About me and my therapy practice
I primarily work face to face as I believe that my clients achieve and benefit from the best results this way. I feel that the personal touch and good therapeutic relationship building works better in the room together. My new, fresh room is situated in a quiet area of the village and provide a warm, secure, safe environment where clients can fully relax and talk in confidence. The room itself has nice comfortable chairs, lots of light, nice and airy in a quiet wing of the building. I work with adults over 18 and I'm training towards couples counselling in the near future. I do also offer online and telephone counselling for the time being.
I am a fully qualified professional counsellor, trained in practice and education in Therapeutic counselling. I am a “Person centred” counsellor. This means that you, as a client are the centre of my complete attention. You will lead the way and I will be there, right beside you on your unique journey. We will use reflection, and focus down on the issues that you raise, without pressure. I have a huge amount of empathy; I am congruent and non-judgemental of your situation, problems, decisions or circumstances. I offer compassion and empathy, and help you work through feelings of feeling "stuck". Some of the issues I can help you with include:
• Depression and Anxiety • Low self esteem • Grief and Loss • Divorce and Relationships • Rape and Sexual abuse • Hoarding • Bullying in the workplace
This list is not exhaustive as I will work with what you want to bring into the room, and explore all avenues with care and attention. We can talk about childhood experiences and life changing events that have made you feel angry, confused, stressed or excluded perhaps. If you need help with your self confidence or want to make that first step in healing your wounds, please contact me for a free 20 minute consultation.
My first session
I initially offer a free 20 minute consultation by telephone to see if I can help you and you can tell me your presenting issues. If you you are unsure of what you are feeling, that's fine too! This phone-call also enables you to get a feel of, or gauge a sense whether you would feel comfortable with me, to take away any uncertainty before you meet me in the room, as I understand that meeting a new person for the first time can be very daunting for most clients, especially when you will be trusting me with all your private experiences, thoughts and feelings. Our first session in the room will be setting out a working agreement, which is basically a contract to protect us both, which includes confidentiality.
