As a Pluralistic Counsellor, I believe that there is not a one size fits all approach to therapy. Pluralism offers a menu of helping techniques with the therapeutic relationship being at the heart of the healing process.
In our sessions together, we will communicate and engage in the process of collaborative discussion and we will explore whatever concerns that have brought you to see me.
I will help you to gain insight and process your concerns in way that you feel comfortable, using a variety of techniques, for example if you like practical activities then we may work on CBT exercises that can help change unhelpful thinking or build self-esteem. Person-centred therapy helps to create a space where you can share your story; the power of being heard is extremely healing.
As a client what should I expect? I suggest an initial 15-minute consultation on the phone. If you feel that we are a good match and that we could work together to improve your situation, then we would arrange a first session either in person or virtually. The cost would be £40 per session with each session lasting 50 minutes. I also offer some limited concession spaces therefore please do not hesitate to ask. At the beginning of the session we would discuss your ideas about therapy and your desired outcome from our meetings. At the end of the first session, we would discuss how the session was for you and if/when you would like to come for another session. I offer both short-term and long-term therapy; reviewing progress every 6 sessions.
I have experience providing support around:
I will support you to expand on and develop your self-awareness, understand unhelpful patterns, and make sense of your life experiences. I will help you identify different ways of responding to difficulties in a way that aligns with your values, supports and nurtures your individual growth and your relationships.
I support you both to navigate through your experiences, gaining a deeper insight into your relationship and developing self-awareness.
I support families, colleagues and peers to engage in meaningful dialogue in a safe & neutral space.
Individual counselling £40 per session.
Couples counselling £50 per session.
Mediation is priced on request.
Please ask about concession prices if needed.
