offer free telephone consultations. Our first session is likely
to be an assessment session. In this session we will work together
to compile as much information about your current problem as possible,
including relevant history, factors that contribute to your problem
and how this impacts on you and your behaviour.
You can expect me to write notes on what you are saying and to
collaborate with you, so that we can develop a mutual understanding
of your problem and how we can help you to manage it. At the end
of each session, we will negotiate a task for you to complete
between each session. This is aimed for you to put any learning
you have achieved about your difficulties into practice and it
speeds up your recovery from your problem.
I am friendly and approachable and I strive to create an informal
environment whilst we are working together. My aim as a therapist
is to give you the skills to become your own counsellor, so that
you will be able to manage your problems now and in the future.
I am happy to show you my certificates of qualification and training,
professional indemnity insurance and any other verification of
my ability that you require.
