About me and my therapy practice
I believe our thoughts, emotions and behaviours, need to be in harmony and then we can live well and flourish.
I offer a warm welcome, a listening presence as you direct the sessions, to explore your present concerns on the backdrop of your past. I will often reflect and summarise what you have shared, offer occasional interpretation and challenge, all with your very best interests at heart. Should I see a benefit, I may offer thought or behavioural exercises, psycho-education or a creative intervention to support your growing awareness and movement towards your chosen outcome.
I very much believe that what needs to be said, will be said in the session and therefore encourage you to choose what seems most important to talk about each week.
As we tend not to bring what is happy, what is easy to counselling, it is worth bearing in mind that the journey can be difficult and upsetting but it is worth persevering to grow in self-awareness, the starting place of change.
I offer face to face and video counselling.
If face to face is your preference we can meet in my counselling room in central Princes Risborough, Bucks. I access video counselling via the secure Zoom platform.
I am happy to have a short initial chat on the telephone, to answer any questions you may have.
At present I am offering a half price initial assessment session. During which I can find out more about you, assess risk, ascertain if I have the skills to support you, while you can ask any questions of me and the counselling I provide. Should we both feel satisfied we are a ‘good fit' we can progress to our next session.
My first session
During the initial session we will chat through the counselling agreement, privacy statement and a wellbeing questionnaire.
We will then explore some initial background questions that can give me a more holistic picture of you, and you can share what has brought you to counselling and what would be helpful for you.
The first session is a little different in that, as we chat I will make notes, with subsequent sessions a short factual record is made following the session.
