I like to talk on the phone or answer emails so I can answer your questions and hear a bit about what has brought you to this stage. We can discuss any ideas you have about how you might best be helped and I can talk about the approaches I can offer. I can work online or in person. I work at the Matlock Therapy Centre which is in the centre of town with street parking outside or in a local pay and display car park. It is wheelchair accessible with quiet and pleasant private rooms. https://www.matlocktherapycentre.co.uk/therapists-derbyshire-matlock/ .The first appointment is where I start to listen and discuss what you would like to change and when we've agreed this I then offer a written contract. I like to be open about how we work together throughout the therapy and I'm keen to gain feedback and adapt so we work alongside each other and I work at my best for you.
Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.
