About me and my therapy practice

I understand that starting therapy can feel daunting. I once had my first therapy session too and remember how much anxiety I felt just reaching out to make initial contact with a therapist. I aim to make the process as comfortable as possible so I am happy to answer any questions you have about therapy – email is best for these enquiries.

I work in a relational style meaning there is a focus on building a relationship between us so we can explore your difficulties together as openly and honestly as possible. This process typically has elements of self-reflection, gaining a deeper understanding of yourself and why you think, feel and behave the way you do. Armed with this self-knowledge you are better able to change the way you think, feel and behave in response to past experiences and the inevitable challenges and stresses of life. This then helps you in finding healthier coping strategies and building emotional resilience.

Everyone’s therapy journey is unique and my role is to be alongside you, as you progress through it

Practice description

Since Covid19 I have moved my practice to online sessions and telephone sessions only. 

Sessions are 50 minutes long and usually weekly. We would agree a regular time slot for our sessions once we decided to work together.

My first session

The first few sessions will be slightly different from later on in therapy. We will be getting to know each other and I'll be explaining how I work and the therapy process. You'll be deciding if you feel that I am someone you can trust and open up to about your difficulties and if my style of therapy is a good fit for you. There will be more information gathering at this stage as I learn about your situation and history while you can also ask any questions you have may about starting therapy.

We will also talk about confidentiality and our therapy contract including my privacy policy which is mandatory for me to have to ensure I am storing your personal data safely.
