About me and my therapy practice

Life can feel really difficult at times. Has something bad happened to you? Have you lost someone you love? Are you feeling sad, stressed, worried or finding it difficult to cope? Are your relationships going wrong? You don't have to struggle alone. I offer person-centred and creative counselling and psychotherapy in the heart of Bromsgrove, Worcestershire. I can help you to explore your worries, finding a way forward that is right for you.

I offer short and long-term counselling and psychotherapy to adults and young people over 16. I also offer the opportunity to work creatively, as well as in a more traditional way, through talking. This can give you additional ways to express and work through your feelings.

I have experience of working with a wide range of issues, and experience of working in general counselling agencies, primary schools and at a hospice.

Please visit my website www.marylim.co.uk if you would like to know more, or contact me to arrange an initial appointment or an informal discussion on the phone.

Practice description

I am offering online and telephone counselling sessions during the current social distancing measures.

My first session

Face to Face Counselling

The first session is an assessment session, and an opportunity to see if I am the right counsellor for you.

We will complete my client agreement, which sets out the practicalities of counselling with me, and my privacy policy, which sets out what data I collect from you, why, and how I store your data. After this, I will take some details from you (contact details, GP, DOB etc).

We will then talk about what's caused you to seek counselling, and what you'd like to get out of counselling with me. If you're comfortable, we'll start to talk around the issues.

It's important that you feel comfortable with whoever you choose as your counsellor, and it's important for me to make sure I'm the right counsellor for you. If I feel a different method of counselling would suit your particular problem better, or if I feel you would benefit from a more specialised service, I will tell you, and refer you on if you would like me to.

There is no obligation to continue counselling with me if you choose not to after the first session.

Online and Telephone Counselling

When working online or on the telephone, I will send you my client agreement and privacy policy in advance of the first session, and ask you to sign them and send them back to me. I will also ask you to complete my assessment form with your personal details, and a few questions about what has led you to seek counselling prior to our first session.

During the first session, if you have any questions about these documents, we will talk through them, and as with face to face work, we will talk through what has caused you to seek counselling, as well as what you'd like to get out of counselling with me.

As with face to face counselling, the first session is an opportunity to see if I am the right counsellor for you. There is no obligation to continue if you choose not to.
