About me and my therapy practice
The word SONAS means happy and that's my aim, to help people who are experiencing mental health difficulties to help themselves and to become happy again. If you need to talk to someone that really listens and understands your worries, someone who gives you the full attention you desire, and someone who will treat you in a professional, respectful, and in a non-judgmental way, I'm here for you. My specialism in counselling is facial differences and associated problems - depression, anxiety, stigma, low self-esteem, and suicidal ideations.
Practice descriptionI can provide a warm and safe space in which you can share your challenges in your own words and at a pace at which you are comfortable. I am a friendly, caring, and easily approachable counsellor who really wants to help people experiencing difficulties that the world throws at them.
My first session
What happens during our first session?
The initial session (usually 50 minutes) is an opportunity for you to talk at your own pace, about what brings you to therapy, to share what you want to achieve, and gain a sense of what our working relationship would look like. You can see if you feel comfortable enough to continue and if so, we can arrange a second session, and then we can continue as long as it works for you. The number of counselling sessions you receive will be tailored to meet your individual needs. Some move forward quickly while others benefit from a slower pace of counselling.
