I welcome people who wish to come alone to therapy. There are times when family and friends are not an option for resolving problems. It might be helpful to know that early on in the work it is not uncommon for clients to express that on top of their worrying dilemmas they also feel like a failure for needing to access therapy. Yet, good sense and research evidence tells us that facing our anxieties in a constructive conversation with a professionally trained practitioner is very often a positive force for emotional or practical change, whatever the dilemma or starting point.
I strive to offer a flexible approach. Sometimes a few sessions might be needed or clients will suit a longer-term process. An initial session will help kick-start the work and give a clearer picture of what needs doing and how to go about it. My approach remains integrative (see About Me section), whether I see couples or individuals.
