Dr Claire Stubbs
I believe in the importance of having a safe and confidential space to talk through your worries or concerns and make sense of who you are in the world. Therapy can offer you this space and support you to make those links between the here and now and the past in a safe and compassionate space.
We will spend the first session together exploring your goals for therapy and why you have chosen to come into therapy at this particular time in your life and any expectations that you have from the therapy process. There will be a review of the therapy after six sessions to ensure that you are getting from it what you need, and if there is anything that you would like to change. The therapy will very much be influenced by your involvement and engagement in the process as much as the relationship between us.
