About me and my therapy practice
By taking a huge and brave step you can start to make changes. Counselling can help - talking and sharing your feelings with someone professionally trained can make an enormous difference and give a huge sense of relief. Taking that step to email or phone can be difficult so I try to make you feel as comfortable as possible and do appreciate that it does require an element of bravery to make that first contact.
My approach is integrative within a person centred framework, building a therapeutic relationship based on the core conditions - empathy, being non-judgemental, open and honest. My practice is client led, giving the client a place to explore problems and anxieties. By exploring the feelings and fears the client can reframe the problems and recognise their own resources to become empowered.
I integrate Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Psychodynamic work and Solution Focused Therapy as appropriate.
Usually I see Clients face to face, I use a lovely light private first floor room. I am right on the Glider G1 bus route at the Summerhill stop near Stormont. I can and do offer Telephone or Video Counselling. These sessions are arranged in exactly the same way as a face to face Session - a day and time is agreed and the same boundaries apply. I do try to help Clients feel as comfortable as possible.
