About me and my therapy practice

Situations in life can sometimes make you to feel terrified and alone. I provide a safe space for us to talk together. We will explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours in the hope of gaining a better understanding of your situation and also to recognise the different choices you have.

My background is in psychodynamic counselling. However, I also use the Integrative concepts to guide my work and practice. I am an experienced counsellor who combines the psychodynamic and Integrative approaches to work creatively in the therapeutic space. 

In our work together, we will revisit your past experience to gain a better understanding of your presenting challenges. Our work together will involve creating an awareness of your current situation by examining the unconscious processes that are occurring. Hopefully, this will promote a change in your future decisions.  

 

Practice description

I offer sessions online or in-person.

The session is held once or twice weekly.

Our first conversation is a 20-minute free telephone consultation.

It is followed by a 50-minute fee-paying assessment.  

After the assessment, I may offer you six sessions with a review of therapy in our 4th session. 

You can end therapy at session 6 or continue into open-ended work. It means that you determine when you want to stop therapy.

My first session

Providing we go ahead with the assessment, I will give you information about how I work.

I will also collect some personal information from you. The information includes your name, address, next of kin and general practice details. It provides consent for us to work together and will be used in an emergency situation. 

Regular therapy sessions including the assessment last for 50 minutes. In the assessment, we will discuss your presenting issues, family background needs and wants from therapy.

The weekly therapy sessions also last for 50 minutes.

Practice description

I use both these principles to guide my thinking and processing of the work. I have the experience, skills, and knowledge to effectively tailor my approach to work with various presentations.
