I work Monday - Thursday 1pm-9pm and I offer online or in-person weekly meetings. I use Skype, Zoom, Whatsapp, Telehealth, this based on your preferences and needs.
About me and my therapy practice
I am professionally trained in Psychodynamic Counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I am also a Professional Member of the Association for Counselling and Therapy Online (ACTO). In the last 7 years I have held different positions in the third sector and private practice.
I work collaboratively, which means that we will decide together what it is best for you and how.
Once you have contacted me we will agree on a good time for both of us to have conversation to know a bit more about each other and think together whether we would like to have a first session in person, video Skype or WhatsApp facetime; we will evaluate whether to meet in person, if allowed and beneficial. We will also discuss on how to think about a safe and confidential space for you to have therapy if this is online.
The way I work is to combine your needs and goals for therapy together with my experience, the most recent research, your preferences and life circumstances. We will think together taking into account all those elements and identify what may be more appropriate and effective for you.
It can be difficult to predict how long therapy will take, it really depends on your needs, situation and story. We can work for a brief time or a longer time. Time to time we may decide to touch base and review where we are.
I offer Psychodynamic and CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and I am informed by Existential Counselling.
In my practice I am sex positive and I hold an affirmative approach to LGBTQIA+, agender and genderfluid. I am also neurodivergent-affirmative.
My first session
The first 2 or 3 of sessions are a bit different from Therapy.
They help us to decide to think about your reasons, expectations, hopes and goals for therapy. We will evaluate whether Online Therapy or In-person Therapy is the right choice for you. We will both have a discussion to decide whether working together will help you, how and how long or if other services/professionals may better help you, and in this case, we will discuss the various options available to you and I will support you in this.
If we agree to work together, we will set up on a time and day for regular weekly meetings, we will have clear written Terms of Engagment.
