About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified integrative counsellor (MBACP) and mindfulness teacher. I have a background in Psychology (BSc) and I have been trained in different therapeutic models and methods incorporating humanistic, psychodynamic, CBT and existential/mindfulness practises so that counselling can be tailored to your individual needs and difficulties. I believe everyone is unique and my aim is to offer a safe, therapeutic, non-judgemental relationship where I hope you will feel heard, understood and accepted so that you can heal through your pain and move forward with your life.
Currently I am offering counselling services online. Working online requires an additional set of competencies which I have received specific training for.
Online counselling can be a convenient way for accessing counselling and it can also be helpful for bringing issues which may feel challenging in a face to face setting. Many but not all difficulties can be worked with online. Some of the difficulties I work with include but are not limited to; anxiety and depression, loss and bereavement, relationship and work related difficulties, trauma and abuse, stress management and difficulties with self-esteem.
Finding the right counsellor for you is important and I offer an initial 20-30 minute initial free consultation to explore suitability and if you would feel comfortable working together.
My first session
Our initial appointment will include some questions to explore and help my understanding of how I can best help you and so we can both agree on a way forward.
We will agree upon an appointment time ideally to be held at the same day and time every week.
I offer both time limited and open ended counselling. The former is where we both agree upon a specific number of sessions to work together at the outset, and the latter is where there is no firm end date.
We will use a secure and encrypted platform called zoom for our meetings. I can offer some basic information regarding how to use the platform if required, along with some guidance for privacy and confidentiality.
