We all struggle from time to time and there are many reasons to seek help from a counsellor. It can be long term problems that have been there all your life, a current crisis or maybe even a feeling that you want to change something but you're not sure what. Whatever you want to bring to sessions will be handled in a confidential, non-judgemental way and I aim to provide a safe and calm space in which you can explore your feelings and find a way forward.
I can work with a range of issues including depression, anxiety and self-esteem. I was a care and support worker for 5 years, working with elderly people and disabled people. I can use insights gained working in the care profession to help you talk through any issues involving care and support, including end of life. I am mobile, so if mobility is a problem for you and you are not able to come to me, I can come to you. I am also able to offer Skype, FaceTime or 'phone sessions.
Following initial contact from you, we will arrange an assessment which will take about 30 minutes and is free of charge. We can do this face-to-face in my office, over the telephone, or via Skype or FaceTime. This will give me an idea of what you need help with, and allow you to see if I am the right counsellor for you.
Following this, the first session will be spent exploring your issue in more detail to develop an understanding of how it started and the impact it has had, or is still having, on your life.
You can then decide how long you would like to continue sessions. Sessions would usually be in blocks of six, however, the length of therapy is not set in stone. For example, if we contract for twelve sessions but then you find eight is enough, we can end sooner. Similarly, if we contract for twelve sessions and you think that sixteen may be more appropriate, I can accommodate that too.
I am currently unable to offer open ended counselling as I am relocating to Devon at the end of February 2019.
I trained as an humanistic integrative counsellor, an approach which recognises that there are significant connections between all approaches to counselling. It accepts that different clients have different needs and believes that no single method is sufficient. The approaches that I draw on are the Person-centred approach, Gestalt and Transactional Analysis, and I am also trained in CBT.
I am qualified to work with adults, children and adolescents.
I work from my quiet office in the Purewell Therapy Centre, Purewell, Christchurch.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I work to their guidelines and code of ethics.
