How I Work...
My approach is an Integrative one which means I draw on different ways of working that are bespoke and specific to what is best for you.
To me everybody is unique, we all have our own experiences of life with all its traumas, conflicts, dilemmas, and aspirations. Life can often be difficult to talk about and can vary from day to day anxiety to more difficult situations. Therapy allows you to make sense of these experiences no matter their size, and speaking to someone trained to really listen can help you express those feelings in a private safe space.
My approach focuses on you by offering a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space/approach from which we can explore and help you develop understanding of your inner world. I will help you reflect on your experience with the aim of gaining some clarity on what may be distressing you.
The First Session
It can be daunting to start talking to someone who is a stranger about personal things that you may have never shared with anyone else. Everything we do will be taken at your pace. The most important thing for the start of therapy is for you to feel comfortable in saying as much or as little as you like.
In the first session we can talk and clarify the areas you want to cover and explore. You will be able to ask me any questions or discuss any concerns you may have.
The first session gives me a chance to get to know you a little, talk about your concerns and for you to decide if you would like us to work together.
We can arrange to meet in person, or online via VSee/Skype, so we can make your therapy suit your needs and lifestyle.
