About me and my therapy practice
I welcome short and long term work on a wide range of issues. I have a special interest in the ways our lives can be restricted or difficult now because of patterns created to cope with unmet needs in childhood, or with abuse or trauma. I also offer art, psychodrama and other creative explorations but only if this is right for you. LGBTQIA clients, including non-binary, and those questioning their sexual or gender identity, are very welcome, as are partners and family members experiencing difficulties with a loved-one's orientation or identity. I have a diploma (with distinction) in online psychotherapy and two years' experience in working this way. I can work with you by video link, voice (including telephone) or email, wherever in the UK you live.
My first session
A first session is always exploratory, with no pressure to continue if it doesn't feel right for you. It is a chance for you to ask questions and for me to check that the work you wish to do lies within my field of expertise. Most importantly, it is an opportunity to find out whether we might create a good rapport and work well together.
If you are beginning work as an online or telephone client, I will first ask you to complete a questionnaire to be sure that this type of communication is suitable for you, and to sign a written contract tailor-made for online/telephone work. As part of this process, we can exchange emails or have a phone call to clarify any concerns. This preparation ensures that the work proceeds within safe boundaries. If all is satisfactory we would then make our first appointment.
