Clients come to me experiencing stress, depression, anxiety, high workloads, client demands, relationship problems, problems seeking support, perfectionism, critical thoughts, addiction, not being able to set boundaries, feeling stuck, low self-esteem, trauma, self harm and suicidal thoughts.
We will talk about whatever you wish to bring at your own pace and in your own time, the emphasis is on you and what you are experiencing.
I will provide an empathic ear, I will listen to you and we will begin to build a working relationship together that helps you think and understand yourself better.
My style of counselling is psychodynamic: this might involve exploring past history and patterns of relating, as I feel that our childhood experiences affect our current experiences, and expectations of relationships and situations in ways that we are not fully aware of.
In our first meeting we will discuss what has led you to seek counselling and agree a regular time to meet on a weekly basis if you'd like to work together.
Typically I would suggest ideally to have at least a minimum of six sessions so that you feel you are getting some benefit.
Although work is open-ended you are free to end counselling when you wish, ideally what I would ask for though is some notice so we can work towards the experience of a good ending for you together.
I work in a peaceful and private therapy room just a few minutes walk from London Bridge Station, charging £80 for a 50 minute session. Or alternatively I can offer therapy in central Tunbridge Wells at £50 for a 50 minute session.
