During the current crisis I have some availability on Wednesdays and Thursdays for clients looking for online or telephone counselling using Zoom.
About me and my therapy practice
I seek to provide a warm, non-judgmental relationship in which trust can grow, so that you can feel able to discuss whatever is troubling you, no matter how painful or difficult. I am an experienced, qualified counsellor and I will facilitate helping you to explore and better understand your own situation and your thoughts, feelings, responses and desires. A deeper understanding of yourself can then help you to discover your way forward. I sometimes include elements of CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) if appropriate, which can help to identify and challenge patterns of thinking that may be holding you back. Often being our own harshest critic compounds our suffering and I can help you learn to be a better friend to yourself which will help you to build resilience and find greater peace.
I am currently offering online (via Zoom) or telephone counselling. When lockdown restrictions are lifted I will resume face-to-face counselling at my home near Ross-on-Wye in Herefordshire when it is safe to do so.
My first session
During this session we will explore the difficulties you are experiencing and what you want from counselling. I will ask you to complete an assessment questionnaire (CORE), used widely in the NHS, to assist in this process. At the end of the session we can discuss what we might look at in future sessions and agree more appointment times.
