I offer a prompt initial appointment where we can discuss the issues that you would like to work on and how the counselling may help.
I firmly believe there is 'no one size fits all', so the initial appointment is an opportunity for us to discuss the goals that you would like to work towards, for you to ask questions and to get a sense of whether I am the right counsellor for you.
A question that is often asked is how many therapy sessions will I need? This will depend upon you as an individual, the issues you would like to work on and would be something we can discuss at your initial appointment.
My way of working is based on developing a good working relationship with you and providing you with a safe space where you can explore your issues and develop a greater understanding of yourself, working towards a solution that meets your needs.
I work under the Ethical guidelines laid out by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am fully insured and registered under current Data Protection laws.
