About me and my therapy practice

A warm welcome to my page.

I am a qualified psychotherapist and counsellor. I have experience of working with people with a broad range of issues.

People often decide to take on therapy due to some sort of crisis. However, I regard my job as not only helping people resolve immediate anxieties, but a collaborative work to produce enduring, transformational change, enabling to lead happier, more rewarding and fulfilling life.

I aim to produce a warm, empathic, supportive , encouraging environment in which my clients can share and explore their difficulties with me in safety and security and find new ways of being in the world.

I am always excited to meet and welcome prospective new clients and to see how we can work together. 

Practice description

I have an integrative approach to psychotherapy, which means I have several ways of working with clients according to the client’s needs. For example, using psychodynamic approach which pays attention to past experiences that may have a negative influence on present life, as well as humanistic approach which focuses on here and now.

My first session

The first step is to arrange an initial appointment to see if counselling could work for you. We will use the first session to see whether we can work together and if we agree, we can have a further 6 sessions.

Sometimes this is sufficient for what you need right now, or we may agree to work for longer. You can end at any time and there is no obligation to continue after the first session.

At our first session, we will discuss the main difficulties that brought you to therapy, explore the way to work together that may best suit you, and agree the details of our contract.
