About me and my therapy practice
Events in one’s personal life and in the world can become very challenging. Therapy offers a confidential space to explore them. However, starting therapy and finding the right therapist can feel like a big challenge in itself.
My approach is non-judgemental and relational. During the first session we can explore some of your concerns and to see if you feel comfortable talking to me. In the first instance, we can speak over the phone to discuss if you want to set up the first session.
I am an integrative counsellor. The core of my work is psychodynamic. I also use techniques from other approaches such as Gestalt, Existential and Cognitive Behavioural therapies.
Often, clients and I agree to use CBT techniques to manage symptoms on the one hand while exploring deeper feelings and thinking patterns on the other. The aim is to develop a better awareness of oneself so that issues from the past can be acknowledged and put to rest. At the same time, this awareness can lead to lasting improvements in different areas of life.
I follow the BACP ethical framework and our work together is confidential. Your personal information, such as your name and address, are held securely according to professional guidelines.
My first session
Each session lasts fifty minutes. In the first session, I will ask you for some general information such as your family circumstance, your health and what brought you to therapy.
It is also an opportunity for us to get to know each other and to see if you feel that you can trust me and feel that I am someone you can talk to. I look forward to hearing from you.
