During our initial consultation we will discuss the reasons you are seeking help and you will have the chance to ask any questions about what happens in therapy and express any worries or concerns you may have. This first meeting also gives us the opportunity to think about working together, we will also go through the frequency and length of our time together.
Sometimes it is hard to manage the feelings that you have and talking things through with a therapist can be truly liberating. Sometimes admitting that you are finding things too much gives you what you need to seek help and start to address what is bothering you.
I work as an integrative counsellor which means I draw on different theories and techniques to inform my practise. I have a special interest in relationships and young people therapy and have worked with Relate for several years. I qualified with an MA in Family and Relationship Therapy and have also completed several Continuous Professional Development courses including Domestic Violence, Young People Counselling , Couples and Affairs.
I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and abide by their code of ethics and good practise. In this way the relationship and communication between myself and my clients always remains private and confidential.
Counselling can offer you confidential, professional help rooted in our experience and training. We can provide you with a safe, confidential space in which to talk about and explore the issues which are troubling you.
If it is hard for you to get to an office then give me a ring and let's talk about web or telephone counselling (web counselling is offered via Skype).
