About me and my therapy practice
Looking for the right counsellor is a hard process. How do you know whether you feel comfortable enough to talk to someone by just a picture? Or a short bio like this one? The best way to find a comfortable ‘fit’ for you is to meet them!
I offer a free 30 minute session so you can experience myself and my style of counselling. During this we can get a feel for if we are able to work together. I will offer you my honesty and respect while we explore issues you feel you would like to bring to counselling. I will not give you advice, however we can work together to find your own answers. This means you are empowered to discover solutions to your issues in a supportive environment. I have extra training in many areas including the Rewind technique (treating trauma response) and working with couples. For any question about any of this, please email me on the contact information below.
Individual - Adults: £40 x 1 Hr session (block booking discount available)
Individual -Young Person (13+): £30 x session (up to an hour)
Couples: £60 x 1 Hr session
Rewind Therapy: £300 x up to 6 sessions
Concessions available for students, unemployed, etc.

What is on offer
I provide a caring, supportive, and non-judgemental environment to help you find a way through any difficulties you may be facing. What is on offer is Pluralistic style counselling. As a counsellor I offer you my honesty and respect while we explore issues you feel you would like to bring to counselling. This means you are empowered to discover solutions to issues in a supportive environment. My core approach is Person-Centred, meaning you are free to bring whatever you wish to counselling. I will not give you advice/tell you what to talk about, however we will work together to find your own answers. If appropriate, I may introduce you to different styles of interventions I can offer. These may assist in finding understanding or solutions at time where you are feeling stuck/lost in what to talk about or do. You are always free to choose whether it is something you would like to try or not. It is very important in my style of counselling to tailor your sessions to your individual needs through a collaborative relationship.
Each session duration is an hour, unless agreed otherwise. How many sessions you have are completely up to you and you may discontinue at any point you feel comfortable. It is good practice to have a review in every 6th session to appraise how our work has been together. The review should take no longer than 20 minutes within your session. It is also important when ending our work together to have a ‘closing’ session. Endings are important to not only work towards but to discuss your process and to review your goals.
My first session
Free 30 minute session:
This free half an hour assessment is used to find out whether we both are comfortable working with one another. We will go over our working agreement, the reasons for coming to counselling, and go over some background history. You may also choose to undertake an evaluation of where you are now (tick box assessment), which can be used to track your progress in therapy over the length of your journey.
