I am a fully trained and accredited psychotherapist (UKCP) and counsellor . I have worked for over eighteen years in private practice and for twelve years with the NHS.
I work with individuals, young people and couples and offer clinical supervision for trainees and experienced practitioners.
The initial assessment for counselling and psychotherapy
In the first session it is usual to discuss your concerns and relevant history.
The session is an opportunity for you to tell me what has brought you to therapy at this time and what your hopes and expectations are.
At the end of the session I will share my initial understanding of your problem and explain
my therapeutic approach. This is also an opportunity for you to raise any concerns or questions you may have..
There is a fee for the initial consultation but no obligations as we need to mutually agree that what I offer is appropriate for you. If we do agree to work together, a regular appointment time can then be arranged.
The main focus in couple counselling is helping both partners to communicate constructively and to begin to develop a deeper understanding of each other.
I will help you both to explore the problems you have within the relationship and look
at more constructive ways of dealing with the difficulties and conflicts.
In this safe and supportive environment it often becomes easier for you both to express
to each other what has previously been hard to say.
The outcome can often be a more conscious relationship where both partners are more aware of the dynamics between them and have learnt more effective communication skills.
