Short term counselling or psychotherapy online

Short daily check in appointments online or by telephone

During social isolation, it is possible for you to check in with me for 15 minutes a day. These sessions are to help you through what is a most unusual and stressful time in our history. This is not psychotherapy; more a place to check in about what's going on for you right now; about worries & fears, feeling hopeless & lonely, or binge eating & compulsions. With someone impartial, caring, experienced, and professional.

Individual online or telephone counselling sessions

 Limited day time individual sessions available, as a one off or more regularly.

Initially, people often come to counselling for brief periods to discuss a current concern.

It is important that you feel safe with me.  So all clients start with an intial consultation session of 50 minutes to an hour. Then, the next step is to make a weekly short commitment. This is flexible; usually 4 to 6 weeks. Towards the end of this, we review what you need. We then decide whether to continue, or to have a final session.

Longer term online or telephone psychotherapy, and body psychotherapy

It took a lifetime to build our habits and behaviours. As a result, some things take longer to understand and change. You may already know that you are looking for longer term psychotherapy. So, my clients have the opportunity to stay for longer periods to work more deeply and thoroughly. Consequently, this is the most effective way to really make fundamental changes. It takes time to develop how you relate with people, and to improve your confidence and mood, more permanently.

 

 

Establishing trust

My first concern is to establish trust.

Consequently, we work to understand what's happening for you.

We then work on how to change it, and build your resources.

Attending Shelley’s ‘Understanding your Eating’ course was the most incredible and empowering experience that I have ever had. She really has taught me to understand my eating and I feel so free and alive!

Jo

I genuinely can’t believe how powerful the UyE Programme has been.  I had a light bulb moment during every session.  This is the first 6 weeks in my life that I haven’t binged!

Louise

Shelley brought together a group of strangers who became genuinely close companions during our sessions. I was reminded of how powerful women can be when they work together – sisters can conquer anything!

Janet

Shelley gave me the support I’d needed for a very, very long time. I also got a deeper insight into how I deal with things and how to do things differently. I learnt to appreciate my strengths and what I already do well…I learnt how to look after myself better…It helped me adapt to a very limited life (due to disability).

Abi

The time I had in counselling with Shelley was useful in exploring problems and starting to develop coping strategies.

Nicky

With Shelley I had an open comfortable environment in which I could explore the events and habits of old. This enabled me to challenge myself and my behaviours. It helped to support my state of mind through a very difficult time in my life.

Ryan

I’m amazed at how I can be in such a different place now to where I was just a few weeks ago before working with Shelley
