About me and my therapy practice
My name is Ben Adams (MBACP) and i work as a person centred therapist. I work face to face, online and by phone and like to think my flexibility both in the way i deliver and when i can do so allow you to fit in our sessions that best suit you. Life can be busy!
I work with warmth , compassion and provide a private, non-judgemental space that allows you to bring whatever you wish in to the therapeutic space.
My sole focus is on you when you are with me, you control the space. Where you want to go, i will follow. Finding a therapist you trust is so important, certainly if you want to speak with absolute honesty and in trust ( when i had therapy, this was the most important aspect for me, finding that right person where we would click) and I totally get this.
Feel free to give me a call and chat about what it is you want from therapy and in that private space. I hope to be able to ‘be that person’ for you.
One thing about me i can say in sincerest honesty, whatever you bring, however you feel, i will walk alongside you, every step of the way.
I am a person-centred therapist, meaning that at all times, i put YOU at the centre of everything we do together. This is the focus and absolute goal of our time together.
I will not tell you what to do or how to think, or what the right answer ‘ should be’. I believe you know what is best for you. My role is to work in partnership with you as we discuss what those goals, that issue, the feeling you are carrying look like from a fresh and outside perspective.
Your experience of life and all within it are yours alone and different from anyone else’s. I want to learn about what that means to you, how you feel, how you think, your worries, anxieties and hopes are. The space i provide allows you to bring those in total confidentiality and honesty, if you need to get something out, to discuss something in trust and compassion, I’ll be here to offer that for you in a calm, private space..

My first session
So you’ve taken that decision, and here we are during our first time together. So many questions ( i remember i had lots during my own therapy).
Out first contact will be talking to you about what i offer and to see if you feel we are a good fit to work together. The relationship you have with me, or any therapist, is everything and I’m very aware of this. You have to feel comfortable and it has to be worth your time.
We can chat for a while, free of charge and then if you want to proceed, we’ll book our first session where we will briefly go over a contract where i explain how confidentiality works and what our boundaries are to make you feel safe and comfortable.
You decide how many sessions you want, and you can stop at any time, remember, you control this, not me.
