About me and my therapy practice
I am an integrative therapist: when we first meet we will get to know each other and find the best way that we can work together. I will explain the different approaches that may support you.
The particular areas I specialise in are anxiety, depression, phobias, eating disorders, stress management and family relationship difficulties.
I also work with couples who are experiencing difficulties in their relationship.
Please do contact me, the first time we meet I aim to answer any questions you may have, explain more about counselling and put you at ease.
My qualifications include:
Registered and accredited member of BACP
PGDip in Psychotherapy
QTS and NPQH: National College of Teaching and Leadership
Accredited award in SEN: University of Cambridge
Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy: UEL
I run a private practice in Leigh-on-sea.
The first time we meet we can discuss how many sessions may be of benefit to you. We will have regular discussions about how we are working together and the progress you feel you are making.
There are no fixed amount of sessions: I work with your timeframes and availability.
My first session
I hope to put you at ease in the first session by getting to know you a little and answering any questions you may have.
Our first meeting will usually involve finding out more about you by considering:
-What you hope to achieve through counselling.
-If you have had any experiences of counselling in the past.
-The best therapeutic approach for you.
-The reason you are considering therapy at this time.
At the end of this first session, I will suggest you have some time to think about whether I am the right therapist for you. There is no obligation to book another session.
