About me and my therapy practice

 Are you feeling: Less than. A failure. Anxious. Overwhelmed. Hurt. Lost. Confused?

These are some of the many ways you might be feeling right now. Its hard to ask for help when you are struggling with feelings that make life unbearable. Up until now you have coped and put other peoples’ needs before your own.

We all need support from time to time and its hard to admit that we’re not coping as well as we want to. Is that time now?

There comes a time in our lives when there needs to be change. When you want to make sense of what you are going through.

Recognising that you may need help through therapy can be both courageous and daunting.

Talking through these issues with someone who is not part of your life, can bring insight, which in turn, can bring change and healing.

That difference could mean being more confident, more assertive and having better relationships with other people but more importantly, yourself. Accepting that you are good enough and by starting to value yourself.

Taking that first step to access therapy and prioritising yourself if not selfish but the start of meeting the real you. The part of yourself that has been neglected, perhaps since childhood.

I see you. You matter.

If this message resonates to you, then maybe its time to follow your instincts and get in touch. Please email me and I will arrange a mutual time for us to have an informal chat to see how I can help. It will be a 15 minute free phone call or online on Google meet.

Practice description

I adopt an Integrative approach, which means that I can draw on different theories but mostly Person Centred and Psychodynamic modalities. This means that the therapy is focused on you, working collaboratively together. Using the Core Conditions of empathy, acceptance and congruence in order to find your true self; the authentic part which you may have lost along the way. Using the inner resources you already have which can give you the potential for growth. You are the expert on yourself, with guidance you will come to realise that.

Together we will go back into your past to see how it influences you in the here and now. This can be scary sometimes because there may be painful memories that you don’t want to face but in this safe environment, you will be able to process how your past experiences have made you the person you are today.

I will explore patterns of behaviour that may have served you well when you were younger but now as an adult may need to be reviewed. I will look at how you connect to others and yourself and what defence mechanisms you use and what coping strategies you have in place. If an attachment style becomes obvious, then we will explore that as relevant.

My approach is not directive so I will not tell you what to do; I may make suggestions but you have complete autonomy.

My first session

The introduction call will be free of charge for 15 minutes by video call or telephone to explore why you have come to counselling and I will explain how I work and what you can expect. If you are interested, I will book you in for the initial consultation which will include a full assessment and the time will be spent to see if I’m a good fit for you and then you can decide. This session will incur the set fee of £55.
