What to expect from me
When you first make contact we will arrange a free 20 min session , the aim of which will be for us to think together about your needs and decide whether therapy may be helpful for you. This session gives you some time to tell me your story. I believe that is important to find the right therapist for you as this can make a substantial difference to the outcome of therapy.
There is no obligation to continue after the initial session and you can go away and think about it or you can advise me you do not want to proceed. If you do decide to proceed we can arrange the next appointment or series of appointments either at the same time and day each week or fortnight or a more flexible arrangement that would suit your work and lifestyle.
Sessions last for 50 minutes and I offer day and evening appointments.
You can usually expect some change within around six sessions.
The initial session is online via Zoom or by phone and we will also discuss if further sessions will be online or in person. I offer both online and in person sessions.
I am an Accredited member of BACP and a Registered member of UKCP. I am also a professional member of ACTO (Association for counselling and therapy online).
My role is to help you understand how you relate to others by facilitating self-exploration and helping you recognize unhelpful patters in your life. We will have regular reviews as we work together to ensure we stay on track and that the sessions are meeting your needs.
Therapy is a unique relationship, and you may reveal things about which you’ve spoken to few, if any, other people. All your communication with me — whether in person, or by telephone or email — will remain confidential.
