Hi. My name is Yvette and I have recently set up my private practice offering my clients an hour online video appointments, along with support between appointments via text, phone call or email. I have a background in housing and criminal law and completed my degree in Criminology, Policing and Forensics in 2017 before re-training as a counsellor as I want to help people.
I trained later in life and completed training at the age of 50, and then spent the last 2 years updating my skills and being mentored but am now qualified CBT Counsellor and a Life Coach. Working from home allows me to offer appointments in the evening or at weekends. My session fees are £30 per session. I do not charge extra for the support between appointments unless you require an extra session of 30-60 minutes.
So far, I have been able to assist clients who have experienced trauma, or have issues such marital issues, anger, anxiety or depression, stress, impulsive behaviour and also including therapy for communication and self esteem. The range of issues that I can help requires a multi-faceted approach so alongside more “traditional” CBT Therapy, I also use DBT (Dialectal Behaviour Therapy) or a combination of the two in order to provide a truly personal experience for my clients.
Payments must be made in advance, either on a pay-per-session fee or via a pre-pay block booking. Please note my Terms and Conditions on my website regarding refunds as these are not offered in any way due to the amount of work I have to do prior to each session, and the planning for longer term pre-paid sessions. However, life does happen so I will always offer clients a free alternative appointment if one is missed, providing I receive 24 hours notice.
Qualified as CBT Counsellor in 2018 before taking on a period of supervision before finally being able to start my private practice. Since then, I have been building up practical experience to complement the theoretical basis. So far, I have helped a range of clients who have presented a wide range of issues. these have included (but not limited to):
Stress, anxiety, depression
Impulse Behaviour control
At the end of last ear (2020) I decided to proceed in setting up my own online based therapy practice, so that I can continue to work throughout the pandemic and beyond.
£30 per session £165 to pre pay 6 sessions
