About me and my therapy practice
I am an experienced IAPT licensed CfD Practitioner, Counsellor and CBT Therapist. Being a registered and accredited member of the BACP means that I have met the required standards of training, supervision and continuing professional development, and am committed to working within the Ethical Framework of the organisation. Over the past 12 years I have worked in a variety of agency settings, GP practices and at my home address. Currently I work within the NHS, privately, and am also a counsellor for Employee Assistance Programmes. Having originally trained integratively, I am also a qualified CBT therapist, and am able to offer this as a stand alone approach in my practice.
Currently due to Covid 19 I am working remotely via phone, Whatsapp or Zoom. I am able to work flexibly, although cannot offer evening appointments at this time.
My first session
Counselling is an opportunity to explore your emotions and experiences, understand yourself better, and discover what lies behind the things that are troubling you, or keeping the difficulty going. During your first session I will explain the boundaries and limitations of the contract with you (confidentiality, cancellation policy etc) and will then listen and try to understand in a non judgmental way, the issues which concern you. I will work with you to identify your goals for therapy, and explore the approach that is most appropriate to your needs.
In order to achieve the most out of your sessions, it is important that you feel comfortable working with your therapist . At the end of your first session I will explore options going forward, and discuss next steps with you. There is no obligation to continue if you do not wish to. Likewise, if at any point I felt that I was not the best person to be working with you, I would declare this and seek to offer an alternative.
