Counselling and psychotherapy are ways of giving attention to aspects of our lives which trouble us. People will be looking for a therapist for different reasons and want different things.

You may want to address a particular situation in a fixed number of meetings. Have a more open-ended exploration of longer-term concerns or may not yet be sure what you are looking for.

There may be practical constraints of time, money, work patterns, responsibilities which affect how you want to arrange counselling.

I can work in the way that suits you best in afternoon and evening appointments in Shrewsbury, Shropshire.

Different people find different techniques useful.
The core way of working together is through purposeful and constructive conversation.
I may also use drawing, writing, craft, diagrams and mindmaps if that fits the way you think. This would be entirely up to you.
Where managing difficult situations is a priority, I may introduce practical tasks and specific techniques.
