About me and my therapy practice
A very warm welcome to my profile.
Taking the first step towards contacting a Counsellor can be a big one and certainly not one to be underestimated. Finding the right Counsellor can be daunting, it's important for you to feel comfortable and I am more than happy to help you find the right place/person during the initial stages. If we continue to work together, then we will take the journey wherever it may lead us, however if you need a specialist area of work, I will help you find it.
My role is to provide you with a safe space to explore whats going on in your life, however big or small that may seem. Together we can work at your pace to unpick whatever is troubling you and help you gain a better insight and greater understanding of yourself. I work in a private setting in a quiet location (with parking) and I am trained in a Person Centred Approach. Your session will be tailored to suit you, with your best interests at heart and with a view to finding a healthy way forward. The sessions are as individual and unique as you are, however, several things are always consistent, for example, the level of listening, empathy and non-judgemental care you will receive from me.
Because we are all unique, a combined approach may be more appropriate; this brings together different elements of specific therapies. In essence, there is no single approach that can treat everyone, in all situations.
Whilst the sessions are not always easy, and I do not have a magic wand to make your problems disappear, I do ensure my full commitment to you, on what can be a bumpy road. Remember, just because something is difficult, it doesn't mean we can't challenge it together! Reconnecting with yourself, allowing yourself time and space to make decisions can provide you with a new, fresh and empowering perspective.
