Counselling service based in Surrey & Hampshire near Ascot, Camberley, Chobham, Farnborough, Lightwater, Sunningdale, Odiham, Hook, Basingstoke & Woking. Covering Surrey Heath on the Surrey, Hampshire and Berkshire borders.
Hello and a very warm welcome to my website. My name is Emma-Jane LaRoche and I am a BACP registered counsellor based on the Surrey /Hampshire/ Berkshire borders.
Written below is a brief explanation of the type of counselling I provide, what counselling is and how it can help. I hope you will find this helpful.
I am a Humanistic counsellor/therapist providing counselling and therapeutic services based on Transactional Analysis and work with people of all ages. I also offer Animal Assisted Therapy at my Odiham practice on a case by case basis .
As a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I abide by their Code of Ethics and Good Practice.
What is counselling?
Counselling is a type of talking therapy which gives people the opportunity to talk through their thoughts and feelings in a confidential and safe environment with a trained counsellor who uses different therapeutic approaches.
My therapeutic approach is Humanistic counselling based on Transactional Analysis.
"Counsellors don't offer advice but help clients to see things more clearly and to make positive changes in their lives"
Do you sometimes feel hopeless, lost, stuck or trapped?
Do you feel betrayed , not knowing what to do or who to turn to?
How can counselling help?
Sometimes in life, feeling overwhelmed, with no sense of direction can be the point at which we feel that professional help may be what’s needed.
It’s not always that easy to talk through issues with friends and family.
"Taking that first step towards counselling can be daunting for some but bring a sense of relief to others. It can help make matters more clear without feeling judged or pressured"
As a counsellor/therapist I can provide space and time for you to talk through your difficulties where you can be heard in a warm, non-judgemental, caring, friendly and respectful manner.
I offer a free 10 - 15 minute introductory telephone call so that we can decide together whether counselling is right for you .
Some issues I work with
Relationship/marriage issues - present and historical
Stress - work, personal life, exams
Low self - confidence
Hurt & anger
Decision making and life changes
Loss - redundancy/ disability/miscarriage
What to expect
Each counselling session lasts 50 minutes and in the initial meeting we talk about what has brought you to counselling.
An assessment will be carried out in the first session where I will ask some questions and then explain how the counselling process works.
It will give you the opportunity to ask questions and discuss any worries and concerns you may have and then between us we agree to the frequency and time that these sessions will take place.
My practice in Lightwater (Surrey) is located just off Junction 3 of the M3 and is approximately 10 mins from both the M4 and M25.
My practice in Odiham (Hampshire) is located approximately 5 minutes from Junction 5 (Hook) off the M3.
There is plenty of parking and disabled access for wheelchairs available at both locations.
Each 50 minute session costs £50.
I ask that payment is made either in advance or at each individual session.
Times and days of the week are flexible so please feel free to contact me to arrange an appointment or your free introductory 15 minute phone consultation to discuss whether I can be of any help.
