About me and my therapy practice
I am a psychotherapeutic counsellor working in the Weybridge area both in the private and voluntary sectors.
I understand that when people are considering counselling they want to know what might be involved and the support they might need to help them with their difficulties or better manage their life.
I am an 'Integrative' psychotherapist. This means that I am not tied to one model of therapy but combine aspects of several models, to fit the needs of each client.
I see individual clients and couples in my home, providing a safe, comfortable and confidential environment in which to build a relationship of trust and openness.
If you are in a relationship and feel you need to speak to someone then I am happy to see you on an individual basis or as a couple to explore what might be happening for you and work with you both to gain a better insight to how your individual behaviours impact and playout within the relationship.
Our first session gives us the opportunity to explore what might be troubling you and how we may wish to work together and whether counselling is the best approach to support you. This introductory session may feel daunting, but it can be the first step towards seeking help.
Clients come to me because they want to talk in a warm, confidential and empathetic setting to express their concerns, resolve ingrained patterns of behaviour and learn how to make alternative choices.
I have experience in helping people explore and come to terms with many issues: low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, loss, self-harming behaviour, stress and making life choices.
In helping clients to gain insight around their issues and to make changes, I have worked with people of different sexual orientation, of all age groups and from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds.
I use my own life experience and training to support individuals with understanding their patterns of behaviour and discover what they might be seeking.
My first session
Therapeutic counselling is a holistic approach that seeks to integrate all parts of the personality, helping individuals to start his or her journey towards living life more fully.
I work with clients on both a short (8-12 weeks) and long term (open ended) basis depending upon their needs; this is something that we would discuss at our initial meeting.
I mainly operate from my counselling room in the evenings & weekends as well as limited availability in the daytime.
