About me and my therapy practice

Whatever you’re facing, you don't need to do it alone; no-one is an island and finding the right help can make all the difference. Working together, I'll be committed to helping you find a way through, guided by what you want, what works best for you and the pace you want to go at. I have thirty years' experience supporting people to work with uncertainty and familiar habits; to recognise choices and increase their resilience.

I've helped many clients find effective ways to reduce and manage debilitating anxiety about themselves, the world and the future. This can be life-changing for people living with the impact of anxiety and stress. I'm experienced in supporting clients to improve their interpersonal relationships. I also specialise in helping people develop better emotional regulation, and address barriers to this. I witness with my clients the power of working together towards acceptance, change, understanding or whatever it is they need.

I work with people going through challenges including: anxiety; BPD/EUPD; family and relationship issues; compulsive eating; trauma; depression; bereavement; health problems; identity issues; stress; and addiction. This list is not exhaustive: I work with people, whatever they bring, and I've worked with too many issues and experiences to list here.

I offer compassion-focused (CFT), ACT, person-centred and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) approaches. I'm certified (by BIDBT) at enhanced level to deliver DBT skills training to individuals and groups. I have lots of experience working both with people living with BPD/EUPD and people with compulsive eating issues.

I'm trained by Bangor University as a mindfulness teacher and run courses on anxiety, eating issues and stress/resilience. I previously worked for NHS Public Health where I wrote a sex and relationships programme that won the GP Practice Award. 

If you think you might like to work together then please get in touch with any questions or to arrange an initial call or session. 

Practice description

I provide psychological therapy to adults and young people over 18.

I'm currently offering counselling sessions online and by telephone. 

I offer a sliding session fee scale of £60-£65 for private therapy.

My standard fee is £65. My concessionary rate of £60 is for anyone with financial constraints/lower income. If you need to pay the lower rate, just let me know.

My first session

I offer the option of a 15 minute initial phone chat to discuss practical issues and get a sense of what it would be like to work together.  The initial call is free and optional and can be set up at a time that works for you.

An initial session gives us a sense of of what it would be like to work together. Initial sessions last fifty minutes and this is also my standard session time. Longer sessions are also possible with prior arrangement.

Initial sessions can be more or less structured, depending on what you need and prefer. At the end we'll have time to briefly review how you've found it and you can either decide in the session or after it if you'd like to book further sessions together.

Appointments are usually weekly and I offer fortnightly sessions if this suits you better for practical or financial reasons. Evidence suggests that weekly sessions can be more effective. However, it depends what you want and need from therapy and many of my clients have valued the support of long-term fortnightly sessions.
