About me and my therapy practice
I believe it is really important therapeutically to work in a way which suits your needs. It could be that you only need a brief course of counselling, or an open-ended approach, or that you require therapy which is longer lasting. Together we will discuss what feels right for you.
I will listen with empathy and we will work collaboratively to find a positive way forward for you. The relationship between you and any counsellor you choose is really important as a good one will help you to feel comfortable to talk about your inner feelings. It could be that the events of the past are preventing you from moving forward in your life or that a situation happening in the here and now is affecting how you are coping with life. Whatever your circumstances, I will sit alongside you, helping you to find a greater understanding of your situation and to develop skills which will benefit you now and into your future.
I provide face to face sessions, telephone and online counselling sessions, all lasting an hour. Face to face sessions take place in a comfortable and confidential counselling setting in the PL4 area of Plymouth.
Before the first session, I always offer a free 30 minute consultation for us to discuss what you would like from counselling and whether I feel like the right counsellor for you. There is no obligation to continue.
My first session
After our initial free consultation, the first session will be a chance for you to talk about what brings you to counselling at this time, and how we might work together to help best support you. It is an opportunity to start to get to know one another so that you feel comfortable enough to talk about what is important for you.
