About me and my therapy practice

**Online therapy sessions offered **

Life can be really tough and challenging at times as well as being fast paced. We don't often get the chance to take a moment and focus on how we are feeling, good or bad, so these feelings can add up and become overwhelming and all consuming. The counselling that I offer enables you to be able to take the time to talk through and explore some of these feelings and experiences. I have experience of working with adults on a short and long term basis for both Mental Health charities, addiction charity and within a NHS IAPT setting. I also have experience working with university students. 

Practice description

Working as a person centred counsellor means I will work alongside you while you explore your current or past experiences and feelings without judgment or interpretation. I will listen as you come to terms with these experiences and offer you a safe, confidential and caring space.

My first session

What to expect in the first session

Before the counselling takes place, I offer a first session where I explain the type of therapy that I offer as well as going through the Counselling contract, such as confidentiality and what you can expect from the counselling. It also gives you a chance to outline what you would like to get out of the counselling and any goals that you may want to work towards.
