What can I expect?
An initial meeting to see if counselling, psychotherapy and/or coaching is right for you
We offer an initial meeting to understand what brings you to counselling now and to explore how counselling or coaching can best help and support you. It gives you the opportunity to ask any questions you might have and ensure you are happy working with the counsellor before committing to any further sessions.
Counselling provides you with a space for you to talk about feelings that worry or upset you, to make sense of how the past impacts on you now, to increase self awareness of patterns in relationships or behaviour, and to work on resolving or coming to terms with past or current conflicts and hurts.
Coaching focuses on agreeing realistic and achievable personal or career goals for the future and working together on how you can achieve them, including overcoming obstacles and self-limiting behaviours. An important part of the process is visualising how you will feel when you have achieved a goal. We offer coaching for improved self confidence, work performance and specifically for Public Speaking.
Supervision as an experienced Supervisor Maria offers cost effective one-to-one Supervision for counsellors and trainees. This can be monthly for an hour and a half, or bi-weekly for an hour, according to your requirements. Additional services include helping you develop or establish your private practice and assistance as required through the BACP Accreditation process.
Weekly 50 minute Sessions, short or longer term to suit you
We meet at an agreed time weekly for 50 minutes for Online, Walk & Talks or Face-to-Face in the Carshalton Beeches or Sutton practice. The overall number of sessions is set by you and this can either be a few to work on a specific issue, or more where you feel you would benefit from longer term support.
