About me and my therapy practiceI work through building a warm and supportive relationship with you which allows you space to explore the issues that are causing concern. As far as possible, I work in the ‘here and now’ using sensitive observations to help you to increase your awareness of yourself. With enhanced awareness, it is possible to discover those ‘hidden’ parts of oneself which can result in more satisfying work and family relationships. Together we can challenge unhelpful patterns of thought and behaviour which might be limiting your personal growth or keeping you 'stuck'. We will achieve this through a strong and supportive client-counsellor relationship in which an honest and open conversation can take place and you will have creative autonomy to find your own answers.
In normal times, I work in SE12 from my home practice and from the Complementary Health Centre in Lee which is close to Brockley, Lewisham, Catford, Grove Park, Blackheath and Eltham and surrounding areas in Lewisham and Bromley. However right now and as a response to the Covid-19 restrictions, I am offering distanced therapy via video link or, if you prefer, telephone.
My first session
The first session is an opportunity for us to meet and explore together the issues you are bringing and whether I can help. It is a time for me to take some background which will inform the therapy and my thinking and a time for you to ask questions about what therapy with me might be like. At this session we will also talk about whether you are seeking long or short term work although this can change as the work develops. The therapeutic relationship is vital to how the work progresses and so being as sure as you can be about your practitioner choice is really important. If I think you need a different sort of pathway I will discuss this with you and offer some onward referrals if I can.
