About me and my therapy practice

I have been working in mental health now for over 10 years and understand that we are all individual and unique. No two situations are the same and we all experience the world in a different way.

My integrative  therapeutic style means that I can assist you to explore your experiences, process them safely, and form your own understanding of how some of the significant parts of your life have impacted you.

Counselling can be daunting and feel alien at the start. It is therefore important that you find a counsellor who fits your needs and meets your expectations. I offer an initial consultation and assessment for £25 so we can explore the options that are best suited to you.

Practice description

I offer two options for therapy; face to face & home sessions.

Home sessions are an option if you live within 15 miles of Abingdon.

My first session

The first  session will last for up to 50 minutes and will be a chance for us to explore your situation in some more detail. 

I will ask some questions to get a feel for what brings you to counselling and there will be time for you to ask me some questions.

I will talk a little about how I work and run through some housekeeping paperwork.

By the end of the session we can both look at what the options will look like moving forward and whether counselling is for you.
