MY APPROACH

My practice is grounded within the Interpersonal Dialogue, incorporating Person-Centred and Rogerian styles with Psychodynamic models of psychotherapy. I strictly abide by the ethical guidelines set by BACP and COSCA, offering both long-term psychotherapy and short-term counselling contracts. My practice is non-directive, relational and insight-oriented as opposed to authoritative, solution-focused and goal-oriented. I aim to work in a facilitative manner, free of judgement, criticism, or advice. This is done with the intention of helping you trust yourself, and make choices which empower and enable you to live more authentically. Our work will take a holistic view of healing and strengthening, rather than a binary and myopic perspective, leaving no experience unlived, and no capability untested.

...helping you make choices

Sessions are 50 minutes long, and are typically held at the same day and time every week. According to your requirements, additional sessions can be arranged after due discussion. Our work begins with an initial consultation session where we get to know each other a little better: understanding your reasons for seeking counselling and assessing your needs, exploring your expectations from our sessions and how you believe therapy will help you, any questions you may have about my practice and the therapeutic process, and together assessing our overall fit. Should we choose to contract, we mutually decide on a certain number of sessions to start with. As our work progresses and our relationship develops, we can review, renegotiate, and re-contract based on your needs.

I also offer online sessions and e-therapy, through which you can access mental health services from the comfort of your home.
