About me and my therapy practiceI am a humanistic counsellor providing one-to-one counselling in Tamworth, Staffordshire. At present I am working via telephone or Zoom online. I have worked as a counsellor since 2005. I am an Accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy(BACP) and abide by their code of ethics, and am on their professional standards authority accredited register.
Practice descriptionMy aim is to offer you a safe confidential space in which to explore your world, and help you make sense of some of the issues that may be affecting you. I am a warm, caring person, who is willing to journey with you for however long you need my support. This may be a matter of weeks, months or longer. My approach encompasses you holistically. I work relationally in the here-and-now to raise your awarenesses and increase your choices.
My first sessionThe first session I have with clients is always a mutual assessment session. This is an opportunity for us both to see whether we feel we could work together, and to answer any questions you may have. If we agree to work together, we will then sign a contract formalising our agreement. The contract will usually be for an initial series of six weekly sessions, which will get reviewed half-way through. Each session is booked for 50 minutes. The length of time I see clients for depends on individual circumstances, and can be weeks, months or longer. This is a mutual decision and will be reviewed at regular intervals. If you wish to finish counselling this is your decision, but I would ask you to attend a final session to make sure that we attend to the ending properly.
