About me and my therapy practice
Seeking help from a professional can seem like a daunting and confusing task as there are lots of different counselling theories and approaches to choose from. There are many factors to be mindful of when choosing the style of counselling to go for. Things to consider are, choosing a style that resonates with you, that you understand and you understand how you can benefit from it.
Within my practice I provide a safe, non-judgemental, professional and confidential environment in which you can explore whatever you feel necessary. Through exploring these issues, we can both begin to understand what is happening and why. This process can assist in self-understanding which in-turn boosts self-confidence and compassion. With this knowledge you may then become empowered to make the necessary changes needed in your life to address whatever has been causing the discomfort.
I offer a free initial 20-minute session either over the phone or by video call to talk through the issues you want to explore. This initial session gives you the opportunity to meet/talk with me to enable you to decide whether you feel comfortable working with me and to explore the potential help I can offer and also the most suitable counselling approach to take. During this session we will explore what you wish to achieve during the course of our work and we will mutually agree the number of sessions required to achieve this. I understand this can be a hard first step so if you have any questions regarding therapy please give me a call or send an email – I will respond within 24 hours. Should you decide to embark on therapy your first session will be arranged at a time that is convenient to you.
