Who am I?
A Counselling Therapist and member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy. My experience includes working with charities, and in private practice. With me you will find a highly professional, confidential, open, honest and yet non-judgemental style of therapy. I provide therapeutic counselling for a wide range of issues.
Whether it's; coping, aspects of your relationships, work, loss, moving forward or your well being. Maybe you're experiencing the symptoms of anxiety or panic, depression and low mood or are generally concerned about yourself. You are welcome to talk.
By starting Counselling you show a courage and strength of which at this moment you may be unaware. If you can access that enough to get through the therapy door you show the type of commitment therapy takes.
What will it involve?
From you ? ... a willingness to try and think out loud though this is difficult sometimes initially. Generally, I offer a listening ear to help you explore yourself, issues, perspectives, possibilities and options depending on your desired outcome.
As a strong therapeutic relationship develops over time, you may choose to work longer term. I can accommodate that. You may for example delve into who you are, your distant and more recent past and how you are with others with a view to greater awareness and positive change.
Some advise that during their therapy they find they have "taken a journey". Whilst this is unique to everyone, it is proven to offer a variety of benefits. For instance, the relief of expressing yourself in a way that affords freedom of speech and space to reflect, to looking at issues from different angles and levels. This can lead to greater self awareness, clarity and more choiceful living.
Step 1: E-mail or phone and I will respond.
Step 2: We agree a time to meet and to help you think about whether you might like to work together.
Thereafter, I extend a safe time and space with weekly appointments.These will be your time, to come as you are and to help make sense of whatever's going on.
