About me and my therapy practice
Relationships with humans can be difficult, confusing, risky or even destructive.
Do you keep finding yourself in relationships with 'the wrong' people? Are relationships with family members, strained or not as you'd like them to be? Do you find yourself falling out with work colleagues or friends but not really understanding why?
Perhaps infidelity been part of your relationships or you want to explore different kinds of relationships that may not fit the expectations of others.
Or perhaps you're in a relationship with a drugs, alcohol or gambling and you're struggling to break free from this.
And of course, relationships can end, sometimes through choice but often often in ways we weren't expecting.
Having a weekly therapy space to talk and make sense of your relationships and experiences can really help you to find new ways of living and being in the world, to make sense of your emotions and make changes in your life.
I am fully qualified and have been working as an integrative therapist since 2015.
Prior to completing my training as a therapist, I worked in the charity sector for twelve years as a support worker, working with homeless people, people with mental health issues, drug, alcohol and gambling addictions and in the women's sector, with women affected by domestic abuse.
I will work with whatever issues you choose to bring to our sessions but I have a particular interest in working with family issues, relationship issues and bereavement.
My first session
After you have contacted me, we will arrange a free 10-15 minute phone call so I can get at a sense of what you're looking for from sessions and whether my way of working is what you're looking for, then we can arrange a first session. I will then email you to confirm our initial session appointment along with further information about my practice, which will cover confidentiality, cancellations and other relevant information.
Our first session will give us both an opportunity to meet and for you to tell me more about yourself, what issues have brought you to therapy and what you're looking to gain from sessions.
I will ask you questions about your upbringing, your family and your relationships, which will help me to understand you and your experiences and help me to put your difficulties into context. You can also ask me any questions about how I work and I will tell you how think I can help you.
Towards the end of the session, we will decide if we want to continue working together or if you'd prefer to have some time to think about it, you're welcome to do so and contact me later with your decision.
