About me and my therapy practice

I work holistically, focusing on the whole person's, mental, physical, emotional and spiritual well being.

As an eclectic counsellor I use different models to suit the client. I believe, empathy, compassion and deep listening in my client work is pivotal for therapeutic healing.  

Using Depth psychology, Psychoanalysis we can together explore and untangle deep knots formed in childhood.  CBT is also effective, especially in short term counselling.  

I work creatively, e.g. with dreams, and at the client's pace, giving time for complex and sensitive issues to surface when the client is ready to explore these issues.  Respecting the client/clients' vulnerability is vital in our work together. 

Practice description

My practice hours are variable usually Monday-Friday 9.30-9pm - the sessions are a full hour.

I work in private practice in a comfortable, confidential setting.  I am available for individuals and couples.  Frequency of sessions is decided by the client.  Clients can select online therapy (Zoom), Telephone Counselling or attend in Person.  Individual counselling is available at £50 for the hour and £60 for couple counselling.  Concessions are available for low income and students.  I aim to meet each client's need when there is financial hardship.  This can be discussed before the session is booked.

My first session

The initial consultation is for the client to find out whether we are suited. I  have an open contract with my client, allowing them to choose when they wish to attend a session and when they wish closure.  If the client doesn't feel 'we fit' I suggest other therapists or other models for them to try.

Confidentiality is promised at the outset within the ethical guidelines of the BACP as well as the observance of boundaries. I ask that clients give me 24 hours notice for cancellation.

Biographical details and notes are taken down in the initial consultation, but thereafter notes are written up by myself after the session to enable my full attention to be given to my client in each subsequent session.
