About me and my therapy practice
I am an experienced (over 20 years) counsellor who works with Individuals and Couples to help them achieve a better way of being. I work in two settings both quiet and professional.
I can work online but prefer face-to-face as the information from body language helps me in my work and therefore you to.
I worked for many years for the NHS and provided short term counselling from 6-20 weeks but also I have worked for much longer with other clients.
I continue to work for Relate (now The Change Portfolio in Chelmsford) seeing Couples and Individuals and use my long experience to help them achieve what they want.
I have worked with Adults, individually and in couples for over 20 years. I work in a Person Centred & Psychodynamic way to help clients get to where they want to be in life - self actualisation.
I may also use other paradigms such as Transactional Analysis in couples work and some CBT in anxiety/phobia treatment.
I have worked with clients male, female and transgender aged from 17-80. I have helped couples and individuals going through infertility, depression, anxiety and identity/sexuality.
The therapeutic alliance can heal old wounds and find new purpose to life.
My first session
At the first session you will be welcomed and I will gain an overview of you and your situation and whether or not I can help - it might be better to work with someone trained in a certain area - and you can get a feeling about how I work and whether we can work together therapeutically.
If we both feel we can work therapeutically well then further session will be booked at a regular day and time. You are in control of how long these sessions go on for, with my help guiding you.
