Some of the issues clients have previously brought to therapy are:
The way I work
I have experience of working with both adults and young people, in voluntary settings and my private practice.
What happens in a session?
During our first session I will explain and make an agreement with you about confidentiality, fees and anything else related to our working together, to clarify our arrangements.
I will combine aspects of different approaches or work from a single modality depending on what method best suits you. Each session lasts for 50 minutes, generally once weekly and I am able to offer short or long term work depending on your requirements.
Some clients need just a couple of appointments to resolve an issue, while others may wish to engage in longer term work. Whatever you decide we will work together towards regaining balance and control in your life.
In either case, we will regularly review our work together, to ensure we are progressing towards your goals.
What counselling is not
Counselling is not about telling you what to do or making decisions for you. It is about helping you to explore your options and supporting you in any decisions you make.
I will ask you a number of questions to enable me to understand the issues troubling you and together we will agree a plan for working together – if that is what you decide to do. Any notes taken are only used as guidance for on-going therapy and are stored within the Data Protection Act guidelines.
