About me and my therapy practice

I understand how daunting taking your first steps into therapy can be. I offer an honest non judgemental relationship in therapy. Looking at your personal difficulties from your reference point with empathy and understanding.

My aim is to raise your personal awareness about your life, then arm you with a set of tools you can use forever to manage this.

To invest time into your life, thoughts and behaviour is a brave and challenging step, the reward however is to own these things by acknowledging their existence and value in your life. This will allow you to make choices in your life, that is a gift to yourself.

Practice description

I offer Integrative counselling, as the name suggests, this is a combined approach to psychotherapy that brings together different elements of specific therapies. Integrative therapists take the view that there is no single approach that can treat each client in all situations. Rather, each person needs to be considered as a whole and counselling techniques must be tailored to their individual needs and personal circumstances.

The integrative approach also refers to the infusion of a person's personality and needs - integrating the affective, behavioural, cognitive, and physiological systems within one person, as well as addressing social and spiritual aspects. Essentially, integrative counsellors are not only concerned with what works, but why it works - tailoring therapy to their clients and not the client to the therapy.

My first session

Our first session would be an assessment, and a counselling contract so that you have a reference point for our time together, I offer this as a free session for payment.

This is so you can make a decision about my approach and our therapeutic relationship together, its your choice if you wish to proceed with therapy.

Our first counselling session will commence in session two, look forward to hearing from you,

take care,

Graham.
