About me and my therapy practice

I will provide a weekly counselling session. This will be on the same day and at the same time every week, this helps you to develop confidence In my availability to you. 

I will offer a secure and safe environment which will be one a comfortable place for you to talk.

Our weekly sessions will allow you the time and space to tell me about yourself, your experiences, your childhood, your relationships as well as your thoughts and feelings. Together we will think about your behaviour and the choices you make. We will start to help you understand who you are to make sense of things.

Practice description

I am a single private practitioner. I work psychodynamically with individuals and couples. 

I also work with individuals who have experience of being part of a cult, high demand group or coercive relationship.

My consulting room is based at a premise shared by other counsellors. I use a room on the first floor accessible only by a flight of stairs. 

It is a light, clean and airy room large enough to allow for us to sit 2 metres apart.  I sanitise all of the public areas and ask you to sanitise upon arrival. 

My first session

I start working with an initial session. This is for one hour and twenty minutes rather than the weekly fifty minutes. I charge £90.00 for this session for individuals or £125.00 for couples. It may be at a different time and day to your weekly on-going sessions. During this session we will agree a convenient working time, set our working contract and start thinking about the issues we will work on together.
