Therapy approach
  • Session Format​​

I provide face-to-face, telephone, and online sessions. Please note that I am currently providing ONLY telephone or online sessions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I provide short, medium, and long-term therapy depending on your needs. 

  • Client Group 

I provide individual therapy for clients who are over 18. Please note that I do not offer couple and family therapy. I accept client both within and outside of the United Kingdom. 

  • Therapy Approach

I work within an integrative framework, using the following modalities:​

  • Psychodynamic therapy

  • Existential Therapy 

  • Compassion Focused Therapy

  • Play Therapy

  • Mindfulness 

 

I believe that an approach is not the answer to your issues but a tool to maximise the therapeutic space. I am happy to explore and discuss with you at our initial consultation what might be the right approaches for your needs.

It may be the first time for you to access private therapy. Here are some steps on how to start your therapy:

  

  • Book your first appointment

You can use this form to contact me. You can also call, text, or email me​. If you have any question, you are welcome to call me for a quick chat before booking your first appointment. Once you are booked in for your initial consultation, you will be instructed to complete the fee for your session. 

  • Attend your initial consultation

Our first meeting is called an initial consultation. This session is for both of us to get a little bit more sense of each other. We will cover the following points:​

  • Therapeutic contract

  • Session frequency

  • What brought you to therapy

  • What we can work together on

  • How we can work together

  • Book your regular sessions 

If both of us agree to work together, we book you in for regular sessions.

Safe Space

To ensure a safe space for your therapy, I always start the first session with talking about some rules in therapy, which is called Therapeutic Contract. It is a mutual agreement ensuring that the therapy is conducted in a confidential, ethical, and safe space. I adhere to the best standards regarding: 

  • Confidentiality

All sessions are confidential, and it is a safe space to talk    about anything you want. Confidentiality will only be breached when there is a concern for your safety and for others' as well as for child safeguarding.

  • Ethical Framework

All sessions are conducted within the Ethical Framework of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

 

We will explain this further and discuss other principles at your initial consultation.
