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 what is 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. I usually suggest two intial sessions so I can get to fully understand your particular needs and for you to see if my approach suits you.    I don’t feel to help with your particular problems I will do my best to point you towards other avenues of more appropriate help and support. 

My first session

Our initial contact will likely be over the phone or email, at that point I will suggest we arrange a non-chargeable meeting of approximately twenty minutes to discuss what has brought you the therapy at this point in your life; what your hopes and/or goals are for the future. This meeting can be either in person, Zoom or telephone. I will provide a copy of my Individual Client Contract or Couple Contract for your information.  If you decide to proceed in  the first  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. two sessions will give you the opportunity to see if my approach works for you. If I feel my skills and experience are insufficient to provide you with the help that is needed, I will endeavour to suggest other avenues of support or other therapists that may be able to help. If we decide to continue working together each session is then shaped by your needs at that time.
