About me and my therapy practice
My aim in counselling is to give you the opportunity to feel understood and heard in your life, improve and explore your self- awareness, and to explore the way you perceive what you do and it's meaning. Or maybe to help you work through any issues in order to become the best, happier and and more contented.
I recognise the need to facilitate the process of helping my clients repair damage caused by current and earlier experiences and my aim is to offer conditions to help them love and believe in themselves to achieve acceptance and autonomy.
In personal therapy, I offer boundaries of space and time, the qualities of a holding environment. The emphasis on regular and continuous sessions helps my client feel safe which may be in contrast to their normal rules of social interaction and experience with relationships through their life.
I am an integrative therapist which means that I am able to work with a number of psychological approaches tailor made to suit you and your needs.
I have worked with a wide range of issues for different counselling organisations, schools and a financial organisation over a number of years with adults and children.
I work with adults and young people over 16.
I work online, face to face and, telephone and I also offer walking therapy.
Sessions are for 50 minutes weekly, usually on the same day and time, although I am flexible if your work/life pattern doesn't allow this.
I offer regular reviews where we will discuss how our sessions are going, this will also be an opportunity to revisit your goals in therapy and check progress.
My first session
This is when we discuss what has brought you to therapy, your personal history, current situation and how the issues are affecting your life now and in the past. I will also be gathering background information and discussing the therapy agreement. Most importantly, it is an opportunity for us to decide whether we are happy to work together.
After an initial telephone conversation, I will arrange an assessment with you, either on the phone, face to face or zoom, whichever you prefer.
