About me and my therapy practice
You have it in you to create the best that you can from your circumstances. Counselling is about change, so we will find out what has brought you to counselling, what you want to change. We take all the time you need to explore how you feel about things. With support, you can assimilate negative feelings as part of your life. You can feel their hold over you lessening, and see more expansive, creative paths ahead.

I believe that change happens through a supportive healing relationship. Clients say it makes such a difference to have someone listening, not judging. We also slow things down, allowing you a safe and supportive space to realise that you are able to live with the emotions that have caused you difficulty, and you can come out the other side, seeing and experiencing your situation in a more confident and creative way.
My first session
Counselling helps you to take charge of your life, so I suggest we see the first session as a one off, giving you the chance to think about whether you would like to continue with this particular counsellor.
I will answer any questions you have about counselling and do a short questionnaire to find out how you have been feeling recently, then ask you briefly about your past life and what has brought you here. It is important to me to find out how the session has been for you, and give you the chance to go away and think what you want. If you decide to continue, we will look clarify what you want to change, and we'll look at my Counselling Agreement, so that you feel the safety of knowing what is or isn't on offer.
