Welcome to counselling and therapy in Swindon
Are you struggling to cope right now?
Does life feel like it's getting on top of you?
Could you benefit from a place where you could just offload and explore what might be going on in your life?
Perhaps I could help.
So who am I? My name is Haoli (it's said like Hayley, but with an 'O' in the middle) and I'm a qualified (and accredited) counsellor, experienced in helping people find a way through many difficult issues and situations - and to get life back on track. This includes everyday difficulties such as problems with friends and family, but also more complex issues such as depression, anxiety, loss, relationship difficulties and abuse.
Due to the pandemic, I'm currently not meeting clients in person, but I'm still able to offer you the option of working with me online - via Skype, WhatsApp or Zoom - and, as your counsellor, my aim is to offer you a place where you'll have the freedom to explore what's going on in your life without judgement, and with the assurance of confidentiality. And, as we continue on this journey of discovery together, I trust you'll find ways in which to live life to the full - and with greater contentment. (On the about me page, you can read more about how I work as a therapist.)
As a counsellor, I work with both individuals and couples facing difficulties such as:
That said, no problem is ever too small if it's having an adverse effect on your life, so even if your difficulty isn't listed above, I'd like to encourage you to give me a call to see if counselling might help.
How much does counselling cost?
Talking through your problems with a stranger can feel somewhat daunting, so it goes without saying that choosing the right therapist is really important. For this reason, I offer all new clients the opportunity to have an informal chat with me, at a reduced rate of £20.00, so that we can discuss what you'd like to achieve through counselling - and to see if you'll feel comfortable working with me as your counsellor. This session would last up to an hour.
Once you're happy, and we've agreed to put some sessions into the diary, I charge £45.00 per session for individuals and £60.00 per session for couples. When working with Lifespan Integration, however, I charge £55.00 per hour, up to a maximum of £75.00, as these sessions can take up to 1.5 hours.
For the duration of the pandemic, you would need to find a suitable, private place within the comfort of your own home, where you're not going to be disturbed. However, I usually work from home on the north side of Swindon, Wiltshire, and use a private room which is dedicated to counselling. This room has its own entrance on the left hand side of the house, and parking should be available outside of this door. If not, please feel free to park on the driveway in front of the house - and then proceed round to the door on the left.
