At the moment I am not taking on any new clients.

About me and my therapy practice

I work with clients on a wide range of issues including loss, self-esteem, anxiety and isolation. This may be linked to childhood experiences, adult loss, systemic inequalities or combinations of these.

I do a lot of work with other people who identify as LGBTQI* and people who are exploring their identity. I have additional professional supervision with Gendered Intelligence to support some of this work.

I  work with people who are exploring the intersection of faith/community and identity, particularly where these might clash. I also work with people who are addressing spiritual abuse or abuse within a faith community/setting. This work is with those who still practice a faith as well as with those who do not and those who are unsure.

Practice description

I offer open ended therapy in weekly 50 minute sessions. Our work is reviewed on a regular basis to ensure that we have a shared understanding of the focus of the work and what it is that we are working toward.

Confidentiality is an essential part of the work and something that is discussed in depth during the first session and revisited periodically during the work.

I do not provide emergency support between sessions.

My first session

Ideally I have a short phone call with prospective clients after they first contact me. If we decide to continue then a first appointment is arranged usually within one to two weeks. This will be a phone or a video appointment. During this session we will explore what it is the client wants to work on, what their existing support network is like, what they can expect from me and if relevant, what their previous experiences of counselling have been like. If we both feel that entering into a therapeutic relationship will benefit the client, then we will make a second appointment, normally for the following week. If we do not continue working together this first session is not charged for.
