About me and my therapy practice

I want to help and support individuals / couples who know they're struggling right now.  

My aim is to see you within 4-7 working days, I will respond to your enquiry within 24hrs. 

Being told you need to wait on a waiting list for me is not acceptable, especially when you know you need the help right now.

Practice description

I want to work with clients who feel truly heard and wanted. I want you to leave my office knowing I have listened your voice.

I understand by reaching out and making contact your life is not great and you are seeking support. You are tired from struggling  and being trapped inside your head with your negative thoughts, 24/7.

I will do my best to understand you and together we will find a way of moving forward. It may not the the fairy tale ending we all seek and hope for, but it will be more manageable, realistic and you will succeed in your own goals.

My first session

After making contact, we will arrange our first session and I will ask you some questions and take notes. This background  information will help me to understand your behaviour, and why you may react in a certain way. 

Some patterns can be learnt or passed down from generation to generation. Background information helps me to understand how you have got to this point in your life.

Together we will discuss how to get the best from each other in session, and how to manage awkward conversations when you would normally shut down. This is all part of our working contract, we will negotiate what is comfortable and together we will work at a pace which works for you, in session and out of session. 

I will talk to you about my legal requirements and what does confidentiality mean in counselling? when would "WE" agree to a 3rd party referral? and how long do I store my notes ect. 

During our first session at the end, we will discuss if you feel I am the right therapist for you. If the felt the connection was right and counselling is something that you want to commit to. This is when we would arrange a second session in my diary.

You will always offer you options, it is a bespoke service, and it's tailor made for you.
