About me and my therapy practice
Free initial 30' consultation. Rooms in Hove and Brighton. Flexible working hours, including evenings and weekends.
The first session
In the first session I will come and greet you and show you to the room. We will sit comfortably in our armchairs with a drink of water and discuss what brings you to me, your expectations and your goals. We will use that time to see if we are the right fit for each other, what days and times would be best for us to meet (if you choose to continue) and also give you the opportunity to ask any questions that you might have.
How I work?
If I were to describe the way I work in a few words I would say that the client is guiding the course of therapy and together we work towards finding the best way to improve the client's life.
I do not believe there is a recipe on how to live life to the fullest or a universally accepted right or wrong way to do things. Therefore, much like a problem is specific to a person, the solution should be tailored to them.
What you can expect from me
You can expect from me empathy, genuineness and sincerity as well as unconditional positive regard; that means no judgement! I put aside my assumptions and let you reveal yourself to me, honouring your individuality. The sessions will be filled with exploration, understanding, meaning making, emotions and laughter. I am confident I can make you feel comfortable and safe in the counselling space.
For couples, I provide a platform for you to explore your relationship. I will not take sides. I aim to help both of you find your individual voices and re-evaluate your roles. That will usually take us to how both of you have evolved in the relationship and how the relationship itself has evolved as a result. We will explore and analyse how everything is affecting the here-and-now of your lives and reconstruct it into something that works, is sustainable and makes you happy.
