About me and my therapy practice
I provide face to face sessions, online sessions via Microsoft Teams platform and Telephone Counselling Sessions. My therapeutic practice is grounded in extensive experience in mental health services and studies in psychology and counselling. If you are struggling with difficult feelings such as anxiety, sadness and anger, these can sometimes feel overwhelming. Being able to talk through your difficulties can help you understand your feelings and make things feel more manageable. I can provide a calm presence, listen to you without judgement and enable you to build confidence and develop personal resources.
My approach is predominantly person-centred, this means I believe in peoples’ ability to find a way through uncertain or turbulent times by exploring what really matters to them. I enable clients to talk freely and openly about their struggles, which can allow them to develop their own solutions and insights. Some clients also want to learn about new ideas or how to develop positive coping strategies during therapy. I can support people with these aims by sharing ideas and experiential exercises from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
My first session
Before the first session, I will send you a copy of my counselling agreement, counselling contract and privacy statement via secure email. I will print copies of these for us both to sign when we meet or sessions are online the documents can be signed electronically.
During the first session I will complete an assessment with you to get a clear picture of your current difficulties/issues, the different areas of your life (how the issues impact these) and your goals for therapy. I will explain in detail how I work and discuss how you would like to work with me, so that the sessions can be tailored to meet your individual needs.
