I am a qualified therapist trained in Psychodynamic Counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and am a Registered Member of BACP. If you are going through a hard time suffering from anxiety, depression, relationship issues, or even if you are not sure yet, I am here to listen and help.
How can counselling help me?
Counselling has proved to be effective in improving lives of those experiencing social anxiety, bereavement, family issues, feeling sad or empty, low self-esteem, abuse and work or study stress.
I am compassionate and emphatic, dynamic and thoughtful, and I offer a space where you can be truly listened for who you really are and be understood in the context of your environment and past in a non-judgemental, warm way.
I usually allow the two initial sessions to think together whether an explorative approach, where you can also reflect on the past (Psychodynamic) or a more active one, where both will engage with your present (CBT), suits better your needs and practicalities of life.
What to expect in your first session?
During the first session we will look at your reasons for coming to counselling together with your hopes and goals for therapy. This is also a good opportunity to get to know each other and for you to reflect on whether you wish to work with me.
Choosing your therapist is a very important step, whatever the therapy our relationship is deemed to be the predictor of a good outcome from therapy. I will always allow some time to reflect whether you feel comfortable enough to work together.
