About me and my therapy practice

Hello, my name is Hannah and I'm a qualified Integrative Counsellor with a Master of Arts from the University of Roehampton. This means that I have been trained in three different therapeutic models; Person Centred, CBT and the Psychodynamic approach, allowing me to tailor the way in which I work to best meet the needs of my client.

I offer face to face sessions, either at the Nautilus Rooms in Totnes or I provide walk and talk sessions at a handful of rural locations in and around the Totnes/Ashburton/Newton Abbot area.

Practice description

The concept of approaching a stranger and exploring your inner most feelings and emotions can feel quite alien but therapy can provide a safe and facilitated space to explore yourself without judgement. Whether you are dealing with relationship issues, the loss of a loved one, coping with anxiety, depression or stress, therapy can help you take a step back and explore your emotions in a safe and contained way.

At the heart of my practice is the emphasis I place on the therapeutic relationship and our sessions together will be a collaborative process of self exploration, where warmth, understanding and empathy provide the basis of my work.

Because of this I work mainly using the Person Centred approach, which prizes each client as an individual and allows the client autonomy over their sessions. This means that I am led by you and the direction you would like our sessions to go in. 

I will offer periodic reviews, where we can reflect on the topics/areas covered and how you are experiencing the sessions together. These are your sessions and it's important that we regularly check in with each other. 

Confidentiality is paramount during counselling work. Meaning that what is said during our sessions, stays between you and I. I will make brief, factual counselling notes but there will be no way of identifying you in these notes. 

Sessions are 50 minutes long and can be held either at the Nautilus Rooms in Totnes or we can walk while we talk, at a handful of rural locations in the local area. 

My first session

First sessions are slightly longer at 60 minutes. I will send an assessment form to you via email prior to our session, which is an opportunity for me to learn a little bit more about you prior to our first session.
