About me and my therapy practice
It’s not just our physical health that is being affected by the corona virus pandemic – uncertainty, frustration, anxiety and stress, along with the huge changes in the way we now live our lives, are all having an impact on our mental health too.
You’re not alone if these changes are making you feel worried and unsure. Our situation is challenging and unpredictable, and these feelings are quite normal.
Often talking to a neutral non-judgemental person, such as me, can really help. Together we can work on what troubles you - maybe you have been feeling low for too long and want to change; perhaps you need some help with your anger or to stop feeling so anxious. Maybe you are grieving and need some help. I focus very much on the relationship between client and therapist - a working relationship that is built on respect, trust and empowerment.
Counselling gives you an opportunity to look at your life, to explore your thoughts and feelings in a non-judgemental and safe working environment. It can enable you to better understand yourself, perhaps by exploring your past and by expressing difficult feelings. Counselling aims to help you deal with and overcome issues that are causing emotional pain or making you feel uncomfortable, enabling you to live your life more fully.
My first session
I work to make our first session as comfortable as possible. It's a time to get to know each other and for me to listen to you. I know how a first session feels (I remember my first session well) and want to reassure you that I am there for you.
My sessions last for 50 minutes for individuals and 55 minutes for couples.
