About me and my therapy practice

 I believe passionately in the counselling process but I also believe that the timing is as important as the therapy itself. When we reach the decision to seek counselling it is then that we are ready to really engage. I will make every effort to see all new clients within 3 working days of initial contact. I work with almost all types of issues accepting the client wherever they may be, with whatever they may bring and being there for them. Exploring and reflecting together will enhance the healing process encouraging self awareness and the discovery of those inner resources that we all have.

Practice description

As well as face to face counselling, I can also offer sessions using Skype or Zoom.

My first session

At our first session I suggest that we have an informal chat to begin with. This gives you the opportunity to explain what it is that you hope to get from the therapy and I can explain how I work.

If you're happy to proceed, we can then continue with the first session then and there. I usually allow and extra 15 minutes.

However, if you decide that you wouldn't like to work with me, or would prefer to go away and think about it, that's absolutely fine and there is no charge.
