About me and my therapy practice
I trained for 3 years at The College of Holistic Medicine, Glasgow and offer an integrated approach to therapy called The Core Capacity Approach which believes that each person can develop the capacity to support themselves. I help people find solutions to current life situations that are causing stress, pain, confusion or dissatisfaction. The model I am trained in focuses on Gestalt therapy and brings in aspects of CBT and Person-centered counselling. I create a safe and supportive space facilitating the overcoming of obstacles and a connection to a healthier sense of self. This enables clients to adjust to their reality and respond in a more flexible and self-supporting way. I mostly work privately from a therapy space in my home but, due to the remote area I work in, I can offer appointments at the client's home.
My first session
The first session involves a set of general background questions to help me build a picture of you and your life. We get the chance to set out what it is you need from therapy and gives you a chance to meet me and get a feel for the way I work. Due to the constraints of building rapport and trust, there is rarely an opportunity to go work deeply in the first session, however, by naming the crux of your predicament we have started on the path to recovery. You will get the chance to ask any questions about me, my training and how therapy will progress. This will help you to decide whether we have a good match or not, it is very important that you choose a therapist you can feel safe and comfortable with.
