About me and my therapy practice
Hello, I am a BACP registered counsellor/psychotherapist working in the Farnham area of Surrey/Hants.
I specialise in working with adults with depression. You may have been diagnosed or else you suspect you are suffering from it (feeling down, worthless, no pleasure in life, lacking in energy etc). Sometimes we know why we're depressed, for example we may have suffered a bereavement or have problems with work or a relationship (partner, friends, colleagues etc). Sometimes we do not know why we feel that way.
I can offer a 12-16 week course of IPT (Inter-Personal Psychotherapy) for depression which is recommended by NICE. It is a semi-structured approach and there is convincing research evidence for its effectiveness.
However, I am also willing to work with you in a more open-ended way and we would discuss the best way forward during our first session after I have a better understanding of your situation.
In non-Covid times my practice was based either at home or in Central Farnham. Since March 2020 I work via Zoom
My first session
The first session with me would be for around an hour.
During that time I would aim to get a better understanding of why you are seeking help and would be checking that I have the right expertise to help you. The first session is also a chance for you to get a feel for how I work and whether that feels comfortable for you. During the first session (and subsequent sessions) you are free to ask any questions about the process of counselling/therapy and about how I work.
At the end of the session we would discuss the way forward. By this time you might have decided whether or not you would like to go ahead with me, but also you might decide you need more time to think about it and that is fine.
