I generally see clients on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings, however I have some flexibility at times so please don't hesitate to request alternative evenings. Online sessions are available most evenings and weekends.
About me and my therapy practice
Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile.
I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling from Inter-Psyche Training Institute, Kent - the only counselling and psychotherapy training provider based within the NHS. I have experience working with a wide range of emotional and mental health problems.
I would welcome the chance to have initial email contact with you so we can determine whether I may be the right counsellor for you. If we proceed I can promise you judgement free support, empathy and compassion as you set the pace for our work together.
In searching for a counsellor you have already taken a significant step in the right direction towards self-awareness and personal growth. You may be feeling overwhelmed or upset by current difficulties or be concerned that you're not feeling what you "should" be feeling about something or someone. In working with me you can expect a safe, confidential space in which together we can explore what's going on for you. I will support you to understand and accept yourself and/ or identify and implement change in your life.
My first session
In our first session I will ask why you have decided to seek support at this time and what you hope to gain from our work together. This is an opportunity for you to describe the internal and external challenges you are facing and for me to assess whether what I can provide is the best support for you or if I should refer you to another professional trained in a different modality.
