About Me – what you can expect from me as a therapist

About Me Justin Clark - about me

Choosing a therapist can be difficult, so I’ve tried to include some relevant information about me and how I work.  I’ve been working with clients since 2011 and have been in private practice since 2013.

As a therapist you can expect me to:

  • provide a safe, confidential place, where you can talk about yourself and your life, which may be painful or confusing and may make you feel uncomfortable, angry or unhappy
  • offer an opportunity to think and talk about yourself and your concerns in a way that you often can’t do with family and friends
  • offer a place and time which is just for you to talk about those things that bother you
  • listen to the way you feel and how this affects you and others
  • accept the way you are without judging you
  • help you to make the changes you would like to happen
  • work hard to create a good therapeutic relationship with you so that we can work well together
  • understand that it is not always easy to talk about problems and to express your feelings
  • work with you towards improving your well being

Some things I won’t do:

  • offer to ‘cure’ you
  • judge you
  • make decisions for you
  • take advantage of you
  • spend time talking about my problems inappropriately

I work within the BACP Ethical framework, which sets out the values and principles underpinning good practice, and ultimately help ensure that you receive  a safe and effective service.
