About me and my therapy practice
I am a counsellor working in Stoneleigh, Epsom. I work integratively, drawing on both humanistic and psychodynamic theories.
Life can bring challenges which can be difficult to face alone. I believe that Talking Therapy offers an opportunity to think about how you approach problems from a different perspective and to voice what is on your mind in a warm, caring environment with an empathic, non-judgmental person at your side.
The pressures of life can be immense and sometimes overwhelming. On top of this we can also be thrown off course by traumatic events, bereavement, relationship problems, family issues, health problems, depression, financial worries. Feelings of emptiness, anger, loneliness, and anxiety may affect your ability to cope.
There are often many expectations placed upon us: the need to be positive, succeed, achieve, meet targets, exceed targets, work hard, play hard, eat healthily, keep fit; be a good person, colleague, employee, employer, parent, son, daughter, partner, lover; be strong, be happy... the list is endless and exhausting.
Taking the first step to ask for help can be daunting, but together we can work through what is troubling you in a non-judgmental, safe environment. I can give you the space, time, empathy and encouragement to make the changes in your life you need to be more you.
During the Covid 19 pandemic I am holding Zoom counselling sessions online, or by telephone.
My first session
In our first session I will ask some general questions about your health, personal history, relationships and your reasons for seeking therapy. We will discuss the outcome you would like to achieve. This helps to quickly establish a framework from which we can build. We will also talk about confidentiality, the way I practice as a counsellor and look at the counselling contract.
I offer a full 50 minute initial session for a fee of £20. This is without obligation to continue but can be helpful in deciding if we can move forward in our counselling relationship
