About me and my therapy practice
Hello, I have over 13 years counselling experience in a variety of settings, including GP surgeries, voluntary sector organisations and private practice. I also work as an affiliate counsellor for BUPA, AXA/PPP, Care First and Health Assured.
I've been awarded Individual Accreditation by the BACP having demonstrated high standards of competent and ethical practice.
Experience tells me that there is no such thing as a typical client - certain types of counselling suit some people more than others, so I draw from a range of approaches to provide the right help for you. Models I've studied include, Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Compassion Focused Therapy. I am also a Mindfulness teacher.
We would normally meet in a discreet, comfortable consulting room in the centre of Shrewsbury. However, due to Covid-19, I'm currently offering sessions online using Zoom.
We would decide together how many sessions you are likely to need to achieve your goals. Often we can make a difference in as few as 6 sessions, but more can be available if needed.
If you have any questions or need more information, please feel free to get in touch.
My first session
The first appointment is an opportunity for you to see if you feel comfortable talking with me, gives you an experience of counselling and enables you to ask any questions you may have about the process. It also allows me to make a thorough assessment of your situation and goals so that I can figure out what is most likely to be helpful for you moving forwards.
At the end of the first session you may decide to book further sessions, or choose to go away and reflect on your experience before deciding whether or not to continue.
