About me and my therapy practice
I am a BACP Accredited counsellor working in private practice. I work both in short term (min. 6 weeks) and long term contracts, both online and face to face. I will usually have an initial phone chat with you and if we agree find a time for your first session. I will meet you at the entrance and make sure that you feel safe. I will explain the framework of therapy so that you can start building a trusting relationship with me.
I am a Humanistic practitioner and my modalities are Person Centred, Transactional Analyses and Gestalt. I also have an existential focus. My background is in sports so I put great emphasis on self care through encouraging you to have a holistic approach to your therapeutic journey. I believe that it is the trusting relationship between you and me that will support your self discovery. We will examine your belief system, often based on childhood decisions, the patterns you employ in your life and explore ways of being more empowered and making choices that serve your growth.
My first session
I work in a beautiful light room. During the first session I will encourage you tell me as much as you can about yourself and what you are hoping to get out of therapy. It usually takes a few sessions for me to have a treatment plan and we will then discuss the focus of your therapy and the time that might be needed for it. You will be encouraged to ask questions.
