About me and my therapy practice

You may have been thinking about approaching a counsellor or psychotherapist for some time. It can feel really daunting to approach someone to talk about the problems you are experiencing. Some people put it off because they feel they should be able to deal with the issues bothering them by themselves. At some point in our lives we all experience distressing events, difficult feelings or relationships and a little support at those times can go a long way.

I work with couples and individual clients with the aim exploring whats troubling them;  gain deeper understanding of themselves and what is important to them. I have worked or  many years with people experiencing difficulties with their self esteem that has held them back in their work and/or personal lives. 

I offer in person sessions and remote sessions. Some people find remote sessions more convenient or an easier route into therapy.  



Practice description

My aim is to provide a safe space in which you feel able to explore your personal difficulties and find a way through these for yourself. My role is to help you through this process without judgment or telling you what to do. If I think it would be helpful, I may provide information or offer suggestions. I work in collaboration with you on specific goals we discussed at the initial assessment. Throughout our time together we will review progress towards an ending based on an agreed number of sessions or if the therapy is open ended, regular reviews will be part of the process to ensure you needs are being met and how the progress you feel you had made.

It is important that you feel comfortable with your therapist or counsellor. It does take time to build trust in a relationship but sometimes we sense a particular person is not right for us either at the first contact or after a couple of sessions. I will encourage you to decide for if you feel I am the right person for you, and it is fine for you to say at the outset or subsequently if you decide I’m not. I will also let you know if I don’t feel I am the best person to help with your particular problems. In these circumstances I will do my best to point you towards other avenues of more appropriate help and support. 

My first session

Our first contact will be a via email or telephone. I offer a 20 minute intial meeting in which I will ask you about the problems you are experiencing and for how long. I will also ask what your hopes and expectation are from having therapy and if you have had help before. I will send you my contract to read, and if we decide I may be able to help then we can arrange a session if you wish to proceed. Depending on your preference session are held in person,  Zoom or telephone. In our first session,  I will ask for more in-depth  information about your current situation, your life experiences including your, relationships, lifestyle, mental and physical health and emotional well being.  I will ask you to give your informed consent to the client contract if you decide you would like to continue.  I will ask you to provide the contact  details of your GP and an emergency contact person. 

Once these formalities are done future  sessions will be shaped by what you what you want to bring.
