About me and my therapy practice
We can all go through times in our lives when we feel it would be beneficial to talk to someone. Perhaps you are experiencing anxiety or depression, negative thoughts are hijacking your mind or your relationships are suffering. Whatever it is, you may feel you will benefit from some support. Whatever your reasons for seeking therapy; they are valid.
I am particularly experienced in working with individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, relationships problems, unwanted thoughts and behaviours, abuse, bereavement and life changes. Working in the City I am also experienced with work burn out, stress and work/life balance.
I am a fully accredited experienced Integrative Psychotherapist with offering online therapy via Zoom/Facetime and/or Telephone. My approach is to explore the root causes of issues and work in a way unique to you, that will support you in addressing difficult or painful issues from both your past and present to help you move forward. I offer a supportive, non-judgemetal confidential space where you can explore thoughts, feelings and choices safely.
What do you need to do to 'get started'?
1/ Call or Email me to set up an initial session.
2/ In the initial session whether Online or via phone, we will talk about you, your background, and about what you would like to get out of counselling. It gives us the opportunity to get to know each other and explore counselling so that it is the right choice for you, with no obligation.
3/ If you're happy to continue we will arrange a second session either weekly.
Life can often be difficult to talk, therapy allows you to make sense of these experiences no matter there size, and speaking to someone trained to really listen can help you express those feelings in a private safe space.
How it works
There are times when life can become overwhelming, we may feel depressed or anxious, or feel stuck or lost. There may be particular concerns or issues going on for you in your life such as relationship difficulties, unresolved childhood issues, anxious thoughts, bereavement, loss etc. Each of these can really challenge us and our ability to cope with every day life.
Psychotherapy is a process where we can explore, examine, talk about and reflect on what is currently going on for you or previous experiences.
For me counselling is a collaborative process, where we work together. I offer a safe and secure space for you to talk freely and confidentially with no judgement. A private space that is your own where we can explore beliefs, behaviour patterns and strategies that may not be working for you. Together in therapy we can address these and reframe them into healthier ones that enable life to move forward.
How does Psychotherapy help?
Psychotherapy helps you to explore the issues that are troubling you. It gives you space and time for personal reflection within a supportive environment. You will be able explore your thoughts and feelings, which in your day-to-day life you often don’t have time or energy to deal with. It gives you space and time to reflect for your own personal development and growth.
My first session
What happens at the first session?
For the first session we arrange a time and day that works for you to meet for a consultation. I will send over additional information prior to your session in regard to confidentiality, safety etc. This first session allows for us to meet each other with no obligation to commit to future sessions.
In the session we will cover confidentiality, boundaries, what is bringing you to therapy and your background. We will also explore together what your hopes and aims are if you decide to move forward. It is also a time for you to ask any questions or concerns regarding counselling and your goals.
At the end of the session, if you wish we can discuss an approach to working together and talk about how many sessions we could start with if you did decide you wanted to go ahead.
