How I Work
Each person is unique. As an Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor I offer a flexible and creative approach for everyone I work with. I draw upon various approaches such as psychodynamic, humanistic and body psychotherapy. The relationship between us will be a unique and important part of our work. I welcome feedback along the way, so together we can find out what is right for you. I work interactively, meaning that I engage with and respond to you and what you present, rather than taking the 'blank screen' approach.
Counselling is usually shorter term work, often focussing on a specific issue or agreed goal. Psychotherapy involves long-term or open-ended work, and may delve more deeply into your unconscious patterns and conflicts. Often goals can change over time and this is something we can discuss as we go along.
Our first session gives you an opportunity to discuss what has brought you to therapy and ask me any questions you may have. I will also ask you some questions to gain a sense of how we could work together. Ultimately it is for us to see if we are the right fit.
My fees start at £80 per 50 minute session. Sessions take place at the same time every week. I offer a free 20-minute call to briefly discuss the therapy and practicalities and see if we are a good fit. Also, the introductory session is at a reduced fee of £45.
