ABOUT A SESSION
First sessions are free. Check my avalability and at a time that suits you.
Sessions normally last one hour, 90 minutes or 2 hours. I work from my private consulting room in Hampton in the London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames, either in person or by video (FaceTime, Zoom & Skype).
I work daytimes, evenings, & weekends . My earliest session is at 8am, & my last at 8.30pm. I can see you once a week, or you may prefer to book sessions ad-hoc. You don't need to pay in advance or block-book.
Your first free session is not just information-gathering - we discuss the issues.
I believe in fostering a warm relationship with clients to help us examine complex life issues together. I view therapy as a collaborative process.
ABOUT RELATIONSHIP COUNSELLING
Relationship counselling works! 80% of respondents to a Relate survey said counselling had significantly improved their relationship.
Relationship counselling is for both couples and individuals, whether currently in relationships or not. I welcome clients of all backgrounds, sexualities, and types of relationship.
Relationship Counselling is a specialist form of therapy, so it is best to work with someone who has training in this specific area. I am trained in psychodynamic, systemic, Transactional Analysis, & CBT models
i am always happy to discuss the approaches I use, and suggest reading you might find helpful. Sharing concepts and models can help the process.
