About me and my therapy practice
My name is Vanessa and I work with both adults and children in my practice. I am an integrative counsellor, which means I use a combination of approaches tailored to the needs of my clients such as person-centred and CBT, to examine current thoughts and feelings, as well as psychodynamic exploration of the past to help reach an understanding of the issues being faced. Each client is unique, and I welcome their thoughts about the direction in which they would like their therapy sessions to take. I am an approved therapist for Anxiety UK and am particularly experienced in working with clients struggling with anxiety and depression. This can range from mild stress and low mood to a feeling of being completely debilitated
I am also an experienced child therapist, having worked in schools for the past 3 years with children from ages 5 to 14. I have worked successfully with children on issues such as low self-esteem, anxiety and depression, and supported them in coping with challenging situations such as family upheaval, trauma, transition bereavement.
I work with children and adults finding it hard to manage ADHD and autism.
You do not need a diagnosis to come for therapy, you may not even be able to identify what the issue is. Something might just feel ‘off’, or you may feel stuck and unable to understand why. Together we can work out how to help you get back on track.
I work at Libertas Therapy in Lymm which is a lovely warm and relaxing environment for clients. I also work online with adults as I know this suits some people better due to time commitments or a desire to engage with therapy in their own home. i take time to get to know my clients and really try to tune in to their needs and how they will feel most comfortable and at ease in our sessions.
I charge £50 per face-to-face session and £40 per online session.
My first session
I offer an initial 50 minute session for £25 with no obligation to take it further. This is so my clients, whether adults or children can get a feel for if they want to continue with therapy with me. It is so important to me that everyone I work with feels comfortable and that it is the 'right fit' for them.
