I know that it takes courage to begin therapy and that choosing the right therapist to meet your needs is essential. If you would like more information or explore the possibility of working together, feel free to contact me directly by phone by email or to book a free 15-minute consultation where we can talk through any questions you may have before starting therapy.
About me and my therapy practice
I consider myself warm, genuine, empathic and non-judgmental. My therapeutic approach is Person-Centred Integrative, as I do not believe in a 'one size fits all approach.' Using skills and tools that I have learned, such as CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy), Solution Focused Therapy (SFT), Mindfulness, Creative Therapy and Autplay Therapy.
Drawing on various therapeutic methods allows me to listen to what is important to you and create a holistic therapeutic support package suited to your individual needs.
My employment background is working for the local authority within the Children in Care and Care Leaving Team as a Personal Advisor (PA) for 17 years. I have recently worked as a Therapist Practitioner (for the last two years), offering therapeutic support to children, adults and families subject to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE's). Also, as a Creative Therapist working with children within an educational environment who need additional therapeutic support who are at risk of exclusion.
Everyone deserves acceptance; through therapy, your deepest fears or vulnerabilities can be revealed and explored in a safe environment without the concern of what others may think. It can also successfully equip you with the knowledge and tools to make lasting changes or be open to accepting a change.
An integral part of the therapeutic relationship is first and foremost to establish a collaboration/partnership between the therapist and the client. The therapist role within the relationship is that of facilitator.
Attending any therapy can feel like a daunting prospect, but it is also a positive step towards refusing to accept your pathway and journey through life as it is, trust in the process and live your best life.
"I am not what happened to me; I am what I choose to become." ― Carl Gustav Jung.
Sessions are 50 minutes – £35 per session. Weekend appointments are available subject to client needs and therapist availability.
The therapeutic process, including forming the therapeutic relationship and bespoke support package, occurs within six weeks.
A review session will take place after the six weeks; this is where we will review progress and determine if further therapeutic support is required moving forward.
Six weekly reviews will continue after that. Therapeutic endings will be planned and agreed upon in collaboration with the client and therapist.
My first session
The first session will include a client history take/assessment of therapeutic need, including clients expectations of therapy.
Paperwork such as the client/therapy contract and consent form will be completed. The client will be issued with a copy to take home and digest.
Most importantly, that first session is when the client will begin making a connection with their therapist. You should feel safe, accepted, respected, and relatively comfortable during this time. Not all therapists are suitable for every person, so the client must use their first session to assess whether or not the therapist feels like a good match for their personality.
