About me and my therapy practice
Searching for the right help is not easy when life feels overwhelming. The thought of sharing very personal feelings, perhaps for the first time, can make us feel vulnerable and exposed. Finding a counsellor you are comfortable with can be your first step towards feeling heard and understood. I am a friendly and approachable person who will provide a calm and respectful counselling environment.
People come to counselling for many reasons: feeling unable to cope; feeling deeply distressed or maybe feeling that something in their life needs to change. You may be considering counselling to obtain greater understanding of issues that are currently affecting you or perhaps you want to reflect on long-standing matters from your past. Whatever you choose to bring to counselling is what we will work on together, at a pace that is right for you. The aim of counselling is to help you to feel more at ease with yourself and your life.
I am a person-centred counsellor and this is a therapy which offers you the opportunity to share thoughts, feelings and possibly behaviours which may have been causing you some difficulty or distress.
Approaching a counsellor for the first time can be a bit stressful in itself. I offer a free 15 minute telephone consultation when I can answer any questions you have and our talk could give you some indication of whether I might be the right person to work with you.
I work in private practice with adults on a one to one basis. I am currently offering sessions online or by telephone.
My first session
The first session is an introduction for us to each other. I would like to hear what has brought you to counselling and how you might hope to benefit from therapy.
You might want to know what to expect in future sessions and I will briefly describe person-centred counselling and explain how we might work together if you decide to continue.
This first hour will offer you the the space and time to talk openly and to feel heard. In subsequent sessions we will work in this same way as you explore the things you want to change to help you to reach a better place in your life..
