About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified integrative counsellor/psychotherapist offering confidential short and long term therapy.
Psychotherapy/counselling provides the opportunity to discuss concerns or difficulties which may be getting in the way of leading a full life. It can also be used to talk about feelings which may have been buried for a long time but have now resurfaced for various reasons.
Your reasons for wishing to talk to someone may have been triggered by a specific event such as a trauma or some kind of loss, or a series of events. Often there may be no apparent problem and yet suddenly you feel stuck or low. I believe we get the most benefit from counselling and psychotherapy when we are able to work together in a way which lets us feel safe and accepted; for our weaknesses as well as our strengths.
I provide a safe, containing space where all these feelings and issues can be explored and you are able to heal, grow and move forward in your life.
My approach to counselling is integrative. This means that I incorporate various counselling methodologies in my work. The main counselling approaches I use are: Psychodynamic, Humanistic (Person-Centred) and Existential.
I provide down to earth therapy in a supportive, comfortable and confidential environment. I believe that each person is unique and so I work in different ways to encourage greater insight, awareness and understanding of why problems may have arisen and how change can happen.
My first session
During your first session we look at your reasons for wishing to enter into counselling, and we do this in a completely safe and non-judgemental space. This can be either face-to-face or online depending on your preference.
Taking the first step towards entering counselling is often the bravest, and I will provide a supportive environment for you to explore some of the feelings that have brought you to this moment. This initial session will be a two-way process, and of course completely without obligation. It will give you the opportunity to take the final decision on whether you feel we will be able to work together.
I offer a discounted fee for the initial 50 minute consultation of £40.
