About me and my therapy practice
At times life can be difficult and choosing to engage in counselling takes courage. I believe we all have our own lived experiences, and you are the only person who knows how that feels. I am committed to working together at your own pace to understand what is going on, to actively listen and ensure you feel heard. It can be good to speak in confidence to someone impartial, who can listen without judgement, accept, and value you for who you are.
Therapy can help you develop an understanding of what is bothering you or causing distress, even when there is not an obvious reason. Through the counselling process I will aim to help you express your feelings and explore your experiences as I walk this journey alongside you.
My integrative approach focuses on psychodynamic, attachment and family systems which can help in understanding how past experiences informs the present.
My counselling practice is from my private residence in Newcastle-under-Lyme, where I have a separate confidential space for my therapy work. Based a few minutes off Junction 15 M6, A500, A50, parking is available.
I offer counselling evenings and weekends face to face or by telephone.
My first session
The initial session (assessment) is guided up to 90 minutes. It is an opportunity to discuss what has bought you to counselling and what you would like to achieve from it. We will discuss how we can work safely and effectively together and will explore the contract.
