About me and my therapy practice
ALL SESSIONS CURRENTLY TAKING PLACE OUTDOORS, BY VIDEO LINK OR PHONE.
I work in S7 and see clients between 9:30 am and 4:00 pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
In our first session we will explore what you are currently experiencing and a little bit about key life events that may have been important. You will find out about my way of working and will have the opportunity to ask questions, or explore concerns about entering therapy. You are never committed to anything beyond the next session that you've booked.
I see our work together as a collaborative process so I will always be willing to explain what I'm thinking and offer ideas for things to be doing in session or between sessions. We can decide together if these ideas work for you. Some clients like their therapist to mostly listen and support, others like the sessions to be more active or have a focus. I can be very flexible to help you get the most out of each appointment.
I love my work and feel privileged to support clients in making positive changes. Clients have described me as warm, friendly and approachable. As part of my professional and ethical responsibility, I am committed to ongoing training, regular supervision (a requirement for BACP members), and practising good self-care.
In the spirit of collaboration and giving my clients as much agency as possible in their therapy, I can offer various modalities that clients can choose from (traditional talk therapy, walking sessions outdoors, using imagery and creative processes, journal and expressive writing exercises etc.). Together, we will develop a plan for how you want to work, and how I can best support you.
You may want longer sessions but meet less frequently, you may want to have things to work on between sessions to discuss together, you may want to mix and match outdoor and online meetings. We can find a way of working that allows you to get the most out of your sessions.
My first session
After an optional free 15-20 min phone or Zoom chat, we will schedule at least one session. These last 50 minutes (60 mins for outdoor sessions) and cost £50 or £60.
If you want to proceed after this session, we will schedule up to 2 subsequent sessions so you can plan ahead. These ongoing sessions usually last between 50-75 mins but we will discuss any alternative formats.
