who prefers to have a mind opened by wonder than closed by belief. To this end I've been down many roads, which is why I introduce an assortment of different tools into my practice. So please do browse my personal website http://www.enlightenmentcounsellng.co.uk, where I'm sure that you'll find something that appeals to you and takes you out of your comfort zone and into the realms of enlightenment and growth.
Things such as:
Meditation & Visualisation
The Law of Attraction
Tarot Readings & Tarot Training
Discover the real you ... the person you are meant to be!
Training, qualifications & experience
I work differently from other counsellors in-so-much as I combine the two areas of counselling and life coaching. Look at it this way ... if you were injured then it's likely that you'd go to A&E. Once there they would assess you by asking a few key questions, they'd gently peel your clothing away, clean the affected area and stop the flow of blood in order to see the wound more clearly. Metaphorically speaking that's what I do. If clients present with an issue be it an addiction, anxiety, low self-esteem, an abusive relationship, a past trauma etc, etc. Initially they are likely to feel worried, confused and upset. So, we will work through that in the first instance until they are in a place where they feel comfortable going further. As a life coach I will provide the tools necessary to support them through this period. As a counsellor I will then walk along side them on their journey.
Sometimes, however, the client may benefit from taking action by setting some goals in order to move forward in his/her life. Maybe you'd like to...
- Feel better about yourself
- Find out what is holding you back
- Get a new career (or a raise)
- Lose weight
- Get your child(ren) to behave better
- Or something else
Counselling can help you find out what it is that's sabotaging your life. Life Coaching can help you focus on what it is that you want and how to go about getting it.
If at times this all feels too overwhelming then I am also a reiki healer. Reiki sessions allow you to just "be". It's basically a deep relaxation session where you can stop the "chatter" and escape from reality. It can take you to wherever you want it to.
By using this holistic approach I feel comfortable knowing that I am looking after my clients in the best way possible.
I'm a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and am fully insured (with Holistic Services). My portfolio of registrations, memberships, insurance policies, qualifications and certifications are available for perusal at any time during our sessions.
Home visits, including those for Reiki, will be considered on a client-by-client basis, but will incur additional travelling expenses.
As always I continue to welcome the chance to work with people of different genders, origins, ages, abilities, sexualities and faiths.
Counselling / life coaching services are also available via on-line methods, for those people unable to attend in person. Under these circumstances in lieu of Reiki I can provide guided meditation sessions.
The success of my services is dependent upon the relationship between the client and the practitioner. It requires a commitment from both parties, as in any other relationship. There are no quick fixes, I'm not a magician but I know from experience that it can be a magical and empowering experience!
Other available therapies
Professional person-centred counsellor, trained in play therapy and qualified Life Coach and Reiki Healer.
It's difficult talking about money when it relates to a person's well being, but I feel that my prices compare well with others in my profession, who maybe don't offer the "complete package" as I do. This is one of the most important investments that you will ever make - an investment in your self and in your life. I believe that you're worth it!
Sessions can be combined, if that was considered to be beneficial by both client and practitioner. Intuitive / Reiki healing sessions can be condensed into 30 minutes, so in some instances it would be possible to have a 60 minute session consisting of counselling / life coaching combined with a relaxation session. However, this would not be considered the "norm" for all sessions.
All sessions will be charged at £45.00 per hour.
My fee for child therapy is £50 per 60 minute session. This higher cost is due to the outlay for items, extra time taken ferrying the various toys, creative items eg paints, pens, paper, craft tools, play dough, plastercine, puppets etc, to and from the counselling room, setting out the room, cleaning up and tidying away.
Couple counselling will be £55 per 60 minute session.
Supervision work will be charged at a cost of £45.00 per 1hr 30mins. This is purely because that is how much I am charged for my supervision.
I will visit cients at their home but this will incur an additional charge to cover petrol and travelling time.
