About me and my therapy practice
My initial consultation with a client generally lasts between 50 minutes and one hour and is offered at a nominal fee of £20. For those who have not received counselling or psychotherapy before, the initial meeting can seem daunting and it is normal to experience an element of anxiety or nerves before the first consultation. Our first meeting is an opportunity for us to gather a general sense of each other and of the presenting issue. An essential component of any successful counselling is the therapeutic relationship which develops between us; that is one of trust, confidentiality, genuineness and non-judgment, and it is important therefore that we feel we can work constructively together. The initial meeting is also an opportunity for the client to gather information as to what to expect and to ask any questions. You will not be asked to book any subsequent sessions or commit to any therapy following our initial meeting. You will leave the consultation with all necessary information and the onus is entirely upon you, the client, to make any further contact to commence therapy. I have been trained to work within a multi-modal approach, drawing on behavioural, psychoanalytical and person centred therapy. I am also able to draw on other techniques and models such as Transactional Analysis, Gestalt and REBT.
