My focus and the ways I work
My goal is to support you and help you work through whatever problems you are facing to reduce or eliminate your distress.
As a Therapeutic Counsellor, I work without prejudice or judgement and at the pace that best suits you. In therapy, I work in partnership with you, guided by you to explore the past, present and future.
The therapy I provide focuses on helping you better understand the causes of your troubles, to support you and, if you want, trying to help you find solutions that work for you. If it is solutions to specific problems that you want to explore, we can work together in a solution-focused way.
In the sessions, I prefer a light, conversational approach to help you feel at ease and foster confidence as you work on whatever issues are important to you.
I sincerely believe there is no issue too big or too small for therapy.
By Video and Phone
Since the beginning of 2020, the profession has had to move online to keep supporting our clients. However, although video and phone counselling is equally as effective as in-person counselling, it requires therapists to be trained and experienced in delivering therapy in this way.
I have specialist training and am experienced in delivering this form of counselling and have been doing so for years before the pandemic. Indeed, some of my clients prefer to work this way, as it suits their needs and lifestyle. For example, phone or video counselling can be helpful for busy people or those who travel a lot, where getting to the counselling session can be a problem. It can be beneficial for people where mobility is an issue or where difficulties with being in public or travelling is itself the focus of therapy.
