About me and my therapy practice

Are you struggling to find support because you're currently isolated at home? I am trained to deliver online counselling, psychotherapy and supervision. Is there something that doesn't quite make sense that you, you and your partner or your child might like to explore? Do you feel stressed, anxious, depressed, confused, sad, alone or is something else bothering you? 

 

Did you know that everyone has reactive behaviours that happen automatically? Sometimes these can interfere with our lives and cause us distress even when they're not needed any more! Many people have found that these can be managed differently as they have developed more understanding about why they are occurring in our sessions. Regardless of age, many aspects of who and how we are and how we react towards people and situations, stem from our personal life experiences, the attachment patterns we have formed with the most significant people in our lives and our psychological development.

In light of the current situation I am working with clients online wherever possible, however, if remote therapy isn't possible for you then we can talk about possible options for working in a COVID-secure way. The choices about what is said and done in our sessions are yours and I will adapt my approach, drawing on various therapeutic models to meet your needs. For example you may wish to talk about something and explore it together one week but choose not to talk about it again, or you may want to talk about the same thing over and over. 

My fees are: £45 per 50 minute session for adults or 45 minute session per young person, £65 for 1 hour and 15 minutes per couple and £55 per hour for Supervisees. Concessions are available for students at certain times. Please ask for more information.

Thank you. 

Practice description

Due to Coronavirus I am currently offering either online or telephone sessions to individual adults, couples, young people and supervisees wherever it is possible and I am fully trained to work in this way. I use a safe online platform that is encrypted to military level. It is simple to set up and use and no-one can see or hear what we are saying to each other. You can have sessions via web cam on your Smart phone, Tablet, I-Pad, Laptop or Computer. I am also able to offer face to face sessions in a COVID-secure way if remote sessions are not an option for you, or once government guidelines have changed. 

My first session

This is a meeting where we have a chat about what might be bothering you or the person / people you are worried about. It is an opportunity for us to see whether my way of working and services would be the most suitable for your current needs or whether I might be able to point you in the direction for different support. There is no obligation after this initial session but we will have hopefully shared enough information to be able to decide whether seeing me again might be something you or your child might like to try. Please feel free to contact me, to talk about this further. Best wishes and take care, Anita :-)

About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I know how anxiety provoking it can be sharing details of situations that have happened in our field work and how difficult it can be when we're on our own and uncertain about what might be the next best choice of action. As the Coronavirus situation changes so are we and this is where maybe considering online supervision might be something you begin to explore? I am qualified to Level 6 with the cpcab in counselling supervision and I'm trained to provide online services. I aim to be available when I'm needed in a supportive, encouraging way but I will also offer exploration and enough challenge to help you grow in your own way in your counselling practices. My theoretical orientation is Integrative with Person-Centred theory as my core and I draw on knowledge from other approaches (Psychoanalytic, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt and some CBT) whenever appropriate. In Supervision this enables opportunities for a rich, reflective experience with multiple perspectives dependent on your theoretical background and the client's presentation. I am experienced in and able to supervise fully trained and student counsellors; psychotherapists working with CYP, adults and couples. I am able to work online via Webcam or (when social contact becomes safer once more) I am able to meet with you face to face in the Shrewsbury / Welshpool area. My fees are £50 per hour or £70 for 1.5 hours a month. Concessions are available for a students. To find out more without obligation, please give me a call or drop me an email. Best wishes, Anita

Practice description

I am currently working from home delivering online supervision via webcam or telephone supervision from my counselling room over in Shropshire. It does feel slightly different doing online supervision after face to face, but has advantages in that you have the option carry out your session on a Smart phone, tablet or other portable device in any confidential space without the need to allow travel time. It also enables you to choose someone who feels right for you rather than being limited to choosing someone just because they're local. If you'd like to give it a try then decide whether it's right for you, please feel free to contact me. Best wishes, Anita :-)

My first session

This is a no- obligation opportunity for us to have a chat and think together about our levels of experience, ways of working and expectations of each other if we were to work together in the future. There might be some questions we want to ask each other. We may want to understand what support might be helpful and ways we might manage this to address your & your clients needs. Maybe you have a new venture in mind that you would like to share in supervision, perhaps you might want to bounce some ideas around or try a new way of working in your practices? I have over 7 years of experience as a counsellor / psychotherapist working with clients aged from 5 years upwards and have trained in psychology and various theoretical orientations. I find this has been very useful when working in supervision with other counsellors / psychotherapists. Please feel free to contact me if you'd like further information. kind regards, Anita :-)
