About me and my therapy practice

I am a BACP accredited counsellor and psychotherapist who specialises in working with loss and grief.

My work reflects my understanding that loss and grief are an expected part of life. We experience grief at various times in our lives and this is not restricted to when someone dies but when we lose anything that is important to us: our relationships, our dreams of having a family, our hopes and expectations, independence, jobs, pets, home or health. As a result, I work with people who are grieving from a wide range of losses.

Living with losses in life is not so much about getting over those losses as finding ways to live a happy and full life that includes them. Through our work together I can support you in making sense of losses and adjusting to a different life and different expectations.

Many people find that 6 – 12 sessions will make significant changes to their lives. For others, longer term work best fits their needs and goals. We will work together to achieve a counselling intervention tailored to suit you as an individual.

I charge £40 for an initial consultation so we can see if it feels like a good fit for us to work together. My fees are £60 per session thereafter. Sessions last 50 minutes and reduced fees are available when blocks of 6 sessions are booked and paid for in advance. 

I am able to see a limited number of clients at a concessionary rate, so please feel free to contact me to discuss this if the above fees are cost prohibitive.

About me and my therapy practice

Ongoing clinical supervision for practitioners is an essential ingredient of effective counselling and psychotherapy – both in terms of maintaining ethical practice and safeguarding you and your clients. I have been supervising qualified counsellors and those in training since 2006.

I provide supervision in accordance with the BACP ethical framework and offer a safe, supportive, challenging and creative space to explore your client work.

Key areas include:

  1. Assessment and evaluation
  2. Direction of the work (including periods of ‘stuckness’)
  3. Awareness of and reflection on the counselling process
  4. Maintaining appropriate boundaries and professional ethics
  5. Working with dynamics in the therapeutic relationship
  6. Safeguarding issues

I work with supervisees of all different modalities and am an approved supervisor with the University of Salford.

I charge £40 for an initial consultation (lasting 50 minutes) so we can see if it feels like a good fit for us to work together. My fees are £75 per 1.5 hour supervision session thereafter. 

Reduced fees may be available for supervisees in training, so please feel free to contact me to discuss.

Types of therapy

Brief therapy, Existential, Integrative, Person centred, Psychodynamic
