About me and my therapy practice
Hello, I offer Counselling and Psychotherapy in central Kirriemuir.
My aim as a therapist is to build a relationship of trust and security with clients. This kind of relationship allows us to explore present troubles, consider the ways the past influences us and find hope for the future.
A therapeutic relationship of this kind can enable you to identify ways of making sense of where you find yourself, what’s going on within you, and around in your relationships. Therapy provides us with the supportive relationship we need to make the changes we want to or find the understanding and compassion for ourselves that we need to. It can give us the space to allow processing and healing from past traumas, and get us out of those stuck patterns that we find ourselves in.
After qualifying as a counsellor I worked at an agency where I had experience working with an amazing, diverse group of clients presenting with a wide variety of issues. I then decided to further develop my understanding of how our problems develop and are maintained by going on to study Transactional Analysis. I was keen to find out how to achieve growth and healing at a much deeper level allowing the individual to flourish. This led me to undertake a Diploma in Intergrative Psychotherapy that I hope to successfully attain this year.
When you first contact me, I will respond to you by the same means and I aim to do so within 24 hours. We can then arrange a time to meet or talk at a mutually agreeable convenient and private time. I offer that first 30-40 minute consultation free of charge. This is an opportunity for you to talk about some of the difficulties you are experiencing and ask any questions you may have. I will ask some questions about your expectations and explain a bit about how I work. It also allows us the opportunity to decide if I am the right therapist for you. If not, I can refer you on to a colleague more suited to meet your needs.
