Life can be hard and does not alway go the way we would like ... you can use this space to get away from everything and talk to someone while feeling safe without judgement, and work towards where you would like to be.

 

This can be a place to process what has gone on and learn how the world is perceived uniquely by you and how this can influence your relationships and interactions.

How it works 

Sessions are 50 minutes. In the beginning we would use the first sessions to explore what the issue is for you and your experience of it while also developing the therapeutic relationship and making sure you feel comfortable. I believe in working together therefore I am transparent with my clients and will discuss every step with you. The way we choose to go with the work will also depend on whether you have had any sort of therapy before and if you found that approach working for you or not. Your plan depends on which way the issue presents itself, when it started and many other factors which we can work through together.
