About me and my therapy practice
Offering warmth and experience having worked with issues such as trauma following the atrocities of war, childhood trauma including abuse, low self-esteem, self-harm, depression, anxiety, psychosomatic illness and pain, bereavement and loss and I have felt privileged to have been entrusted to help so many people to regain control over their mental, emotional and physical well being.
Supporting individuals in their goals to find inner peace, strength, self-growth and understanding, acceptance and management of difficult emotional and mental health issues. Clients have spanned 20 to 94 years of age and have been diverse in gender, culture, creed, ethnicity, sexual orientation and physical ability.
Qualified in Psychodynamic and Integrative Counselling, I am able to offer various types of therapy depending on your individual needs and goals. I also have experience of supporting a person on the autistic spectrum and couple counselling experience.
I am ready to listen to how your unique set of circumstances and experiences has brought you to this point in your life and for the two of us to work together to help you get to where you want to be mentally and emotionally.
With a calming influence and ability to promote a sense of ease in clients with past trauma issues, depression, anxiety, OCD, panic attacks, PTSD and much more, I can offer flexibility on how therapy is delivered from long term Psychodynamic to short term CBT solutions.
Offering face to face counselling in Herne Bay, observing the hands, face, space government and national health guidance, but during these unprecedented times I can also offer zoom or Skype if you would prefer. Confidentiality in all methods of delivery of the therapy session will be observed at all times as they would at any other time when we were not in a pandemic situation.
The space offered for face to face counselling is situated in a medical environment where cleanliness of the surfaces in the Counselling room is of paramount importance and the provision of hand sanitising gel and face coverings if you should forget to bring yours, can be provided. I will continue to wear a face shield to further protect you and also me.
We are all different in so many ways and experience life events differently as a result. As unique individuals, every person has the right to be heard and helped if they seek it.
This is what I offer; an honest and open space for my clients to feel able to talk about whatever they feel they want to share, in confidence and without judgement and that about sums it up.
My first session
At your first assessment session, you will receive an honest and warm discussion about your expectations of the therapeutic relationship. We will cover regularity of sessions, discuss long term and short term solutions and you will have the opportunity to tell me what has brought you to see me.
Your first session would be an assessment for you and I to introduce ourselves and see if we feel that I would be the right counsellor for you.
This assessment session is offered at the reduced rate of £30:00 payable in advance and will be between and hour and an hour and a half long.
I will not ask from you more than you feel able to tell in this first session; although if you decide you would like to go ahead and begin counselling with me, I would need to take a few personal details.
I am registered with the Information Commissioners Office and will take the correct precautions to protect your personal information.
