About me and my therapy practice
I am a humanistic integrative counsellor working with adults in West Cumbria. I use a broad range of approaches to support my clients to create the changes they are looking for in their lives. My integrative training allows me to create a unique service for each person
I offer both in person and on-line sessions in a number of locations in South West Cumbria. I have experience of short and long term therapy with anyone who wants to effect a change in their lives.
I am a registered member of the BACP, DBS cleared, insured and have regular 1:1 supervision.
Clients usually begin with an initial half hour conversation followed by weekly one-hour sessions.
I offer both in person and on-line sessions in a number of locations in South West Cumbria.
If you need to cancel a session please give me a minimum of 48 hours' notice, otherwise the full session fee is payable unless due to an emergency. Payment is easy via bank transfer on the morning of the session.
My first session
The first session is usually a half hour assessment which consists of a few questions regarding the problem you would like to work on and broader questions about your well being and family history. This will verbal and include an assessment of risk. I normally then suggest we both take a week to consider if we are a good fit and can work together and then offer an initial 10 sessions contract with the opportunity to renew for an open ended contract after that.
Everybody is different and the first session includes the opportunity for us to begin to get to know each other and for me to learn what you want out of therapy, as well as what works best for you.
