About me and my therapy practice
Appointments are available online using Zoom, face to face in my counselling room, or by telephone.
I offer long term , short term, or single session therapy for adults over 18.
I also offer couples and relationship counselling
I am an integrative counsellor , offering me a wide range of counselling skills ready to adapt to the needs of individual clients, This could be short term counselling, for example to help reduce anxiety or stress. It could be longer term counselling to explore past issues which are having a negative affect on your life and happiness now, or life coaching to help you seek fulfilment in your life .
My aim is to work with my clients to form a strong counselling relationship between us, building trust, honesty, and mutual respect in order to provide an environment of open exploration into whatever is troubling you.
Appointments are available face to face, or online via Zoom. I also offer telephone sessions . I still use my therapy room for these sessions . This offers the same ‘ feel’ for those used to coming in person , and ensures my space is confidential.
For visiting clients , I have easy parking on the drive or across the road . Access to the therapy room is via a staircase . Non gender Toilet facilities are available .
My first session
0ur initial contact will be via email please.
I find most people want to begin their counselling journey as soon as possible, however I also offer a free brief initial online chat if you feel you want to meet me before making your first counselling appointment. Please let me know if you would like this free initial online meeting .
Once you have decided to start your counselling, we will arrange a mutually convenient time to start our counselling sessions. I will send you all the information you will need via email.
For telephone appointments I usually make the call at our agreed time, however if you prefer to call me, this is fine too.
For face to face sessions, I will send you full details of how to get to me. Parking is easy , and free. There is a non gender specific toilet immediately available on arrival . I follow Covid safe protocol at all times
For online sessions, I will send you the ‘link’ to the online session on the day before via email. When it is time for your appointment, all you need to do is ‘click’ on the link within the email to take you straight to your counselling session. It’s very easy, and no technical skill is required
If there is a technical problem during the online session, and either of use lose internet connection, we will continue our session via telephone, FaceTime or similar. We will discuss your preferred back up plan at our first session.
I will be in my counselling room during your session. This is a quiet and confidential space. It is important you can find a quiet and confidential space for yourself to engage in your session.
Your first appointment will be a full counselling session, rather than an assessment, though you will also have the opportunity to identify what you want to achieve from counselling and clarify anything you are unsure of.
