Why are you here?
The reasons for seeking counselling or Psychotherapy can often be clear but sometimes one might not be sure how therapy can help. It is not unusual to seek help for psychological pain but also to resist this. It can be a painful process to begin to face things in ourselves that we know are troublesome so we use other avenues to try to avoid or manage. Perhaps you are here because these other avenues are less helpful and not working as well as they used to and you would like to try something different. With this in mind the need for a safe, reliable place to try and give meaning to these dilemmas is necessary.
I have created a safe and confidential environment that can lay the foundations to explore some of the problems that you might be experiencing. I put high value on the therapeutic relationship and connection in order to create possibilities for meaning and where necessary change.
The initial consultation involves us meeting online or in person for an hour to explore what has led you to seek help at this point in your life and to see whether you feel comfortable in working with me. If you do, we can agree either open ended or time-limited work together. We would then agree to a day and time that is convenient for you and one that we could regularly adhere to. The ongoing sessions are for 50 minutes and can be weekly or twice weekly.
If you would like to arrange an initial consultation to discuss what is needed please call or email me. I always welcome enquiries and look forward to hearing from you.
