About me and my therapy practice
I work with both couples and individuals who are experiencing difficulty in moving forward in their personal lives. The work can be short term to focus on a specific concern you have or open-ended to help unravel whatever is stopping you from living your life in a more manageable way.
My style is a blend of psychodynamic and systemic which means together we think about where the problem started, how others impact on it and how we see ourselves as a result. Just understanding this can help to demystify the problem and reduce the effects on daily life.
I work in a relaxed, warm and straightforward manner from my office which is calm and private. I am qualified in psychodynamic counselling and a registered member of BACP and have trained with Relate regarding couples work. I continue to work for Relate from two of their regional offices and have previously worked in a variety settings both long & short term.
Having undertaken 2 years of counselling as part of the qualification process I understand how difficult it can be to start talking to someone about what is troubling us. I will always be respectful of what you'd like to discuss and will not force the pace or subject matter.
My first session
Before committing to counselling I invite clients to meet for an introductory discussion which takes around an hour. The cost for this is £45 and is used to determine if you (and I) feel we are a good fit and how we might best work together if we decide to go forward.
