The thought of starting therapy can bring up lots of feelings. For some it is exciting, for others it can feel stressful or worrying. Either way knowing what to expect can be reassuring for many.
In the initial session we will explore your goals for therapy and what has brought you along, and what you would like to change. We will also talk about confidentiality and come up with our own contract, based on our expectations of therapy. The focus of your therapy is decided by you and in this way it is client-centred.
Psychotherapy literally means to 'walk alongside' and my goal is to be with you as we explore topics and relationships that are important for you, even if these are difficult. This could exploring uncomfortable emotions, such as include anxiety, pain, depression, hopelessness, which I am trained to work with.
My aim in therapy is bring about better understanding and to be with you as you change in a way, and at a pace, that is right for you. Therapy will equip you with the insight and the tools to make the changes you want to in your life.
Sessions last 50 minutes and for most clients weekly sessions are recommended. These will take place online at a time that is convenient for you.
Online sessions take place from the safety of your home. Many clients find this beneficial as it is convenient and it just requires an internet connection and access to a phone or computer. There is growing evidence of the benefits of online therapy, even when compared to more traditional face-to-face therapy.
Sessions cost £65.
It is my belief that therapy should be accessible for all and so a limited number of concessionary slots are available. Please let me know if you feel this applies to you.
Confidentiality is one of the cornerstones of ethical therapy and is absolutely central to my approach. As a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I have a contractual commitment to work confidentially and within ethical guidelines with all clients.
