About me and my therapy practice
I am predominantly a person centred trained counsellor with twenty years experience working in the NHS as well as in the private sector . 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 the needs of the person. I respect and prize each person who comes into therapy and will treat them with utmost confidentiality.
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 using skype and would possibly consider other formats. I am also a mindfulness teacher and am able to offer mindfulness as relaxation or in a more formal mode.
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 and learning about your difficulty and how best to approach this.
I charge half price 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.
