About me and my therapy practice

I will offer you a secure and safe space, in a calm, quiet and comfortable place for you to begin to talk and to share your story with me. 

Seeking therapy can be an overwhelming or a daunting experience. We will take time to develop a relationship and our working alliance. 

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 behavior and the choices you make. We will start to help you to understand who you are and to make sense of things and implement the changes you may be seeking.

Sometimes we have an expectation of what we are hoping to seek or gain from therapy and sometimes we are wanting a change in our lives, to develop an understanding of ourselves, our lifestyle, our choices, experiences or our relationships. Or we may not really know what we are wanting from therapy. Therapy sessions provide an opportunity to explore this in a confidential, non-judgmental environment. 

Practice description

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

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

I also offer psychodynamic therapy who have experienced trauma, loss, bereavement. I have experience of psychosexual problems and relationship difficulties. 

My consulting room is my own private space which I do not share with any other practioners.

I am registered with the BACP, the ICO, I have indemnity insurance and I work within GDPR regulations.

It is a light, clean and airy room. 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 £105.00 for this session for individuals or £135.00 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. A weekly fifty minute session is £60 for an individual and £105 for a couple.
