About me and my therapy practice
I see personal breakdown and crisis as events that point the way to changes that help us reach our full potential. My aim is to support you as you explore those aspects of your life and behaviour that are of concern to you at the moment. I can help you to understand what is important to you, highlight and clarify issues that emerge as we talk and work towards that resolution and change.
Counselling is about changing your life for the better, working with a trusted professional. You have taken the first step towards change by reading this profile. Please call or email me to take the next step and find out more.
An experienced and well qualified therapist, I offer short and long term counselling and psychotherapy to individual adults and couples, including counselling students. Sessions generally take place weekly and last one hour. We will meet for as many (or few) times as you need. Dates and times are agreed between us to suit your life. See my website: www.valallen.com for more information about my practice.
I also offer supervision to other therapists and trainees and am a UKCP registered supervisor.
My first session
The first session offers you a chance to explain the issues that you are bringing to counselling and your goals for the work. It lets us meet each other and decide whether to work together. As part of this process I will ask questions about your situation. This will help me determine which approach will work best for you. You will find out about the way i work and have your questions answered.
We will also talk about confidentiality and how your information is protected. Finally we will talk about the practical aspects of sessions such as convenient session times, payment and cancellation.
