About me and my therapy practiceTaking that step towards counselling can at times be a daunting one and finding the right therapist for you is important in this process. I am a qualified counsellor/therapist and I work using an integrative approach which enables me to use different aspects of various approaches in a way that is tailored to suit each individual need. I am BACP registered and I have several years’ experience working with clients of different ages. I work in both private and NHS settings and I am able to offer telephone and online counselling.
I am an integrative counsellor so I work using different approaches depending on each individual client need. I use the person centred approach so each counselling session can be led by the client and work in a way that suits each client. I will also use the psychodynamic approach which includes exploring defence mechanisms and exploring how past experiences affect what is going on for the client in their life now. I also have experience of using the cognitive behavioural approach to help with issues around phobias.
My first sessionMy first session would involve discussing with my client what would be involved in the counselling. I would also carry out a short initial assessment to get an idea of what has brought the client to counselling at this point in their lives and asking what goals they would like to achieve from counselling.
