About me and my therapy practice
I have diplomas in person centred counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy and psychology.
I have 9 years counselling experience in the N.H.S. working at a G.P. surgery, medical centre and hospital.
I have a proven track record working with clients that have a range of issues causing anxiety and depression
I can work on a one to one basis with adults aged from 16 years offering short term or long term therapy.
As we work through therapy I will give the client coping strategies that will help them to move on in their life.
I use the N.H.S. recognised GAD 7 and DHQ 9 to measure the level of anxiety/depression when a client starts therapy and again when they finish to measure the changes and evaluate the benefits to therapy.
My first session
My preference is to have a brief phone conversation with a potential client to discuss whether I can help them with their issues.
In the first session I will discuss my contract along with an overview of confidentiality and how the sessions will run.
I will also ask the client to complete the GAD 7 and DHQ 9.
This will take about 10 to 15 minutes before your first session commences.
At the end of the session I will usually give the client some homework to help them to start taking control of their life.
