I work Monday - Friday at a variety of times including daytimes and evenings.
I will always work with you to find a consistent day and time we can meet for weekly therapy.
If you work shifts or different hours, I can be flexible about arranging sessions.
About me and my therapy practice
I will work with you to figure out what you are struggling with, learn to understand yourself and what you think, feel and need to live your best life. For some this is strategies to deal with difficult situations, for others this is talking through conflict, feelings of helplessness, despair, anger or sadness. For some others still, the goals aren't always clear and you need someone to stay with you through the darkness until you are more able to get back up and try again.
You can view a video of my room on my website so you can see where you'd be sitting and what sort of things are in the room. www.magpiecounselling.com/videos
I have a lovely, quiet and dedicated counselling room located above the Victorian Arcade on Littlehampton High Street. Free parking is one minute away with a parking disc that we or any other local shop can provide you. The train station is a pleasant 5 minute walk away through the town.
My first session
First sessions are free, and you can view a video of the sorts of things we might discuss on my website. www.magpiecounselling.com/videos
The first session is for us to get to know each other, discuss what help you are looking for, tell me a bit about what's going on for you, ask any questions we might have of each other and figure out if we'd like to work with each other.
You can ask me about how I work, what qualifications I have, how I think I might be able to help, what days and times are available or how much sessions cost, or anything else you need to know to help you decide if you'd like to start therapy with me.
I will probably ask you some questions too, like what you are struggling with, what you'd like us to talk about, what you might find difficult or are worried about with therapy, and what your goals are. If you don't know the answer to any of these, that's ok! We can figure it out together, the first session is just to help us see roughly where you need help, and what we might like to explore later.
I will give you a copy of the contract to take away with you and of course you can get back to me any time after the session with any further questions you might have.
