Counselling with Ben

Why counselling?

There are times in life when it can be helpful to talk in a safe and confidential space to an experienced counsellor. Everyone has a different reason for starting counselling and while this can greatly vary, counselling is often sought to understand difficulties people are experiencing in their lives, to start to improve a person’s wellbeing, or to change self-limiting thoughts.

Often our problems do not fit neatly into a category and so I work primarily with my clients’ experience of the world as the focus of counselling. I provide sessions for individuals, usually on a weekly basis from my private practice and this can be face-to-face, online or by phone.

I am a fully accredited counsellor based in Somerset and have experience working with the following issues:

  • Addiction
  • Anger
  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement and grief
  • Burnout and exhuastion
  • Compulsive behaviour
  • Depression
  • Eating disorders
  • Phobias
  • Postnatal and perinatal depression
  • Relationship problems
  • Self-harm
  • Sexual abuse
  • Sexual violence
  • Stress
  • Suicide
  • Trauma

Introductory sessions (30 minutes) are free so that clients can decide whether they feel my counselling approach can work for them. My fees for further sessions are:

  • Face to face: £40 per hour
  • Online: £30 per hour
  • Telephone: £25 per hour
  • Email/text: £5 per 15 mins
  • Walking therapy: bespoke pricing based on area
