My Blog

A Quiet and Peaceful Place

In the St Andrews Counselling and Psychotherapy blog I have covered a number of different topics which I work with clients, how I work and some basic information on Transactional Analysis. 
In this blog I wanted to share with you the environment in which I work. I decided to work from my own consultation room over 2 years ago. I wanted to provide a comfortable, reassuring and peaceful place in which to support the client's healing process.
My consultation room is situated in a quiet, rural environment with ample parking and a confidential way to access and leave without encountering other people.
The photo here shows how the décor and furnishings are both comfortable, practical and easy on the eye. I choose neutral pastel colours for the wall and carpet which contrast with the sofa and chair in bright blues and reds. Wall art provides seascapes and panoramic views and natural life. Across the hall is a private bathroom and toilet.
Behind the sofa is a large bright window which illuminates the whole room and looks out onto gardens, then across fields with the sea on the horizon. There are no other buildings for half a mile and so not overlooked by other homes or offices.

This is the view from my consulting room window. In the distance the sea can be seen and we have great views of the Bell Rock Lighthouse.

This room has been designed to be a peaceful, tranquil haven from the outside world where clients can relax and talk about what's troubling them. This setting supports the development of the therapeutic relationship and balances the concept of a counselling and psychotherapy consultation room with a relaxed and informal space, with few distractions.

My clients have all commented on how warm, welcoming and comfortable the consulting room is and quickly relax into the session. We often share a tea or coffee together whilst we get to know one another.

If you would like to know more about where I work and what I do and if you would like to meet me to discuss what's bothering you, then give me a ring on 07824700980.
