About me and my therapy practice
You come to me because you want a very clear understanding and analysis of what you are experiencing and how to treat the issues. You want to be treated fairly, without judgement; directly, and with intelligence by someone with considerable life skills & experience. You would like to be able to quickly and easily form a strong relationship with your therapist that provides safety, confidentiality, trust and most of all a sense of hope. You want your therapist to be very well informed academically, with considerable skill and experience in being able to explain theory and how it applies to you. Couples and families welcome.
I offer an immediate relief of suffering through the use of various talking, listening, analytical and cognitive tools. We will work together to form a strong and trusting relationship that can withstand tension and frankness. We will gently explore the deep causes of your experience, helping you to understand you own life's meanings and relationships. You'll be very warmly, openly and non-judgementally received. We offer a flexible and pragmatic service wholly designed to place you at the centre of your experience. You simply bring yourself and your problem and we will apply considerable skill to help you move forward with hope and a greater deeper understanding. Lots of testimonials at the website.
My first session
We will meet and see if we are a good warm match and do a brief assessment to ensure we are safe to work with each other. We discuss ethics and confidentiality and see if we can secure a set of aims and objectives you might have for our work. I will explain the challenges and difficulties therapy can bring and how I am supported by the bodies are am certificated with and how you can express any dissatisfaction. I'll answer any questions you have n explain how i work and the options available to the therapy.
