About me and my therapy practice

I offer individual sessions of 50 minutes duration both time limited and open ended. 

The first session is always an opportunity for us both to decide whether we can work together.

Practice description

My theoretical orientation is Person centred so what this means is I work with you on what you bring to our sessions. This might mean at times that you come looking for alternative ways of dealing with issues in which case we will look at developing alternative coping strategies and it can mean that you come looking for that safe confidential space to work through things just by talking and being heard without specific direction. There maybe times that you come looking for specific advice and where I can I will point you in the direction where you can acquire the information youre looking for.   

My first session

when you come for your first session it can be nerve wracking and Im very aware it can have been a soul searching process to get to this point. So with this in mind our first session is very much about us getting to know each other briefly, to identify what it is youre wanting to explore in counselling and any thoughts you may have around how you will know counselling is making the difference you are looking for. It is also about us both together deciding whether we can work together or not. It is so important that we 'fit' ...like a pair of shoes so to speak; because of this it maybe that we discuss other options available to you that are going to be more helpful right now. At the end of the first session we will have together decided if we wish to proceed. You wont see me taking notes during sessions however I do hand write notes after the session and these are available for you to see at any time.
