About me and my therapy practice
Having spent my entire adult life in a caring profession, firstly as a nurse/senior nurse and now nearly 20 years as a therapist it is my privilege to have a natural ability to put people at ease and establish the necessary relationship that is required for effective counselling.
I have a broad theoretical background that allows me to work in a beneficial way with my clients.
I am flattered that my ability to help clients is backed backed by regular referrals from local GPs.
My aim to help clients deal with and overcome issues that are causing emotional pain or making them feel uncomfortable. I provide a safe, non-judgemental place where clients can explore their difficult feelings with the respect they deserve. It’s not about advice, it’s about helping clients find their own insights and understanding of their problems through fresh thinking and discovery.
My first session
Our first session will be 50 minutes
In this session we will need to cover a few formalities. They will include establishing mine and your targets for working together. This will allow us to create a safe, reassuring space for you to be able to talk freely, and for us to maximise the efficiency of our sessions
We will need to consider what your specific needs are from counselling and decide whether you feel that I am the best person for you to work with. This will be an important decision for you and will be totally respected by me.
