My approach is integrative which combines psychodynamic and person centred counselling. Psychodynamic therapy can help explore and understand how these difficult feelings have been shaped by past experiences and relationships. Thoughts and behaviours can be looked at using a person centred approach to increase self awareness and confidence by looking at how we communicate with others.
I offer a warm, non-judgemental and confidential environment from my counselling room, which is in a secluded location between Chorleywood and Sarratt. My aim is to provide a respectful and supportive setting to explore these difficult areas. I can work face to face, online via Zoom or over the telephone if preferred.
The initial 30 minute consultation is free and can be either face to face, online or over the telephone. This time is used to establish if we are able to work together and whether counselling feels right for you. During an initial assessment session, we can explore the reasons you have decided to seek support at this time. We can look at aims and expectations and agree the focus of our sessions together.
If you feel we may be able to work together, please contact me either by email or telephone. I am able to work short term or long term depending on your needs.
