Qualified as an integrative counsellor (Greenwich University, 2016), my training enables me to incorporate a number of approaches in to my practice. Sometimes, initially, it can help to simply talk to someone about what you are going through. I provide a safe environment for you to acknowledge how you really feel and be supported in it.
I have particular experience in helping clients understand their depression, anxiety and relationship problems enabling you to find meaning amidst the melancholy and re-frame your experience as a powerful catalyst for healing, growth and personal development. My approach allows for an earnest exploration of existential questions about life and relationships. I do not advise clients as to the best way forward; instead providing a safe space for personal reflection enabling you to find your own best way forward.
I have worked for a broad range of counselling organisations, counselling clients of all ages with a range of presenting issues. I have also worked as a support group facilitator and a specialist mentor.
Therapy is an unfolding process of exploring oneself in the context of a strong working relationship. An initial phone call (07977248409) or e-mail exchange (email@example.com) will allow you to tell me why you are considering counselling and ask me questions.
Should we then meet for an assessment the session will include the following:
- Explanation of confidentiality and fees.
- I will ask about any previous counselling you may have had and whether you found it helpful or not and why.
- I will share some information about the way that I work and the counselling process.
- Opportunity for you to ask further questions.
- Conversation about what you are going through and what you would like to change.
- At the end of the session we can reflect on how you found it and whether you think future sessions might be useful for you.
- I charge for the first session – there is absolutely no obligation to continue therapy with me and you do not have to decide there and then.
I am a member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) and adhere to their ethical framework. I completed my training at Greenwich University.
