About me and my therapy practice
My focus is you, my client or patient, and how I can best be of help to you. Some clients are looking for more guidance and others less so and want to have the opportunity to speak without being interrupted. Together we are working out how you like to be helped.
You may not know what it is that’s affecting you, or the reasons for it, so we will discuss this and gain some clarity to help us move forward. The goal is to make you feel better able to enjoy your life, reduce anxiety and stress and whatever else is bothering you.
I have long experience working in both private practice and primary care settings in the NHS, with time-limited therapy as well as open-ended therapy.
I look forward to welcoming you to our collaborative work and am happy to answer any questions you have. A chat over the phone initially is sometimes of help, and I encourage you to make contact they way you see fit.
Nowadays I offer virtual talking therapy for the most part, that is via video link. In my experience having visual input as well as audio input is a more fulfilling experience than simply over the phone. I am flexible and open to working in a way that will be of most help to you.
In the initial consultation I will ask more questions than in subsequent sessions so that I can get to know you. I welcome you to tell me as much as you feel able to.
My first session
The first meeting with a new therapist can be worrying perhaps. I will make sure that you know what is going on and provide structure and balance so that you feel free to express yourself and what is concerning you.
