About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced, qualified with a Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) and registered (MBACP) integrative counsellor and psychotherapist. 

I am currently offering online and telephone therapy. I specialise in working with individual adults, older adults and young people aged 16+. My practice is in Earley, easily accessible from Reading and Wokingham.

I provide a safe, confidential space for you to feel free to make sense of your life, your concerns, feelings and thoughts. I am an empathic , compassionate, accepting therapist and I believe that therapy is a collaborative process, where we can explore your difficulties and find ways forward together.  I will work at your pace, to explore your concerns, in a way that best suits you. I may ask about your childhood experiences and relationships and you can feel free to tell your story to a genuinely warm, non-judgmental therapist. 

As an integrative therapist, I integrate humanistic-relational, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural (CBT) approaches. I also offer mindfulness techniques for self-compassion, self-acceptance and relaxation, which many people find helpful.

I adhere to the BACP's ethical framework for safe practice.

My first session

An initial session is £20 for a 20 minute video or telephone call. This will enable us to explore your therapeutic needs and what you desire from therapy. It also includes deciding whether we will work well together.
