About me and my therapy practice
Compassion, kindness and my own intense and informative life experiences form my approach with clients. Knowledge, training and skills are vital but at the core is warmth, compassion, acceptance and understanding. Technically, I am an integrative therapist which simply means I adopt practices from different models of therapy suich as the Person Centred Approach, Psychodynamics and the Transpersonal amongst others.
In my private practice I can see clients face-to-face or am well versed at counselling over Zoom. Many therapists offer the "50 minute" hour. My sessions are for a full hour as clients appreciate this and often there is so much to say in such a short time.
My first session
The primary function of the 1st session is to establish whether we can work together well. Whether we are a good fit. Whether we have some personal rapport and can thus build a deep secure relationship allowing the client to be really open and honest and without fear of being judged. Technically, this session is also used to negotiate the counselling contract which sitpulates the practical, logistical and therapeutic aspects of our relationship. The 1st session is the venue for the client to express what they would like to achieve through therapy and to question the therapist about anything and everything.
