Online therapy and counselling

I work with a range of issues including bereavement and loss. This seems so apt during the Covid pandemic. It is unforgiving, affecting everything from our everyday existence to our normal way of life and freedoms. We are all in this together even if you are struggling - you are not alone.

I am fully committed to my counselling and reaching out to those people who need extra support.

My practice offers a helping hand in such challenging times and deals with what I call 'the together-alone' paradox. 

I offer online therapy using Zoom or Doxy.Me. They are the most encripted and safe platforms to use.  Session length is 50 minutes and I send a link which is easy to set up.  

 

What are the advantages of Online working? 

  • Some clients find less travelling time and no petrol or parking costs a real bonus.
  • There is also familiarity being seen in the comfort of your home especially useful if you are worried about leaving the house or anxious.
  • Rural living or mobility issues often limits choice but online offers greater choice.
  • Expats can also easily be seen across time zones with no difficulty.

 

Online working is a natural progress from face-to-face work. It is not for everyone especially if there is a risk of being overheard or not being in a safe place in the home.

 

 

About me

I work as an audiologist and school counsellor, the rest of my time is committed to my private clients.

My unique training means I have many transferable skills. I have developed a keen interest in Young People and issues around social media, body-image, gender and sexuality. I also spend alot of time with older people and only too aware of issues arising around relationships changing, families dynamics or feeling alone once more and becoming isolated.

 

How can counselling help?

 

Part of person centred counselling is around the organism and its ability to grow. Without the right conditions it will fail to thrive. Counselling offers the right conditions to adapt and grow.

My practice has always been about empathy and communication. Often its about the difficult unsaid stuff rather than what is on the surface. Sometimes its not what we say to people but how we feel about ourselves. This causes the tension, the stress, the anxiety. We try to control what ife throws our way but those unexpected curve-balls leave us reeling.  We become 'ungrounded', 'at sea' struggling to make sense of our feelings and emotions. There seems no words !! 

 

 I can provide you with a safe compassionate space to explore your issues, find strategies or alternatives, give you a sense of movement away from that place of feeling stuck, feeling lost or being alone. I will sit alongside you throughout this process without judegment.

 

What to expect in the first session?

 

To be met with a gentleness, a deep understanding from the beginning.  We can start at the beginning with your expectations and what exactly you want to achieve from therapy. Mine is a stepped approach.

Normally I suggest six sessions with a review in the middle and end session but I can offer open ended work as well as time-limited.

 

 

What experience do I have?

 

A general maturity working with people for many years. The right attributes to be a counsellor.

My commitment to counselling is immense and drives me to be there to help people.

 

Who do I want to work with?

 

Young People 18+, Adults and Elders.
