About me and my therapy practice

Hi there! I know it is daunting to come to counselling and meet a new person, even if you have experienced counselling before. I won't expect you to feel immediately comfortable with me but if you are, that is great. 

I want you to know that you are in control of how our sessions go. I won't force you to answer any questions. I'll just ask them and you reply if you can. This is basically a summary of how I work regardless of the theoretical model we may be working through together. It is my highest priority that you feel safe and supported in our work. 

Practice description

I am an integrative counsellor and I try to meet people where they are at at each stage of their journey. The mix of counselling theories that I draw upon really allows me to do that by allowing me to switch up how directive I am and where we might take the sessions. 

I am transparent in how I do things in an ongoing way that helps to create an environment of co-production, i.e. we are working together to reach the end goal. 

My first session

Our first session together will be a little bit different because we will go through an assessment and a broad history. But, remember, I won't force you to disclose anything to me. I will simply ask and I won't feel like you lied if you didn't tell me in session 1 but do tell me in session 10. I understand that you need to feel safe and to trust me first.
