Affordable online and phone counselling – Private Practice Hub

Categories: My Services:

Hello, I’m Heidi, an approachable and down-to-earth therapist, aiming to offer you a confidential, calm, open-minded and non-judgmental space for you to express and explore any current difficulties, hurt or worries in your life. My counselling approach is integrative, mainly drawing on person-centred, psychodynamic concepts and attachment theory, though I also work creatively and intuitively within the moment. 

I understand that life is complex and sometimes you might need some extra support, especially if you’re feeling sad, fearful or overwhelmed just trying to get through another day. Perhaps you’ve been through a painful experience, or lost a sense of who you are, where you belong, or what you want in life. 

​My background in the creative industries, touring and live events has meant I’ve been fortunate to meet and work with people from a variety of cultural, religious and social backgrounds. This has given me understanding and sensitivity to people’s diverse life experiences and how these may impact upon their lives.  

​We’ll take a journey that is unique to you. We’ll start from your ‘here and now’ feelings, experiences and relationships, and if it feels right for you, we can work together to discover connections to your past and to consider how those experiences might be affecting your present life. I’m committed to supporting and encouraging you to gain new insight and understanding of your self, with the intention of helping you feel more empowered or less ‘stuck’, feel better able to move forward more positively and make lasting changes in your life.

We can work together for a shorter period of weeks or months or should you wish to, for longer-term work.

I am currently available to provide online or phone counselling.

The cost for each 50 minute online or phone session is £45. I offer an initial free 30-minute consultation/assessment session either over the phone or online, where we can discuss and explore some of your reasons for seeking therapy, what counselling involves and how it may help. This session is also an opportunity for us learn a little bit about each other before you decide whether you feel comfortable to work with me

You do not have to pay if I am unable to make a session. Please give me as much notice as possible if you’re unable to attend your session. I will also give you as much notice as possible if I cannot keep our appointment. Contact Information Contact Name: Heidi Shepherd Phone Number: 07432 253025 Email Address: Send an email
