How do I work?
Entering therapy for the first time can be a frightening thought for some people but I am confident that I can provide an environment based on mutual trust and confidentiality. Initially, I would have a brief telephone conversation with you and if we can agree on a time we would arrange the first session. During the first few sessions I would conduct an assessment and we would probably agree on the approximate length and goals of our work together. As time goes by this can change. In long term work I would expect to see clients for at least 40 weeks a year. I do not charge for holidays and I would let you know well in advance when I go on breaks. My cancellation policy is 48 hours.
I am a Humanistic Counsellor and I believe that we are all born equal into different circumstances. I believe that we all have a capacity to change and grow as human beings. My modalities are Gestalt, Person Centred and Transactional Analysis (TA). However, most importantly I am a relational therapist and I am a firm believer that the relationship between the client and myself is paramount for the process of change.
