About me and my therapy practice
At present I am working online.
I am an accredited member of BACP, experienced in working with individual adults, students and teenagers. I offer counselling to people seeking help for a variety of reasons, such as depression, anxiety, stress, bereavement, relationship difficulties, loneliness, lack of confidence, low self-esteem, child related issues, sexual identity, work pressures, etc.
I aim to work in a Person Centred way and strive to offer warmth, honesty and empathy. However, my training was integrative and I have undertaken further courses and workshops, which enables me to also offer various different approaches to meet a client's individual needs. I have also been trained to teach Mindfulness, which has been shown to help with anxiety and depression, as well as enhancing well-being.
I believe that everyone has it within them to grow and heal and the Person Centred approach, while not offering a 'quick fix' or instant solution, helps the client find their own way through problems.
It has been shown that talking through difficulties with someone trained to listen in a certain way, enables the client to grow and develop and lead a more satisfying and less troubled life. Sometimes one or two sessions may be enough for a particular client to gain relief. Other people find that six or twelve can aid enlightenment, fulfillment, growth and well-being. There are some clients who find themselves isolated and without a network of support and they might welcome a more long term approach, which I am happy to offer.
I charge £40 per session for individuals but offer a reduced rate of £30 for students, nurses working in IC and single parents on a low income. Sessions usually last for an hour.
I work as an individual practitioner in private practice in an office at my home. The office is on the ground floor and there is a toilet nearby.
I offer one-off sessions or planned work that might last over several weeks or months, depending on the client's needs.
My first session
My first session focuses on some basic details about my new client, a contract and a look at what brings the client to me and what they would like to achieve.
I also explain a little about person centred therapy and the way we work together.
