About me and my therapy practice
An experienced counsellor offering short term therapy of either 6 to 12 sessions or up to 15 sessions.
It may be that you have a specific issue to bring to therapy or you may have limited time and resources or perhaps you’d like to explore what the world of counselling is all about- in any case a short term model could work for you.
Counselling is an opportunity to talk to someone in confidence about the difficulties you are facing now. It is a regular time and space set aside each week where you will be heard and not judged. Counselling can benefit almost anyone: whether you are feeling depressed or low and don’t really understanding why or whether you know why you feel the way you do. Perhaps you suffer from anxiety, have relationship issues, low self esteem, or feel stuck and can't move on with your life. By working together with your counsellor it may be possible to really understand these feelings, sometimes for the first time. Counselling is a dynamic and interactive process- it maybe during the course of your therapy with me we become aware of deeper issues that would benefit from a longer term therapy. If this is the case I will provide you will an appropriate on ward referal.
What to expect from your sessions?
Sessions will last for 50 minutes and will be held in the same place and at the same time each week. There is no formula for what you should talk about in your sessions, no right or wrong thing to say. The most important thing in the session is you. You may have feelings about this and we can explore these further in the sessions.
My first session
This is an opportunity to talk about what has brought you to counselling now-the difficulties and problems you are facing in your life- in a safe, non judgemental and confidential space. We will think together about how long you might come for counselling- usually 6-12 sessions or up to 15 sessions. It may be that we decide that counselling would not be most beneficial for you at this time or that longer term counselling would be more suitable- if this is the case I will try to find an appropriate onward referral for you.
