I am not seeing clients face-to-face for the present time. I can offer sessions on zoom, telephone or skype. I work Monday to Thursday offering appointments from 8.00 a.m until 6.00 p.m.
About me and my therapy practice
I am an integrative therapist. I aim to offer my clients a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space where they can talk about difficulties and underlying feelings. It is through this relationship built on trust that clients can gain greater understanding of themselves and their problems, in order to then manage better, and to implement changes and live life more resourcefully.
I can offer long or short term contracts. Each session is 50 minutes. Confidentiality is assured. I have regular supervision and attend Continuing Professional Development courses. I specialise in supporting clients and families affected by cancer and loss.
My first session
For me, the first session is very much an information gathering and exchanging opportunity between client and therapist. I do complete an initial assessment form and invite the potential client to ask any questions they may have. I am aware that sometimes making the initial contact with a counsellor is the hardest part of seeking help. It may be helpful to ask why now and what are their expectations? An initial session often evokes a heightened sense of anxiety - a remembrance of other beginnings. Concerns on both a practical and emotional level may be present. It is to be expected and anticipated. An acknowledgement by me of the clients efforts and recognition of their struggle to do something, to explore the situation may have a positive impact on this new relationship and help to low defences and anxieties. I normally allow 75 minutes for this initial session but charge my standard fee.
