About me and my therapy practice
There are many reasons why someone may want to see a therapist, whether you are feeling depressed, are having difficulties with a relationship or feel like you just aren't who you used to be. Dealing with your problems alone can feel isolating. We all have difficulties in our lives and we react to these difficulties in very different ways. Therapy is a place to begin to understand your relationship with your difficulties and how this relationship affects your life.
It can help to speak to someone outside of your normal friendship group about your problems within a space free of judgement. Sessions are directed by my clients and I think of therapy as a way for myself and my clients to learn about who they are and how they function in the outside world. By doing this we can look at how you can better live with and manage the things that are bringing you to therapy.
I typically see clients once weekly for 50 minutes and we can discuss over what period we see each other when we meet. Many clients find it helpful to see a therapist over a few years once they begin to learn more about themselves while others are content to have a smaller number of sessions. The choice is yours and something we can discuss in our first session. If you would like to learn more about yourself, call, text or email.

My first session
It is important to feel safe when first meeting a therapist so I suggest to clients that the first client is used to discuss what is bringing them to therapy and to ask any questions they might have about me. It is normal to feel worried, anxious or scared the first time you go to therapy and it might take you a while to get there.
The best thing I can suggest is to give it a try and see how you feel. Talking about what happens in the room with your therapist is just as important as speaking about the problems that brought you into the room.
