About me and my therapy practice
Thank you for taking the time to view my profile, my name is Rob and I am an Integrative Therapeutic Counsellor I work primarily in a person centred style to offer a confidential, safe, warm supportive environment. As an integrative therapist I am informed by psychodynamic principles to support and enable understanding of how life's experiences form and shape our personalities and ways of being. Such understanding may create the potential of positive change and resolution of difficulties.
I have specific training from a Reading charity specialising in the trauma informed support of victims of sexual abuse, and rape.
I am commited to continual professional development and passionately believe that everyone deserves to be seen, heard and supported.
My practice is based at the Reading Health Centre, 61 Castle Street located opposite the Reading Police Station. The nearest car park is the Broad Street Mall car park, 3/4 minutes walk away. I work primarily face to face but I can offer a blended service with online sessions to maintain continuity and support for busy lives.
I also have a weekend practice in Shinfield, just off Junc 11 of the M4, I have morning sessions available on Saturday morning and Wednesday evenings either face to face or online.
My first session
I offer an initial free phone meeting to explore your needs and expectations of therapy and establish that I am able to meet these for you. You may not be sure exactly what it is that's troubling you or what to expect and that's okay too. Therapy is a collaborative journey of discovery and the therapeutic relationship is a dynamic and evolving experience in service to you the client.
If after our call you choose to proceed we will arrange to meet for regular weekly 50 minute sessions. I can accomodate short and long term work and will typically review every 6 sessions to ensure my focus is on your aims and is oriented to meeting your needs.
