Counselling . counselling

Adult Counselling

My counselling approach is integrative and I use a combination of interventions from Person Centred Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Transactional Analysis, Emotional Literacy Principles, CBT and Solution Focused Therapy.


What happens at an assessment appointment?

Our first meeting is an opportunity for both of us to get to know each other and ask questions. We will discuss confidentiality of sessions and documents and how we should deal with an unexpected meeting in public to preserve client/counsellor confidentiality.

You will have the opportunity to share your personal circumstances, identify and prioritise key issues to work on. We will agree the frequency of your appointments, regular reviews and overall duration of time in counselling.

You will receive a copy of our counselling agreement which you can take away with you and read at your own leisure. Should you decide to enter into ongoing work I will ask you to sign it to say that you understand and agree with its content.

Child & Adolescent Counselling

I work in age appropriate and creative ways that suit each individual, this could include: drawing, modelling clay, Russian dolls, buttons, writing poems or songs and when preferred I also use suitable talking interventions when required.


What happens at an assessment appointment?

At a child or young person's first appointment I invite parents to attend for under 16's, so they can ask questions and I have the opportunity to share information regarding confidentiality, the frequency of appointments, regular reviews and overall time in counselling.

The young person will have the opportunity to share their personal circumstances, identify and prioritise key issues to work on.

I will issue a copy of our counselling agreement which you can take away with you and read at your own leisure. Should you decide to enter into ongoing work I will ask you to sign it to say that you understand and agree with its content.
