Services and treatments
My treatment focus is to ensure that each individual, family or child is matched with the most experienced therapist. Sessions can be agreed upon depending on the clients need and out of hours appointments can be made on evenings and weekends to ensure all clients an opportunity to attend the sessions that they require. The number and frequency of sessions can be increased or decreased as therapy moves forward depending on individual needs. I work in a client-led, person-centred way which ensures clients are in control of any issues they wish to deal with in therapy.

This is Counselling that takes place during a 1hr session. The session includes the counsellor and the client. The client can be a adult, child or adolescent.
Family therapy can include the whole immediate family or just specific members of your family. All members will be sat with the counsellor who will ensure that each and every family member in attendance is listened to and feels that they are as important as the other family members.
Children and Adolescent Counselling
Children and adolescent counselling takes place with one client and the counsellor having the session together. The counsellors responsibilities lie with the client. Parents can sometimes feel that they should be told of issues being raised by their children in therapy. This is not what an ethical counsellor will do unless there are disclosures made that need to be discussed to ensure the protection of the child or adolescent. The confidentiality agreement is always between the counsellor and the client, not the parents.
Couples therapy is as you might expect. The couple who are seeking therapy will both sit with the counsellor to discuss the issues that have brought them to the sessions. The counsellor will ensure that each individual is given the time to disclose their issues. It ensures that they are discussed in an environment which enables each individual to hear their partner without blame and recriminations.
