It can be overwhelming to consider the possibility of counselling and psychotherapy. We often like to think that we should be able to manage our emotional and psychological life by ourselves. I feel it is important to realize that to consider starting therapy is a sign of health; even though we might be feeling very unwell. There is a part in all of us that can be strong enough to voice a need for a help to become who we can truly be.
Psychological support can help you in several situations:
Anxiety Stress Panic attacks Loss
Chronic or severe physical illness Relationship difficulties Bullying Mourning Low self esteem Depression Professional difficulties Family Problems Emotional Well being Meaning Abuse and violence
Difficulties in adapting to a new reality
I offer short term counselling and long term psychotherapy.
The sessions are made in person, by phone or online.
Telephone and online support is also offered to people who are experiencing anxiety and struggling to cope with life in this pandemic moment. The focus may be on helping the person to identify healthy coping skills and / or to develop more appropriate strategies to manage stressful situations during this period.
The next steps
Before embarking on regular therapy sessions, I make an initial consultation.
All sessions held are confidential.
This first consultation is a conversation to answer any of your questions and to think about how we can work together. We talk about how I work, what you want from therapy and consider whether we should move forward with the process.
It is important that the customer feels safe, respected and validated in the needs that have been presented.
After the first consultation, subsequent therapy sessions are organized, usually at the same time and day of the week.
If you are dealing with an illness that limits your life and you have difficulty leaving home, I can offer you sessions in your own home.
In the case of families dealing with a serious illness, the sessions with family participation last 90 minutes.
Initial consultation (£50)
Individual counseling / psychotherapy sessions (£75)
Support and family orientation sessions (£100)
I offer concessionary rates.
A 48 hour cancellation policy apply. However, whenever possible, I am able to offer a different fit.
I am fully qualified, registered and insured to practice psychotherapy in the UK. I am a British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy registered member (MBACP), a British Psychological Society member (MBPsS).
I look forward to hearing from you.
