About me and my therapy practice
With over 20 years experince working in the NHS and private sector, I am a fully qualified person centred counsellor. I describe myself overall as an integrative counsellor, adapting my skills for the personal needs of the individual. I have experience of CBT, as well as various other models of delivering therapy and use these as helping 'tools' to suit your needs. I am also a mindfuIness teacher and as such, I am able to offer mindfulness as relaxation or in a more structured mode. When you have a session with me, you will have a safe place to explore your issues judgement free. I respect and prize each person who comes into therapy and all matters will be treated with utmost confidentiality and discretion. I am here to listen and support you through your time of need.
I am an experienced therapist who is available to work with a large range of personal problems, emotional distress and concerns. I work mostly one to one but am happy to consider working with a couple or other family member if it is deemed helpful. I am able to work face to face, by telephone or skype and would also consider other formats.
My first session
In our first session, you will be required to complete some simple paperwork and we will discuss and agree our contract of working together. We use this session as a getting to know each other as well as learning about your difficulty and how best to approach this.
I charge £20 for this first session which gives you the opportunity to decide if you wish to engage in therapy at a lower cost. I offer some reductions for student counsellors.
