About me and my therapy practice
First of all I will listen to what brings you to counselling. We will then spend some time sorting out the key issues that you feel are causing problems, and talk through the future work we do together.
This will mean doing a full assessment of current issues, together with some information on personal history. We then decide on a contract to work together with a review. These decisions are made between us as part of the therapeutic relationship.
I offer warmth, openness and honesty which is non-judgemental.
I have experience working with all sorts of issues that may cause pain, anger, confusion, anxiety, depression and other uncomfortable feelings. My intention is to help with the exploration of the issues and the painful feelings. Together we can begin to unravel and sort through a way to seeing things more clearly , and to develop a deeper awareness. This will help with finding new ways of managing those difficult feelings when we are feeling overwhelmed or under pressure.
I have been a professional therapeutic counsellor for 18 years with commitment to help promote and maintain healthy and safe personal relationships.
For the last 10 years I have been working in schools as a therapist. My role involved working with parents, teachers and children, individually, always with the focus on the client. My private practice is built on this foundation of exploring difficult situations and feeling much better for talking them through.
My first session
The First session will be an assessment and contracting session which will be for one hour, the fee is £60.00
We will talk through the decision to come to counselling and some personal history of family and relationships. This will involve discussions on what you expect and wish to work on, during counselling.
At the end of the session you will decide if you wish to continue with counselling, in which case we will contract for further 50 minute sessions, £50.00 per session, either face to face, or on zoom.
