About me and my therapy practice
I now work from home on-line (on Zoom) and can be more flexible than before about times and days for sessions.
I had been working with on-line counselling for some time before the pandemic and found it to be very satisfactory - as did my clients - and this is supported by research which suggests that there is no difference in outcome between on-line and in-person counselling. I understand that Zoom is a secure and confidential platform.
I place great emphasis in my work on attentive listening; and you can be assured that you will be heard and accepted in my therapy. I work from a person-centred basis, (which means making you the focus of the work, and believing that we all have the ability to change and develop good mental health), as well as using other techniques, (such as psychodynamic and existential approaches and others), depending on what clients bring to therapy. You can bring any issue to the sessions for consideration and exploration. I will help you to examine the issue you bring and think about its role in the past and present for you, through reflection and supportive challenge. Together we will work on helping you understand what is really going on for you, and I will support you in making creative choices for the future which will help you move on, keeping you firmly in the driving seat for your decisions.
