As you take the first steps of trying to find a therapist with whom to speak, it may feel somewhat confusing and overwhelming. It is reassuring if a therapist is both experienced and fully qualified so that you can concentrate on your journey secure in the knowledge that you will be attending a professional, confidential service.
I offer a free initial conversation over the phone so that we can establish whether it would be useful to meet. You may have had therapy/counselling before or this maybe your first experience, you may feel unsure if this is for you. These are understandable questions at this unsettling stage.
About me and my therapy practice:I am a qualified Individual Psychotherapist with a range of qualifications to draw on so that I can be effective in the counselling/therapy that I offer. This may include considering repetitive or outdated patterns of thinking or behaviour that keep you stuck; working through childhood difficulties or focusing on the here and now experience of your life today. The quality of relationships or the dissatisfaction of working life may also be issues to work on. Lack of creativity or frustration may also need attention.
Our professional therapeutic relationship will develop to support this emotional work.
