About me and my therapy practice
So often, we only have a sense of things not being ‘right’; and we keep going, in the hopes that it will right itself in time. Sadly, that doesn’t always happen. Counselling can give you the opportunity to explore issues to better understand what is going on and the possibility of changing or adapting your circumstances.
I work as an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist, believing that many current issues are the result of difficulties experienced in childhood, compounded through coping mechanisms that no longer serve their original function, and continue into adulthood, often shown in relationships with others. I blend a combination of therapies theoretically, together with practical strategies and affirming techniques, enabling me to tailor-make my counselling to each person’s individual needs. I offer a respectful, client-led person-centred approach that conforms to the ethical practice of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, of which I am a registered member.
In these difficult days of Covid-19 pandemic, I offer telephone, email and secure online counselling via Zoom, that enables us to talk together in an encrypted secure environment, without the current risks of face to face contact. Agreed, it's not quite the same, but it does make counselling a definite viable option even today.
My first session
In our first session, we will talk about what brings you to counselling and what you are looking to achieve from the process.
You will be able to ask any questions about coming to counselling with me, and your expectations.
We will also consider whether we both feel comfortable to work together to achieve your desired outcome, and how we might do so. We can then both decide whether we would like to book further sessions.
