About me and my therapy practice
Having worked in schools and youth setting for many years, I have current and extensive experience of the issues faced by young people and by those who have young people in their lives. Working in a collaborative and humanistic way, I believe in helping to explore every individual's potential. I offer a safe and confidential space and have always worked in a highly sensitive manner, understanding that absolute discretion is vital. I am trained in a number of different counselling modalities and will work in an integrative way, using methods most appropriate to you.
Every person I meet has their own unique set of needs and communication style. For some, the thought of counselling can be quite daunting, for others quite exciting. I will "meet" you wherever you are on this continuum and we will work at a pace that you are comfortable with.
My first session
In our first session I will outline our counselling contract and how I work, you will also be able to ask any questions that you may have. Our first session is really important as it gives you the opportunity to get a feel of how we might work together. I offer a reduced rate for this session as I feel that it is important to recognize that it is a trial session. For under 18s I meet with a parent or guardian for the first 10 minutes of the first session and they are present when I go through the contract and also have the opportunity to ask questions. After this the remainder of the session belongs to the young person. This is true of both online and face to face sessions.
