I offer a warm and friendly space to allow clients to explore the difficulties they are experiencing. My approach is integrative humanistic - the fundamental belief being that the strength of the client/ counsellor relationship is key to the success of therapy. I believe that you are the expert on you, and that together, we can work through the obstacles and challenges that you are facing by working towards an increased and deeper understanding of yourself and how you relate to others.

It's a big step to decide to embark on counselling and you may well be feeling anxious and nervous about how you will find the experience.
If you decide to contact me about counselling, we'll start by having a brief chat about your goals and expectations over the phone or email - whichever you prefer. We'll then arrange a mutually convenient time to meet up for an initial session so that we can get a feel as to whether we can work together. It's totally your choice whether to take it further or not from there. You will be encouraged to meet with other counsellors if you feel you would like to - the relationship is so important to the counselling process that you need to feel you have the potential, over time, to be able to build a trusting and genuine relationship with whoever you choose to work with.
Sessions will usually be at the same time each week (or you may choose to have them bi-weekly) - although this can be flexible depending on your availability.
Sessions will focus on what you decide to bring each week. I will work with you to explore your issues in increasing depth and may gently probe or challenge you in order to do this. I may also offer observations based on what and how you share information which may offer insights into your self awareness and your relationships with others.
The number of sessions you choose to have depends on you! Usually, clients have a minimum of 6 sessions - but some have benefitted from fewer, whilst others continue over much longer periods.
Good luck with your journey - however you proceed. I very much doubt you'll ever regret investing in this enlightening area of self discovery.
