About me and my therapy practice
In these busy times of constantly looking and thinking ahead and due to the chronic nature of stress today, we often do not leave enough time to look within, or to replenish ourselves so that we can move forward. I can provide you with the time and space to reflect on why you are experiencing difficulty in your life and see my role as a facilitator in providing a safe and non-judgemental environment in which to help you move forward. Because I have worked through painful issues of my own, I feel that I can be more empathic with others who recognise their own need.
I work primarily from a psychodynamic perspective. At the heart of my thinking which emanates from personal experience is a belief in the existence of an inner world through which we perceive an outer reality, where the past is alive and dynamically active in the present. My primary aim in my work is in building a therapeutic relationship based on openness and honesty which leads to trust and eventually understanding. For me, the relational aspect of my work is pivotal and research has shown that this appears to be the most important factor in the therapeutic process.
* I am currently offering counselling online via Zoom or Skype as I am unable to offer face-to-face sessions due to the pandemic. Please get in touch if you wish to have an initial conversation to see if this might suit you. Alternatively telephone support may be more appropriate.
My first session
The initial meeting allows both of us to discuss your needs and requirements which will enable you to decide whether you wish to continue or not. If you feel comfortable and wish to proceed we can agree on a contract which will outline:
1. Your needs and goals
2. How long you wish to come for.
3. Where and when we meet and fee.
Our work together is reviewed regularly is based primarily on your needs. I see you as the focus leading the way in what is talked about.
