Therapy when you need it.
Hello, I’m Alan and I’m a trained and registered therapist. I work with a variety of people like you from all walks of life, age, gender, profession and nationality. The type of therapy I use allows me to help you to look a little deeper at the issues you are facing and provide a safe place to do this. I always aim to work with you in a way that allows you the space to explore how you feel. I like to make sure that when you come to see me you will have the safety and security you need to look at the issues you have and feel that I am right there with you. The journey through the problems and challenges you bring is often a painful one but I will always be there to help you understand what might be going on and be able to hold things with you when you need me to. I offer both online (currently) and face to face therapy (once safe) and I aim to let you know that I am solely here to concentrate on you and what you are bringing, not just the words but also how it feels for you.
How do you start therapy?
Give me a call, email me or fill in the contact form at the end of the page. I will arrange a free phone consult to see if this therapy is for you and to answer any questions you might have. We can then think together about what options are the most suitable for you.
What sort of therapy is available for me?
This will be a weekly or twice weekly therapy at the same time and day for 50 minutes. This service will be in person. This service has limited availability due to the current pandemic. I offer both brief 16 session therapy and open ended.
Individual therapy via Zoom
This will be a weekly or twice weekly therapy held over either Zoom or Skype at the same time and on the same day for 50 minutes.
I offer both brief 16 session therapy and open ended.
This is essential prior to commencing in therapy with me and will allow us to think together as to whether you would like to continue. This will be for 90 minutes.
I normally suggest two sessions in the first instance.
What can I expect at my first therapy appointment?
First appointments can feel difficult at times and can make you feel a little anxious. This is very normal and an important indicator that the therapy means something to you.
I will provide a confidential space for us to think together about what brought you to me and also what I might be able to do to help.
It will be a chance to talk about more practical matters too, including times, days and costs.
It will be a time to ask questions and for us to make sure that this therapy is a treatment that is appropriate for your needs and that you would like to start with me.
I will meet with you twice initially to get to know you better and think together as well about keeping you safe.
