About me and my therapy practice
Deciding that you need professional help to work through any issues you have is the first step, and i appreciate that it is not always easy. We all have paths in life that we do our best to navigate through, but sometimes this does not always go as planned.
This may cause stress, anxiety, low self-esteem and confidence, relationship issues, addictions, compulsions, loneliness, isolation and feeling very overwhelmed, just to name a few.
Communicating thoughts and feelings with others can be difficult for fear of being judged or thinking others do not understand your struggles which is common, and can leave the person feeling isolated, vulnerable and a burden to others. This is the reason people turn to counselling and the next step is finding a counsellor that you are comfortable with and able to trust.
This can a be daunting prospect as counsellors have different approaches they use. My approach is one that is based on a good therapeutic relationship between us, offering you a safe space that is confidential, non-judgemental, warm, comfortable and supportive, where we can explore your issues and difficulties together.
As a therapist, i understand that sharing your problems with me can be painful so i do not work to any set agenda or strategy to put in place, only a deep level of acceptance and respect for you as fellow human being. My goal as a therapist is to fully understand what it is like in your world and during our time together, commit to being with you throughout our sessions.
I fully appreciate that life can at times be difficult and challenging but we will look closely at whatever it is that is causing you distress and help you on a journey to a more fulfilled future and a better understanding of yourself as an individual by reaching your goals and finding positive coping strategies and tools to put in place.
I offer remote counselling sessions if you are unable to travel and am happy to to come to your home for counselling sessions depending on where you are located.
I also work at The Eaves practises for face to face counselling sessions located in Guildford, Godalming and Farnham.
I offer a free 20 minute initial consultation online, where you can decide if I am the right therapist for you, and if you decide I am not I will help refer you to an alternative therapist.
I provide the space during our sessions in which we work together to explore your thoughts and feelings, and I can offer different ways of working so you can find what works best for you.
The aim of us working together is for you to find the tools and techniques to move forward and apply in situations you had perhaps previously struggled in and understand more about who you are as an individual.
My first session
During our first session I am more than aware that you may feel nervous and apprehensive. My aim is to make you feel as comfortable as possible and I am happy for you to ask me any questions about how we will work together and anything about me and my practice as a therapist.
During our first session I will let you know about our review sessions which are for us to talk about how you feel the therapy is progressing for you.
Coming to counselling in my opinion means you have taken that massive first step in wanting to explore what is stopping you from living the life you want.
I will be on the journey with you to work through your issues so you are not alone, and together we can work on getting you to a place of clarity and happiness.
My sessions are for 50 minutes on a weekly basis whether face to face, online or home visits.
