Delma Walsh M.A. UKCP
I work with Adults and Adolescents, I work both long and short term, depending on the needs of each individual client.
I work face to face with individuals who are struggling with a variety of emotional, relational and identity difficulties. Sessions can be on a short term or longer-term basis, depending on the wishes and needs of each client. Sessions are 50 minutes long and take place weekly.
People often seek a counsellor when they are in crisis. At times we can all feel 'stuck', as if there are no options left anymore. Others come to therapy when they are not so much in crisis, but are perhaps beginning to notice negative patterns in their relationships, behaviour, feelings or thinking that they feel ready to explore. At times like this the talking therapies can be very helpful.
If you are finding life a struggle for any number of reasons, from a major life change to a loss or separation, or an issue you cannot seem to resolve, you will find psychotherapy a very useful tool in removing the blocks preventing you from fulfilling your potential.
Using an integrative approach in my practice means that I do not approach you, or the work we do together, from one fixed theoretical perspective, but integrating varied theories as appropriate for each individual. Integrative also refers to the process of taking the disowned, unaware or unresolved aspects of the personality and working towards making them a cohesive part of the self.
The first session allows us to explore what the presenting problem may be and generally we will know then if we can work well together.
