Ali Abrahams MA Counselling & Psychotherapy, Reg. MBACP
There may be times in our lives where we find ourselves experiencing difficulty. Perhaps a life event has occurred that you are struggling to move through, or you are aware of unhelpful patterns of relating in your close relationships. Perhaps past experiences are hampering your present and making it difficult for you to move into your future with confidence and hope. You may simply feel stuck and wish to grow in your understanding of yourself.
As an Integrative Therapist, I draw from a range of models so that I can adapt my work to meet your particular needs. I seek to offer a warm, compassionate and non-judgemental relationship to help you feel safe enough to embark on the courageous journey of therapy.
I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor/Psychotherapist and have worked with clients with a range of issues since January 2004. I am happy to offer either short or long term therapy depending on your needs.
Since research shows that it is the quality of the therapist/client relationship that achieves a successful outcome to therapy, I work to build a warm, safe, supportive, valuing and respectful relationship where we can explore together your difficulties and seek to bring freedom and enhance your life. To this effect, I see therapy as a collaborative process, working together to achieve your goals. I see clients in a comfortable room in my home.
The First Session
The first session is an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have concerning the counselling/psychotherapy process and for me to understand what is concerning you. It is also a chance for you to decide if I am the right therapist for you at this time. You are under no obligation to continue after this session, should you choose not to.
Alternatively, you may ask any questions on the phone before setting an appointment.
