About me and my therapy practice
If you are struggling with anxiety, relationship problems, depression, low self-esteem, addiction problems and more, then you will no doubt find psychotherapy and counselling very helpful. If you are struggling with any of these problems, then I know the isolating pain they can cause, but I have seen depression turn to joy, despair into hope and self-hatred into self-love. It is very important that you feel safe and comfortable and that is why I offer a £20 first session (initial assessment) to start with, so you can see if I am the right person for you. If I think I am not the right person for you, I will point you in the right direction.
Being real and honest with someone in a trustworthy setting can be a great healer. My areas of expertise include recovery from addiction (drugs, alcohol, sex, gambling etc.) recovery from depression, anxiety, anger issues, childhood trauma, shame and much more. I ask you at the start what your goals are and we agree a plan going forward.
If you are feeling anxiety, confusion, hurt, anger, shame, depression, fear or struggling with an addiction, then I suggest you are kind, gentle and loving towards yourself by taking a risk and starting the process of change.
I am integrative in my approach, meaning I tailor the sessions towards you, drawing on many approaches for example Cognitive Behavioural Theory, Psychodynamic and much more.
My first session
The first session is usually £20 (fifty Minutes) and I will try to make you feel at ease (as you can imagine, people are often nervous). I will ask you what your issues are and what you hope to gain from counselling as a starting point and you may have some questions you want to ask me. I will try and give you an idea of what I can do to help you. If I think I am not the right person for you I will point you in the right direction. At the end of the session, I will ask if you would to book another session or go away and think about it and come back to me later.
