About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified and experienced psychotherapeutic counsellor working in private practice with individuals, groups, and couples. I have worked in several settings including the NHS, Palliative Care, and the Ministry of Justice.
Psychotherapy and counselling are methods of talking therapies that are useful in understanding difficulties in how you think and feel in relation to yourself, the world, and others. Why someone finds themselves seeking out psychotherapy can be for many reasons. It could be a relationship in crisis, an illness or a bereavement that leaves someone feeling lost, anxious, and depressed. Sometimes there may not be one obvious life event troubling you, but a series of feelings that are hard to make sense of. Therapy can be a place to start to understand this process.
For instance, therapy can be a good place to start tackling a general lack of confidence, low self-esteem, feeling disconnected or overwhelmed with life. I can also work with compulsive or addictive behaviour that may once have been the solution to painful feelings or problems that no longer serve you and the life you wish to live. Or perhaps work related stress, redundancy or uncertainty around the future may need space to be thought about.
‘Every single human being, when the entire situation is taken into account, has always, at every moment of the past, done the very best that he or she could do, as so deserves neither blame nor reproach from anyone, including self’. Carole Shadbolt.

My first session
What happens next?
The first step involves you sending me an email, followed by an initial brief telephone call, and then a 30 minute free consultation. We then discuss what you might be looking for from therapy and whether myself or another therapist might be more suitable. In which case I would refer you to a colleague.
You can either call me on: 07900064502 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
