With the Corona virus, I am offering online therapy, using Zoom and Skype.
I am flexible with timing, offering sessions mornings, afternoons and early evenings, Monday to Friday, and Sunday.
About me and my therapy practice
I am an experienced counsellor, with a private practice in Sheffield, but living in Derbyshire.
Currently I work mainly with adults, split between one-to-one and couples; in the past I have worked extensively with teenagers.
Online work is also one of my strengths. I have been using Skype for years with clients who cannot access face-to-face therapy; more recently I have been using Zoom and even WhatsApp. Some of my clients have wanted telephone counselling. I have also used emails for counselling, but consider this as better used in conjunction with other more direct forms of counselling.
I am Person Centred. That means that you bring your agenda and what you want from counselling. You may know what you want, but you may not: this can emerge in the course of the therapy. Always I’m there to support you, to listen to you, to ‘walk alongside’ you, never to impose any particular structure or ideas.
I am currently offering online sessions lasting an hour.
My first session
The beginning of the first session involves setting up an agreement between us. This will involve confidentiality, privacy, GDPR and other information. We will agree a fee - which will be payable by BACS.
This is necessary, but shouldn't take too long. I like as much of the first session to be about you and your issues as possible.
