About me and my therapy practice
I'm a fully qualified experienced therapist with a deep passion for working with a range of RELATIONSHIP CHALLENGES.
You can expect me to be straightforward. I'll share with you openly yet gently want I think is really going on. I am committed to seeing you through your struggles.
So, whether you're:
- a mother struggling in your relationship with your child or motherhood itself
- a couple in crisis
- experiencing recurring relationship problems
- still searching for that elusive romantic relationship or first date
I’m keen to work with you.
I find that by exploring your personal history we can often discover the root cause of your challenges so you can get out of your own way and begin enjoying intimacy and connection.
Your therapy is tailored to you. It isn't a programme out of a book. It is a unique relationship between us informed by everything I've learnt about you with the aim of enriching and challenging you & your relationships.
There's not much that shocks me. I'm robust, yet warm. I have a healthy sense of humour which can be surprisingly useful when we're broaching tricky or taboo topics.
I completed a 3-year full time post graduate training in Psychosynthesis Counselling.
My training included all the major psychological models; and it also focuses on not just removing your problems or symptoms (although this is obviously valuable and what brings you here) but on cultivating a way of being in relationships and life that brings you greater joy and meaning.
I work with individuals and couples. I am currently also completing a Certificate in Couples Therapy which is approved by COSRT (College of Sexual & Relationship Therapy).
I do work with a variety of issues besides relationships; so, you're still very welcome to get in touch if something else about my profile resonates with you and you would like to consider working together.
My first session
If you're interested in starting therapy, please drop me an email or a text. You can expect me to reply either on the same day or next day (excluding weekends). Please check your junk folder as emails sometimes go here.
We can either have some email correspondence and book in a first session or we can arrange a free 15-minute phone consultation for you to get a sense of me and ask any questions.
I am unable to take unscheduled calls but you're very welcome to leave me a voicemail and I will get back to you proposing a time for us to catch up.
The first session is about us getting to know each other. I will ask you to talk about what brings you to counselling, your goals and desires for our work, and to share some of your personal history. At the end of this session it is likely that we will have a good idea as to whether we want to start working together, although sometimes you will already know this after our first consultation.
Once the decision is made to continue I will discuss how we will work together, this is what is known as a working agreement. This agreement will outline the confidential nature of the sessions, the cancellation policy and establish our commitment to working together in regular weekly sessions. We may decide to work together for a set number of sessions or in an open-ended contract. This will vary depending on both the issue you are bringing and what you wish to get out of therapy. We will discuss this and agree on it together.
