I'm Here to Listen
Most of my work is long term and open-ended, which means that therapy will progress for as long as we both feel it is necessary to you. From my experience, it takes time and willingness to get to the core of the issues. Along the way, we start finding solutions and ways of dealing with the situations that matter to you and that are affecting your daily life. Therapy is a process, leading to real changes and deeper transformations.
Please contact me via email. We will have a brief exchange and then schedule our first session.
I suggest an initial commitment of at least 8 sessions. Real changes require deep and meaningful work.
However, sometimes we go through some crisis or struggle to deal with specific difficult events, when we need immediate help and support, for a shorter period of time. Please reach out to me and we can discuss your needs and decide on the best path for you.
The sessions are weekly and at regular times. You will have a slot that is only yours: same day, same time, every week. If your needs are different, please let me know and I will try to arrange sessions that are suitable to both of us.
It's important that therapy is an individual choice and commitment. The work can only be done if you truly want to do it. And it will be worth it.
Confidentiality: Our work is absolutely confidential. I follow the 'BACP Ethical Framework' (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and everything discussed in therapy is private and confidential.
One-off sessions & longer sessions (90 minutes): Sometimes you feel you need a boost, someone to talk to and to reset your mind and direction. I offer longer sessions as a one-off session. Or, alongside the regular therapy, you might want an extra long session to help you in critical moments, or when you need extra support to resolve specific issues. Please enquire.
