About me and my therapy practice
My name is Stacy, I am a trained psychotherapist and what that means is I work with both your past and current experiences and work with you to try and draw links and better understand yourself.
I trained for 5 years with the counselling foundation, a requirement of my training was to be in personal therapy myself so I know how it can feel to be sat in the client seat, how nerve-racking it can be and how odd it can feel. It is important you feel comfortable and safe with your chosen therapist and that is why I offer a first initial session with no pressure to commit to further sessions.
Common complaints I often hear are "I don't know why I do that," "I don't know how to change" "I don't know who I am" or "I experienced (something) and it's affecting my current situation." My role is to work with you to unpick your experiences and help you to form links and understand your thinking process so you can make changes from the route of the problem. Sometimes it can be hard to identify the problem and all you know is that you need some help and that is ok too, whatever you are struggling with we can work together to try and understand it and if It is something perhaps needs more of a speciality I will do my best to signpost you somewhere.
Currently I am only able to offer zoom or telephone sessions.
I offer weekly sessions, usually the same day and time each week but I am aware this doesn't suit everyone with work commitments so there is room for flexibility.
I also offer both long and short term counselling. Short term is 30 sessions and long term is open ended which means there is no set end date but as and when the time feels right to you to finish the work we will work towards a gradual ending together.
I work hard to recreate the same environment as being face to face so you will always see me in the same room and I do like to encourage my clients to do the same as I know it can be tempting to answer the door, take a phone call or put the kettle on but making the time your time that you allow for yourself without distractions can be just as important in the work we do with each other as anything else.
Payments are to be made 48hours prior to our appointment, I have a 48hr cancellation policy - sessions cancelled after this time will be chargeable.
My first session
The first initial session will be for me to get to know you and what you would like help with and to explore what you would like to achieve whilst at the same time giving you the opportunity to get a feel for me since choosing the right counsellor for you is important. At the end of the session I will offer you the opportunity to book in your next appointment or for you to go away and think about it, there is no pressure to make a decision on the spot. If you choose to have further sessions I will take your personal details and doctor details.
