About me and my therapy practice
I have successfully helped people discover and accept who they truly are which is the foundation for a fulfilling life. You are unique and you have a right to be content and happy. Counselling is a powerful and effective therapy and I will 'hold the frame' for you, safely providing guidance throughout the therapeutic process. Therapy is not just for when you are in crisis but when you are considering what is right for you.
If you can envisage how you would like your life to be, even if it's only a small part of the picture you can see at the moment, then through the counselling process, we can look at how you would like the rest of your view to be.
Imagine what it would feel like to be in control of your life, letting go of ideas and behaviours which are unhelpful. Imagine being able to sleep more soundly and have more clarity on your life to be able to make choices that work for you.
We are all needing to adapt to a different way of living at the moment and finding new ways to connect. I am fortunate that I can still continue to offer counselling via different methods which enables us to keep safe. Online therapy is different to face to face but just as effective. You can relax knowing you do not need to worry about travelling to your appointment and can be safe and secure in your own surroundings, creating a cocoon of relaxation and comfort to solely concentrate on your needs. You might like to wear something cosy and have a refreshing or warm drink next to you whilst we carefully work together at your pace.
We will both be forming a therapeutic relationship so it's really important that you feel safe, heard and understood. I have not walked in your shoes so it is important that I learn what it is like to be you and what you need from counselling.
My first session
When we first meet, it's important that I understand what it is that you need from counselling and what has led you to this point. We will also discuss what my therapeutic responsibilities are and the ethical framework I work within.
This is a good chance to ask any questions you have about the counselling process to allow us to discuss how you would like your therapy to work. We will be building a secure foundation of trust and security with the hope of giving you the best experience of therapy.
