About me and my therapy practice

Whatever you are struggling with - anxiety, depression, low self worth, anger, lack of motivation, unwanted behaviours of all sorts (too much/too little food, exercise, drugs, sex), ultimately it's about the things you have been through in life that made those behaviours your best choices at the time. But now they are unhelpful. That's where our work begins. Understanding the forces underlying these behaviours, thoughts or feelings is the key to making other choices possible now and in the future.

Practice description

How do you decide to get counselling? Is it meant for someone like you struggling with whatever is going on for you right now? Or is it for others, people with real problems. Maybe you feel you are too much, too difficult, or you can’t pin down just what the problem is. By now you may almost have talked yourself out of taking the next step and contacting me. I know how that feels. Chances are if you have got this far and are looking at counsellors, then there is something going on that’s worth us checking out, don’t you think?

My first session

Our first session gives you the opportunity to check me out - do I seem the sort of person you could imagine trusting with your thoughts and feelings, your troubling behaviours? Do I seem compassionate? Curious but not judgmental? Accepting? A safe pair of hands? 

Only then we will agree a regular meeting time, whether face to face, video counselling or phone.
