About me and my therapy practice
Life is not straightforward and sometimes overwhelming. Often we know what our difficulties are, sometimes we don't. I offer a friendly, supportive environment in which to listen, talk about what matters most to you, and find ways to move forward.
I am a psychotherapist working for Prohealth UK and privately. I have worked in varied settings, providing psychotherapy services for NHS patients, Staffordshire Fire & Police Service, Staffordshire County Council, East Staffs Borough Council, Salford Hospital and local charity.
I work within an existential framework, combining knowledge, training and experience from different therapeutic approaches and schools of thought, all to suit the person sat in front of me and their preferences.
I work from the grounds of a peaceful former church rectory in Hammerwich near Burntwood, and can also see clients in Stafford.
You can contact me via phone, text or email, to discuss availability or ask any questions about the support I can offer.
My first session
The first session is usually an assessment to discuss the history of the difficulties you're having and how I'm best placed to help.
I understand that the first session can be daunting, particularly if you haven't attended therapy before. A rapport and connection with your therapist is important so I do my best to help you feel at ease.
If you're happy to continue at the end of the first session, we complete a therapy contract that outlines confidentiality, expectations etc
