About me and my therapy practice
We all can have times in our lives when events in the present or issues from the past overwhelm us. At these times finding a skilled therapist can help, enabling us to find inner resources to withstand and make sense of what we are dealing with. My counselling approach is to listen to the issues you are experiencing, enabling greater understanding of their origins and ways you may engage with them, finding emotional resiliance and clarity. We can also explore therapeutic approaches that can be helpful in working with trauma, anxiety, grief and loss.
My approach is person centred, where psychological labels are resisted. Some therapeutic tools such as Transactional Analyssis and CBT can be of help and may be introduced if appropriate.
My first session
The first session is free so that you can consider whether counselling and my approach are what you are looking for. I will inform you of the kinds of issues we are likely to explore and what approaches may be of benefit in working with your difficulties. I will need to ask for some basic information such as address and contact details etc. during this session.
