About me and my therapy practice
Our lives can be stressful and overwhelming at times . Things get on top of us and its seems hard to find peace and balance. We may have some difficult feelings or past hurts that are stopping us moving forward . We feel stuck .
As an experienced therapist I offer a welcoming and accepting space to work through any feelings that may be holding you back and stopping you living a fulfilled life.
I am an integrative counsellor which means that I am trained in a variety of theories and counselling approaches so that our work together is tailored to your individual needs, as everyone is different and my sessions are client led so you can talk to me confidentially about whatever you are comfortable with at your own pace.
I hold a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling , and can help with an wide range of difficulties . I have worked extensively with bereavement and loss , relationship issues , anxiety , depression and self esteem.
I offer face to face sessions at my home in Billericay , where I have a garden summerhouse that is quiet and private .
Each session is 50 minutes long and will be on the same day and time each week where possible .
Here I will offer you a calm and respectful space for us to work together on any issues that you wish to bring to therapy . We will work together to gain perspective and understanding about what is going on for you and can look at any goals for your life you may have and how best to work towards them .
Often what has happened to us in the past can provide clues about the problems we are dealing with in the present . Equally , we can be hit by an unexpected life event that we need some support to process .so I aim to sit alongside my clients, offering them empathy , acceptance and time to explore what is happening for them .
My first session
I offer a free, informal 20 minute telephone consultation initially , if I'm not available at the time you call please leave in your message the best time for me to call you back . When we speak , you can outline what the problem is that you are bringing to counselling and we can also look at what you are looking to achieve from your therapy sessions with me .There is no obligation to commit to therapy .
Our first session together will be arranged at a time convenient to both of us and is £45. Here we can look in more detail at your problem and how I can best help and support you .
After this should you wish to continue with therapy , we will meet at the same time each week until you are ready to move forward on your own .
