About me and my therapy practice
In these unprecedented and difficult times you may be feeling anxious, isolated, unsure about the future. You may not be able to discuss these feelings with family or friends. I offer counselling by telephone, or on-line via Skype or Zoom.
I firmly believe that we ourselves have the means to solve any problem we may encounter. Counselling helps us to do this by providing an understanding, confidential and supportive environment for us to explore whatever may be troubling us. This exploration allows us to identify and understand the source of our difficulties, get a clearer view of how and why this currently affects us, and enables us to start thinking about what we can do to reduce the impact these difficulties are having on our life. This will help us take control of the situation and feel much more positive about our lives.
My training is Person-Centred. This means we will talk about what you want to discuss, and work at your pace. My starting point is that you are the expert on your life. My job is to assist and encourage you to gain a better understanding of whatever difficulties you are experiencing, in a safe, accepting and supportive environment. We may work towards this in an open-ended manner, until you feel you have reached your goal, or you may prefer to agree to a limited number of counselling sessions.
My first session
During our first session we will discuss what has brought you to counselling. I may also ask you to tell me a little bit about your history. You will be able to ask any questions you may have about the counselling process. We will also discuss the terms of the contract, and methods of payment.
