My clients are offered a safe space to be heard as well as hands-on image-making, other creative activities, and dialogue. I will be there to support you in your process of recovery, improvement or to come to terms with those things that cannot be changed.  We will have an ongoing conversation throughout the processes with regard to the counseling itself and the impact it’s having, to ensure a safe and secure environment for your engagement in your personal process.

My first session

Your first session will be about why you are looking for therapy; what you want to achieve from the therapy, and agreeing how you and I are going to work together. 

 We will go through a number of questions to help decide whether we will both be comfortable working together and to check that you can be offered the most appropriate support. 

(If the answer is no I can then refer you to a more appropriate service.)

If the answer is yes, then we will discuss confidentiality, times, dates and length of counselling, price of the sessions, how I work & my qualifications, BACP ethical framework and safeguarding. 

You will also be able to ask me any questions that you may have about counselling and the process.

If you are happy to go ahead with the counselling we will then co-create an agreement together.
