About me and my therapy practice
As a counsellor my goal is to help you cope better with the issues that you face. Counselling may not always be able to change your circumstances, but I can help you cope with them in a different way. My specialist areas are working with illness, loss and bereavement and extreme stress and anxiety. I also help you become more confident, with better self esteem and self worth and also help you to challenge your negative thinking.
As an Integrative Therapist I am able to use different counselling techniques, depending on your need and preferences. My approach is always client centred. Some of the styles I may use with you include person-centred counselling, solution focused therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, transactional analysis and positive psychology.
I provide and safe, non-judgemental and confidential space where you can explore the issues that brought you into counselling. I am able to offer long term or short term counselling, depending on your need and situation. I start with an initial session where we explore what has brought you into counselling and how I can help. Further sessions are then arranged on a weekly basis.
I have worked for over nine years with people who have been affected by life changing or life limiting illness. I have also worked for a mental health charity, so I have a wealth of experience to draw upon and I aim to make counselling a positive experience for you.
Please feel free to contact me to book an initial assessment.
The clinic in Brentwood has a reception area where you can sit and wait for your appointment.
My room is located upstairs, so please ensure that you are able to climb the stairs to see me here.
I have other locations which are more accessible if that is required.
My first session
Your initial session with myself is a chance for us to get to know each other. I have a simple assessment form which I ask you to fill in.
We then use the rest of the time to explore what has brought you to counselling and how I may be able to help.
At the end you can decide if you wish to book further sessions.
