About me and my therapy practice
I offer confidential face to face therapy as well as online or telephone sessions. You can initially call or email me in order to discuss your needs briefly and for me to advise you about therapy. You can decide if you would like to see me in my quiet, calm Nailsea based location or would prefer to meet me via Zoom, Facetime or telephone. I have extensive experience supporting young and old from all walks of life with many of life's struggles. I am a Person-Centred counsellor but also work integratively using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Transactional Analysis and Gestalt approach depending on your individual needs.
My sessions are informal and relaxed and I hope you will find me warm and approachable. I am interested in your aims in coming for counselling as well as keen to help you work out what they might be if you don't already know.
My first session
In our first session we will work out together what you want to get from counselling - what has brought you here. I will try and put you at your ease by asking a few questions about you and your background or you may already come with your own thoughts ready to share. Sometimes your needs may change as counselling progresses and I will always check in with you if we are still heading in the right direction. The first meeting will give you a chance to find out about me too and if you feel I am right for you. We can decide how many sessions you might like to have and this is always flexible. I will explain to you how counselling is a confidential service and I work within the BACP's professional code of conduct.
