Having experienced first hand the power of talking therapies I decided to change professions, from nursing to counselling. I am trained in an integrative approach which means that I have knowledge and experience of working in a variety of ways. I realise the importance of being able to fit therapy to suit the client rather than fitting the client to the therapy and my integrative training allows me to do this. I have experience of working with clients using the following modalities: Person Centred Counselling, Humanistic, CBT, Psychodynamic, Gestalt and Object Relations Therapy. My main persuasion is the Person Centred Approach. I see you the client as an expert in your own life and am interested to learn your motivations for coming to counselling. I aim to provide a safe and confidential space whereby together we can explore the reasons that have brought you to this point in your life.
I am able to work in a time limited way to address more specific issues, or I can offer open ended counselling if you are looking to work at a deeper level.
I appreciate that deciding to undertake counselling can feel like a frightening prospect, and finding the right counsellor with whom you can strike up a good rapport may seem quite daunting. As such, I invite you to start by having a brief telephone chat whereby we can arrange an appointment to meet if this feels right. I propose that this initial meeting be limited to 30 minutes, and is used as a time for us both to get a feeling for whether we could work therapeutically together. Following this initial consultation, I would suggest that we look at arranging 6 sessions, and review our work together at the end of this period with a view to continuing if that feels right
I am very aware that the success of therapy is largely down to the rapport between Client and Counsellor, and as such look forward to meeting you and building this.
