Introductory Session

The first introductory session is a chance for you to assess if I am the right person for you and to see if I feel what I can offer will suit you, before we make an agreement to work together. 

I offer a 30 -45 minute introductory consultation where we can discuss the best route forward for you.

Integrative Counselling

My approach is integrative which means I have been trained in, and can employ several theoretical approaches. I draw from cognitive behavioural therapy, humanistic/person centred, psychodynamic, solution focused brief therapy and existential approaches to adapt the theory to each individual client.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) Incorporates acceptance strategies, mindfulness techniques, and a wide range of behavioural approaches already known to be effective from CBT. ACT is one of a family of interventions inside the CBT tradition which i integrate within therapy.

Trauma Therapy

If you are suffering from the impact of an adverse  childhood or life event, (ACE)

 I can offer a safe space for reflection, healing and support.

 I have had extensive training within the spectrum of Trauma and work therapeutically with survivors of abuse.

Telephone Counselling

I can offer a brief telephone chat prior to your introductory session. 

This  enables me to understand what you need from counselling and for you to feel more comfortable with  me. Telephone counselling available following agreement.

Skype Counselling 

Talbot Counselling &  CBT are soon to offer Skype Counselling to their clients.

 If you would like more information on Skype Counselling please enquire. Therapy is  shown to be more effective when engaged within on a 1-1  basis   and in person.
