I see people face to face and occasionally using zoom. I prefer to work face-to-face as we can develop a relationship more quickly and I feel more comfortable being in the room with people.
I always suggest an initial phone conversation prior to meeting to ensure that what I offer is what you are looking for and so that we can get a sense of each other, and what brings you to therapy.
I am always happy to meet with people for an initial introductory session to see if counselling or therapy might work for you and if you feel comfortable working with me.
All the research shows that good outcomes in therapy and counselling depend on the quality of the relationship between the two people. This may take a little longer to establish in a virtual context but it is very possible. An initial session is an opportunity to get a feel for each other, for using the technology, to get a sense of whether we can work together. If we both feel this is right we then agree to meet for either an identified number of sessions or with an open-ended contract.
We will meet for a 50 minute session once a week at the same time. We will talk about what has been happening to you, how your history has impacted on you, and were you feel stuck. People often tell me that simply hearing themselves talk, to an interested ‘witness’, thinking about the questions I ask, reflecting on what has been happening in a different ways immensely helpful.
I offer a sliding scale of fees reflecting income. All fees are payable by credit card or cash at the session or bank transfer when necessary.
