Working with you
I offer and work in the following ways:
• Individual long-term counselling
• Individual short-term counselling (up to 12 weeks)
• Group psychotherapy
• Zoom sessions
What is individual therapy?
Individual psychotherapy is one-on-one work, aimed at improving your wellbeing. Together we will address the issues you find difficult to face alone. The purpose of the first session is to gain an understanding of why you have come to therapy, and what you are hoping to achieve. It gives you the opportunity to decide if I am best placed to help you. The session lasts 50 minutes, and there is no obligation to return for a second session. If you wish to continue, we will agree a suitable way of working going forward.
What is group therapy?
Group psychotherapy provides a sense of common experience that can empower change, develop self-awareness, build confidence and reduce shame. By seeing how other people make positive change, you can discover a range of strategies for facing your own concerns. Typically, groups meet for 1.5 hours once a week and range between six to ten people in size. I hold the group and maintain safe boundaries.
What is online therapy?
Online therapy allows you to attend your session from your own home or business venue. We will connect online via Zoom. You will require access to a smartphone, laptop, PC or tablet with a camera, and internet connection. Sessions will last 50 minutes.
