About me and my therapy practice

I work using an integrative model in which I recognise the central importance of the relationship between the client and the therapist – the therapeutic relationship. I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and as such work according to their Ethical Framework.

At our first session, I will talk with you and together we can explore what would be helpful for you in terms of what you want to get from our sessions. Through careful listening and discernment, we will be able to set some goals to work on and develop an understanding about what changes you would like to make. What happens in the rest of the sessions will emerge from what you talk about and what you would like to work on. Together we can explore your unique struggles in a non-judgemental space and through this begin to help you to validate your feelings, assert your needs and empower yourself in a way that feels right for you.

I believe that everyone is essentially good and has an innate desire to become the best that they can possibly be. By reflecting on our experiences with truth and honesty, we can work towards greater trust and feel more comfortable with who we are. I believe it is important to look back to the past and to question the previously established patterns of behaviour that may no longer serve us well in the present. By re-examining how we developed our sense of Self, through the therapeutic relationship, we can find new ways to interact with others and make our own decisions with greater confidence.

I work in a calm, quiet space where confidentiality and safety is ensured. Each counselling session lasts for 50 to 55 minutes. In line with ethical practice I have access to supervision for the work that I do.
