Personal Statement

I work using phone, email and online, in integrative way. What that means is that I will adjust the type of therapy (eg: person centred, psychodynamic or CBT) and its length (short term or long term) depending on what my clients feel would work best for their individual goals, and the pace they feel comfortable with. During the first session, I will conduct risk assessment to make sure that my client is safe and that the issues they wish to bring to therapy are appropriate for online counselling. I will explain how I work, and I will agree with clients how we will work together, how often the sessions will be and whether the client wishes to engage in brief or open-ended therapy. During the first session I would also establish what the client’s goals are, and what changes they would need to see to know they have achieved them.
