About me

The Way I Work

As an intersubjective counsellor, I believe the key to successful counselling is a co-creation of the therapeutic relationship between counsellor and client. I work relationally.

Our work together will progress through three stages:

Initial Stage: This involves building the counselling relationship through discussing the following issues:

  • An assessment of your reasons for coming to counselling and what you would like to gain from it
  • An introduction to what the counselling relationship would entail
  • Discussion and agreement about how we could work together

Your Counselling Journey: Therapy sessions are scheduled according to your needs in my private counselling room, which offers a quiet, comfortable and confidential environment, where we can work together in a way that you feel understood and respected.

Our ongoing discussions will continue to deepen our counselling relationship. We will summarise at the end of each session to ensure that your counselling requirements are being met.

Final Stage: As counselling progresses we will agree to draw the sessions to a satisfactory close and discuss a series of counselling tools that may help you in the future.
