About me and my therapy practice
As an Integrative counsellor I work with a range of theoretical backgrounds, which enable me to create a framework by which I can tailor our work together to suit your needs.
Our sessions together will each last for 50 minutes, and the length of therapy will depend on your individual circumstances, and your desired outcome.
I have found that for therapy to be most effective our working relationship is very important. You should feel safe in order to be honest and open, as there will be sensitive issues and feelings to be disclosed and worked through.
I also aim for you to be comfortable enough to discuss how you feel about our therapeutic relationship.
Whatever your reasons for entering counselling I remain impartial but understanding. I will work with you without judgment as we explore your emotions and thoughts. I may well offer you information, but I won't tell you what to do.
My first session
In our first session we will properly introduce ourselves to each other, and it is important that you feel that you can ask me any questions that you would like answering about our work together.
We will make an agreement about the time and days for future sessions. I will explain how confidentiality, boundaries and ethics work in counselling.
I usually inquire about your current problems, and if they are entirely new to you, or if what you are experiencing goes further back.
