Welcome to Way Ahead Counselling

How can Counselling help me ?

I am an experienced and professional BACP accredited counsellor offering support and talking therapy to individuals who need a safe, confidential and completely non-judgemental space to talk things through.

I specialise in supporting individuals through difficult times, with particular interest in generalised anxiety, food and eating issues, body image, self-esteem and confidence, bullying at work, relationship breakdown and mid-life crisis.

If you have been feeling anxious or overwhelmed about a problem or issue, especially if it is one of long-standing, I invite you to have a look at some of the resources on my website or just to get in touch via the form on the Contact page and we can arrange a phone call or meeting as soon as possible.

I offer a discounted first session at £25 for 45 minutes with the aim of giving you chance to tell me a little about your current situation and to find out how counselling could help you move forward with it.

I practice from quiet premises in St Albans with free parking outside and have various daytime and evening slots available to new clients. My rates are very reasonable and start from £40.00.

I really wanted to say thank you thank you thank you for your time, your effort, knowledge, thoughts and finally feelings over the last 20+ sessions.  I know and feel I have progressed amazingly and I know I couldn’t have done that without
you and your guidance.   MK (client)
