About Counselling & Psychotherapy

Whilst there is no one-size-fits-all approach to therapy, and everyone's experience of it is different, there are particular aspects to consider when choosing a therapist. Primarily, it is important to make sure any practitioner is qualified and experienced. Perhaps as importantly, it is also important to see if a therapist feels like they may be a 'good fit'.

You may be looking for something focussed and goal-oriented, or exploratory and focused on your past experiences, or both, Whatever reasons you are seeking therapy, it is important to choose the right person who will be respectful, transparent, honest and professional. My training was in the field of Counselling Psychology, which has a humanistic value base at its core and does not assume a superiority of one way of thinking, feeling or knowing. This means that I adopt an open-minded stance, and I do not wish to put you in a box.

Therapy is a step to take, but it should be a welcoming, friendly space where you can go at your own pace. Ultimately, the sessions aim to encourage your self-esteem, autonomy and choices, making your experiences less restricted by feelings; empowering you to think openly about what is happening and to work out how to move forward.
