About me and my therapy practice
With over 15 years experience as a counsellor, I provide a space to work through any issues that may be affecting your life in short or long term therapy. These may be things from your past, what's going on at the moment, or worries about the future. I work with adults and young people 14-18 years old, using the Person Centred approach, working flexibly to suit individual needs. I have very positive feedback.
Lots of things may be affecting you – large and small. Or just one thing is having an impact on your life. It may be issues with college, school, work, home life, childhood experiences, relationships, accidents, past trauma, illness – anything. It's important to build the trust with a counsellor so that you feel able to look at the things that you are struggling with and work things out about yourself that you can move on from.
I often describe counselling as a bit like doing a jigsaw. You may have some edges and corners and lots of middle pieces, but no clear picture on the box. Together we would start working out what the different pieces are about, how they fit together with other bits and why your picture is as it is and what it can be. As everyone is different we will understand and put things together - at your pace in your way.
Although I work with adults, I have many years experience working with young people aged 14+. The Person Centred approach works well for many young people, particularly teenagers, as they are in control of the process at a time when life can feel challenging, with so many changes happening and choices to be made.
My first session
At the Introductory session, which is free, you will be able to find out more about how we could work together. I will explain about how I work in more detail and you will be invited to say why you want to come for counselling, so we can have a conversation about that. You can check out the room and ask any questions.
If you decide to start counselling, we will go through the contract at the first session [which I will have emailed to you] and then we can begin to work together. Things will go at your pace and in your timeframe.
