TERRIFYING, ISN'T IT?
Choosing a counsellor online... so why choose me?
Choosing the right counsellor is like online dating: you can read the profile, check out the photo, but you'll never really know until you meet face to face. And once you do, within a few minutes you know whether or not you've made the right choice.
It's the same with counselling. The relationship you develop with your therapist is central to the therapeutic process. And you'll know within a few minutes if you've made the right choice. And if you've made the wrong choice, why should you be charged for that?
I spent three years working for the NHS, both in short-term intervention, and with those suffering from "deep and enduring mental health issues". I have also been in private practice since 2006.
At the Atrium, my client base was the “worried well” suffering from a wide range of problems including depression, anxiety, phobias, family issues, stress, anger, low self-esteem, bereavement and loneliness. These clients came for 6 - 8 sessions
At the Taylor Centre, I saw clients struggling with issues of low-functioning depression, suicidal ideation, sexual abuse, anxiety and low self-esteem. They could come for up to a year if necessary.
This experience at both ends of the mental health spectrum has given me a unique advantage in helping clients from all walks of life.
