About me and my therapy practice
I use a relational humanistic approach in my counselling practice based on Transactional Analysis. This is supported by my background of 30 years as a specialist nurse and educationalist. I work within the BACP ethic framework with an emphasis on valuing the client’s autonomy as the central focus.
I work with clients who have come to counselling for a variety of reasons. This includes bereavement, anxiety and relationship problems as well as those seeking support to resolve or manage long term issues that have led to psychological distress through to HE student study stress. I also work with clients that have long term health concerns such as women managing the challenges of menopause, through to specialist situational client circumstances e.g., suffering from the physical and psychological impact of having been a patient or relative to a patient in Intensive Care.
My first session
The first session will be orientated around making contact with you and beginning the process of looking at what has brought you to counselling.
We will also discuss the practical issues of counselling such as arranging sessions, working safely and payments for sessions.
The first session is also your opportunity to see if you feel comfortable with me as your therapist and to ask any questions.
