About me and my therapy practice
I will be counselling by telephone or zoom at the moment until it is safe to work face to face.
I started my training in 2003 and qualified as a Psychodynamic Counsellor in 2008. I gained my accreditation in 2011. I am trained in short term focused and open ended counselling. I have a certificate in Child Psychology and Motivational Interviewing Technique. I am fully insured. If you believe that the issues you have now are related to your past, then this may be the kind of counselling that will suit you. Together we can explore and locate where the issue has come from. We cannot change the past but we can gain an understanding and it is then that we can find a way forward. Every one is unique and so is their issue. If you would like to have an informal chat to see if we could work together, give me a call.
My consulting room is in my home. It is private and we will not be interrupted. There is a lavatory for your use. I can provide water but you are welcome to bring your own refreshments. I live near a village where there are places to park your car. There is also a bus stop outside my house.
My first session
In our initial session, I will go through our contract and confidentiality agreement. I will expect your phone to be turned off during this session and future sessions. However, should you need to be contacted during our session please let me know and leave your phone on if desired. We will be filling out an assessment form. This will cover your personal details, your doctor's details and your history. In this session, you can ask me any questions that are relevant to your counselling. If you feel comfortable enough to work together we can then decide on a time and day for our first session. If you decide you do not want to continue, I will shred the assessment or you can take it with you. There is no charge for this session.
