Your Counselling Journey

How therapy works...

Therapy helps by creating a safe, non judgemental space, where you can reflect on and process experiences, problems and life choices.  Therapy can help break negative patterns of behaviour and find resolution.

Everyone is unique in their experiences, as such, i  adopt an integrated approach to counselling to suit your individual needs. I work using EMDR (Eye movement desensitisation and reprogramming), Psycho-dynamic, Cognitive-behavioural, Humanistic and Mindfulness therapies.


The journey begins with contact

I understand that it can be difficult to ask for help and to trust someone with your inner thoughts and feelings. The first step is to call, text or email me and we will  talk briefly about what is making you seek therapy at this time. During this stage I will also discuss my professional fees and answer your questions about your therapy journey with me. Appointments can be face to face or Zoom

Next we will arrange an assessment appointment. This will be a 50 minute session in order to look at your history, your goals and address any concerns you may have. I will also talk to you about the therapy policies. EMDR assessments will last approx. 1h 30 mins.

Then an assessment appointment
Scheduling therapy time

After assessment we will arrange a regular time and day to meet. This is usually once a week for the duration of the therapy. 


All therapy sessions and documents will be treated as confidential. However, there are limits to confidentiality in cases where there is risk to self or to others, or mandated by a court of law.
