Psychotherapy and counselling sessions take place once or twice a week, at the same time and place. I endeavour to provide a safe, supportive space for us to explore your situation and concerns. In a confidential, non-judgemental environment you will be encouraged to express your thoughts and feelings. My approach is non-directive in order to allow you the freedom to go at your own pace and to go wherever you would like to or feel you need to go in a session. I will help you to think about the meaning and roots of your concerns and aim to help you develop a greater degree of understanding in the interests of healing, integration and growth.
I seek to provide a safe, supportive space for us to explore your situation and the meaning and causes of specific areas of concern or distress. I seek to help you develop a greater degree of understanding and sense of control over your own life in the interests of self-development.
When you first contact me you will be able to arrange an initial consultation which will provide us with time to explore your situation and concerns. It is an opportunity for us to think about the issues you want help with, your expectations of, and queries about, therapy and to look at ways in which it could help you. If we agree that psychotherapy is the way forward, we will then discuss some practicalities, such as: frequency, absences, duration, etc.
Any issue and feelings can be explored within psychotherapy and counselling; for example, depression, anxiety, loneliness, anger, abuse, relationship issues, bereavement, work issues or general dissatisfaction with your life.
