About me and my therapy practice
I am an experienced counsellor who believes everyone has the potential for change. I have been qualified for 16 years and completed my training at a local Mind charity where I spent almost three years working with a diverse range of individuals presenting with very different mental health issues. Further to this I have worked in the community for the past 12 + years. I now work from home online via video call.
I am able to work with most issues as I believe the client's feelings are the priority and despite our many different and varied experiences, ultimately we are all human. Although I work primarily within a person-centred framework I adapt my approach to meet my clients needs as one size does not fit all and am therefore using an integrative model of working.
I am a warm and caring person and aim to ensure I work ethically and non-judgmentally with all my clients. I can offer a honest and congruent space within which you can be assured you will feel safe in the knowledge that the work is confidential and that it is carried out within professional boundaries.
I work online via video call.
My first session
During the first session we will discuss the counsellor/client contract and I will email this to you should you choose to continue.
I will also discuss my duty of care as a counsellor with reference to safeguarding, record keeping and data protection.
I will then explain confidentiality and exceptions (with regards to safeguarding).
I will then tell you a little about how I work, the models I work with and the process of counselling (if needed).
You will have an opportunity to then discuss your issue and we can make a plan as to how we can move forward together to work towards resolving your issue.
I am passionate about working with people within the therapeutic boundaries and ethical framework as advocated by BACP. I can offer a warm empathetic space within which we can build a trusting relationship.
