About me and my therapy practice
Initially trained as a Person -centred counsellor, so listening and allowing a safe space for you to express your thoughts and feelings is an important part of the therapy. I am able to work short or long term with clients.
I have attended further training and developed skills. One of those being brief Person -centred therapy, helped by working as a counsellor in a GP surgery for 12 years. I also worked for a local counselling charity (14 years)and on a contract counselling those leaving custodial service, helping them gain self awareness.
My special interest has been in creative therapies and i have experienced 5 years as part of art therapy group work. Some ideas I may use in therapy .
I am also trained in Emotional freedom Technique (EFT) or Tappingas it is better known. I hold an Accredited certified EFT practitioner qualification. This is something I have found useful myself and to support others with Anxiety and stress issues.
I now work with couples as well as individual adults.
I work from my specially appointed, comfortable room at home, with ground level access. With parking outside the door and on the outskirts of Oswestry , so easily accessible by road.
During the recent pandemic I have been used Telephone counselling for clients and found this a useful, reliable option to face to face.
I work from home, however will do home visits by special request if a client is unable to travel.
I see individual adults and couples on a face to face basis however my chosen way of working during the pandemic has been Telephone counselling.
My first session
In the first session we identify your issues and how we might work together. We look at a contract, what you can expect from me, confidentiality and data protection being part of this. We decide how many sessions you may require and book the next one if you decide to go ahead.
I do charge for first sessions however offer an informal telephone chat initially if required.
