About me and my therapy practice
I believe I might have quite a good idea of how painful life can become, but also, just how difficult it is to seek out help, to find the right person to talk with about the things that are hurting and troubling you. If then, you want to check me out further so that you can decide if I am the right counsellor for you, I offer a free first session with no obligations to continue. You might also care to take look at my website. This will tell you a lot more about me. (www.normajamescounselling.me.uk
I am a BACP accredited, Person-Centred counsellor with over 20 years of experience. I can offer you a safe and confidential environment within which I will listen carefully and respectfully to all you wish to say to me. I won’t judge you, I won’t direct your thoughts and feelings or tell you what I think is best for you. I am happy to work with you at a pace that is right for you.
I believe that through this kind of counselling relationship, within which you feel heard, and importantly, really understood and accepted, you will start to make sense of what has been troubling you and, if it is what you wish, discover what steps you could take to change this.
My first session
Our first session will allow you an opportunity to check out if I am the person with whom you wish to talk about what it is that is troubling you, and prompted you to seek help from another.
During the session, you might tell me a bit about what has brought you to my practice and how you might want me to help. I'll tell you as much about my practice as you wish to know. At the end of the session which lasts up to 45 minutes, I'll ask you if you wish to meet with me again.
If so, I'll send you a contract and a privacy statement, which outlines in a more formal way, how we'll be working together. This will include clear details of how my counselling relationship with you will be kept confidential. We'll also come to an agreement about the fee for our sessions. Should you not wish to continue, then I'll do my best to find you a suitable referral.
