About me and my therapy practice
I work from an integrative perspective, with a deep connection to a person centred approach.
My counselling offers a warm, understanding space with empathy for clients to explore their feelings in safety and in confidence.
I feel that the therapeutic relationship between counsellor and client is essential for growth and change.
I practice from a garden room at my home, counselling online, via telephone and face to face. My face to face work is currently suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Online and telephone counselling offer support with convenience, saving on both time and travel. It is also a way of accessing therapy whilst living keeping safe from infection. Online and telephone therapy still allow for a therapeutic connection and for some clients is a preferable way of working together.
My counselling room is secure and private, all notes are kept locked away. For face to face clients there is a discreet entrance with no public signage. I offer single use water bottles for hygiene reasons and provide hand sanitiser. The room is cleaned between clients and we are sitting 2 metres apart.
My first session
From receiving your initial enquiry, I will respond within 48 hours if not much sooner. I then offer an initial 20 minute telephone call to discuss your hopes. This is not however a counselling session, just an opportunity for you to ask questions and give me an idea of what you hope to achieve. If we feel that you would like to begin counselling, and that we can work together, I send out my counselling agreement and a simple form to complete and return.
We then arrange your first session at a mutually convenient time, as soon as possible. Payment is then made ahead of that session.
