About me and my therapy practice

I offer a warm, confidential and non-judgemental space to explore what is going on for you, making sense of it all and finding your best way forward. You will choose the topics you want to talk about, and I will help you through this therapeutic process. This way of talking therapy is known as person-centred therapy, however, as I am trained in a variety of therapeutic approaches, I may make use of different therapeutic techniques throughout the course of therapy as appropriate to your benefit.

''Philipp was so easy to chat to and he fully understood my issues and how to help me deal with them. I found the whole process to be very effective and I've been amazed by the difference in my quality of life... I wish I'd done this years ago..." - C.R.

"Philipp, Thanks for your support over the past few weeks. It has been so different from my previous experiences and is much appreciated" - D.T.

Practice description

My practice is a spacious, quite and comfortable room located on the ground floor of my home (2 meters from the entrance).  Plenty of parking spaces are available near the entrance.

My first session

The initial session is free. You will have the opportunity to tell me about yourself, what brought you to counselling, as well as your goals and expectations of therapy. We will go through the therapy contract and complete an initial assessment for us to compare to at the next review (usually at session 5). 

I do ask for a deposit of £40 to be paid before that session.  I will, of course, return the deposit after that session or if you prefer you can use it as payment for a future session.
