People often come to therapy when they're feeling lost, anxious or disconnected. There are times when everyone faces difficulties or feels vulnerable, and psychotherapy can be used to explore your anxieties, feelings or distress without judgement. Through our relationship and the therapy it is hoped that, over time, you will reach an understanding and acceptance of the issues you bring and achieve a happier way of life.
Therapy is always tailored to suit every individual and I adhere to the Code of Ethics and Professional Practice laid down by the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).
I'm Megan Tomlin and I'm a BACP Registered Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist working in Lancashire. I have a post graduate diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy and am currently completing my Masters. Alongside my private practice, I also volunteer as a Psychotherapist for a charitable organisation in Bolton. I previously worked in further education and lived for many years in Italy before returning to continue my training in counselling and psychotherapy.
It can take great courage to come to therapy and I offer a warm, confidential and safe space for you to talk about how you're feeling. I deal with a diverse range of issues including but not limited to relationship problems, loss, grief and bereavement, self-confidence and self-esteem, depression, bullying, addiction and trauma. With understanding, sensitive challenge and support, I believe that positive change and growth are possible.
I work from a comfortable and safe office in Horwich with easy access to motorways.
I am an integrative psychotherapist which means that one size does not fit all; I am flexible in how I work depending on your individual needs. Our work may explore early relationships and childhood experiences and how they impact you today, or we may focus more on the here and now and how you function in different environments.
This experience will be about your journey, and you will never be made to do anything that you are not comfortable with. I work at your pace, and can offer both long and short-term psychological support depending on your requirements.
Short term counselling is usually six to twelve sessions.
'Counselling and psychotherapy are umbrella terms that cover a range of talking therapies. They are delivered by trained practitioners who work with people over a short or long term to help them bring about effective change or enhance their wellbeing' (BACP, 2014)
Some of the issues I have experience of working with are:
Email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or call me on 07542 945388 to have an initial free telephone consultation.
If we decide to work together we will then meet once a week at a mutually agreed regular time for a 50 minute session. I will also explain the terms for us working together to ensure it is as effective as possible. These terms include confidentiality, missed sessions, fees, holidays and ending our therapy together.
Fees are £45.00 per session. Some concessions may be available.
