What I Offer

Psychotherapy is a gently unfolding process of discovery – a journey undertaken together. When you come to your psychotherapy sessions with me the information you share with me will be confidential. The sessions will take place in a comfortable, safe environment, without interruptions. We will meet regularly and usually at the same pre-arranged times and on the same day/s each week. I will take three breaks each year, of 1 to 4 weeks, with advance notice.

During your time in psychotherapy with me, you will be encouraged to share your thoughts, hopes, dreams, and experiences with me as they unfold for you during, and outside of, the psychotherapy sessions. Although I recognise that there are some thoughts, feelings and experiences that everyone prefers to keep private, you will be gently encouraged to speak as openly as you can about what matters to you.

I will share much less with you about myself since this is your time and it is important for us to understand you. However, there will be times, of course, when I do share something of my responses, my impressions, my feelings, or my experience, if I feel it will benefit you within the psychotherapy setting. This is not traditional psychoanalytic psychotherapy in which the therapist keeps a consistently ‘neutral’ expression and says very little indeed.  I seek to provide you with an experience of warm, engaged, mutual relationship in which changes can occur gently, at your own pace.
