About me and my therapy practice
I have been a psychodynamic counsellor for 20 years and have also worked in GP surgeries for 5 years using CBT. I offer a peaceful space, with plenty of parking, in which we can work together to discover how your past may be impacting on your present, and how you can choose to change the way you live in the future.
I am happy to chat on the phone prior to meeting, to help you get a sense of what to expect.
I offer weekly sessions of 60 mins at the same time each week. This is your time and is kept just for you. Consequently I do ask for 24 hours notice of cancellation. All work is completely confidential and I attend regular supervision to ensure I can give the best possible service to clients. My room is up a flight of stairs, completely separate from my house and so provides the right kind of safe space in which to work.
My first session
I would normally ask more questions during the first session, just to establish outline details, but further sessions are more client lead.
I email some more details of what to expect beforehand, together with a small form for clients to enter contact details, and instructions on how to find me.
