About me and my therapy practice
I am an experienced psychotherapeutic counsellor. I have worked for a Bristol agency for several years alongside a variety of individual clients, and couples, with a focus on family, work and relational issues.
Counselling provides a therapeutic space to create opportunities to effect change. My original Therapeutic training was Humanistic with a person centred ethos. I then developed a more integrative approach through further training. I draw on elements from several other modalities which I think are most suited to an individual clients needs.
My first session
For potential clients who are unsure if counselling is the right way forward, or for those who would like to understand how I work in more detail, I offer our first meeting together as an assessment. If appropriate, we will meet face to face and consider the issues to be explored and I can answer any questions and discuss any concerns in context. An assessment meeting gives us the opportunity to consider and discuss whether we can work together in a collaborative way. If we choose to go ahead we will agree an estimated time scale. Six to twelve sessions may be adequate to work through a particular issue but sometimes longer term work is indicated. If I feel it more appropriate for a referral to be made elsewhere, I will discuss this with you.
Assessment meetings are in the form of a 30 minute consultation and are charged at a reduced rate of £20.
