In the private and confidential space of counseling session, we can explore and identify the behavior, thoughts, attitudes, circumstances and related feelings that cause emotional distress and make your life difficult.
Through this process you can learn effective ways to deal with your problems by building upon your own unique personal strengths. I will encourage your personal growth and development in a way that matches your interests and will best support your overall well-being.
Research has proven that the effectiveness of talking therapies mostly depends on the quality of the relationship between therapist and client. It is not necessarily the theoretical approach, age, gender or experience of the therapist that is most significant. There are no meaningful differences between counselling and psychotherapy.
It is often a daunting task and takes courage to pick up the telephone and make the first appointment. A first session is to allow the client to meet me as a therapist, to ask questions, and to discuss your needs and expectations and any anxieties about beginning. Choosing a therapist is often intuitive and I would advise any client to listen to their “ feelings” after a first session to decide whether to begin working with me. You may find a few sessions are all that you need, or you may wish or feel you need open-ended longer term work.
The sessions are 60 minutes in length, although occasionally if requested I will see clients for longer sessions. My counselling is absolutely confidential and and my approach is non-judgmental and supportive regardless of clients race, religion, sexual orientation, nationality or presenting behavior.
