I am a professional fully qualified psychotherapist holding a BA Honours Degree in Integrative-Relational Counselling.
How I work
My training enables me to draw on a range of therapies to best help you as an individual.
My approach to therapy is first and foremost based upon building a positive therapeutic relationship with you. I believe that when the foundation of the counselling relationship is based on trust, safety, and non-judgement you will be able to explore ways that will help to bring about change and life choices that feel right
How therapy can help
All of us at some stage in life can feel confused, anxious, isolated, stressed or unable to cope, not knowing how to move forward.
At these times, within a safe and confidential space, talking to someone who is understanding, really listens and offers objective and empathic support means you can begin to explore ways of achieving self-awareness and direction for positive change.
My experience from both private practise and working with GPs enables me to offer support in many areas.
I offer individual face-to-face both long and short-term therapy.
Sessions generally last 50 minutes but can be tailored to client’s needs.
What happens in the first session?
In our first session we can discuss what has brought you to therapy and look at what your expectations are and what you want to achieve.
You are under no obligation to continue with therapy after the first session. It is a personal decision and I would encourage you to take as much time as you need to decide if you want to continue.
How many sessions will I need?
This is very individual and can be reviewed as therapy progresses. Generally the number of sessions will depend on your needs and goals. Some clients come into therapy with specific issues, while others seek support with a more general sense of unease or dissatisfaction.
Should you choose to move forward with a therapeutic relationship we can discuss further appointments and a suitable framework.
Code of practise
I am a professional member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapy (BACP) adhering to its “ethical framework for good practise in counselling and psychotherapy” and therefore governed by the professional conduct procedure outlined in the BACP.
I carry full professional liability insurance.
