Welcome to my website. I hope that you find this a useful and helpful place to be.
I’m LJ and I am a qualified psychotherapist working online, which means that hopefully you have a comfortable chair already waiting for you.
I offer a free first appointment to get to know you a little, and for you to get a feel of whether you’d like to work with me. It’s important to me that you are able to choose the best possible fit for you, and it can get expensive paying for a lot of one-off appointments where you feel that the counsellor/psychotherapist is not a good fit. For this reason, I offer you the first hour that we meet, for free, so that you can decide without too many other factors getting in the way.
You’ll notice I say both ‘counselling’ and ‘psychotherapy’. My post-graduate diploma is in ‘person-centered psychotherapy and counselling’, therefore I am both counsellor and psychotherapist. But definitions of counselling and psychotherapy vary, and it doesn’t matter to me if you want me to be your psychotherapist, or your counsellor, as long as we can work together.
