About me and my therapy practice

I strongly believe people can be empowered to find their own answers. My role is to help you with any issues that you may be finding challenging and help you to find clarity, enabling you to gain a deeper understanding of yourself and/or the situation.

As a qualified Integrative counsellor, I draw from a range of different techniques and theories. These include psychodynamic, cognitive, and humanistic approaches to therapy, enabling us to work together to best suit your needs. I offer face to face, online (using video conferencing software) and telephone counselling.


 I have worked with clients 16+ and I am committed to offering an inclusive service which is welcoming to all backgrounds in a supportive and non-discriminatory manner.

What is Online or Telephone Counselling?

Online counselling provides an opportunity to explore a personal difficulty in a confidential and supportive environment. This may include expressing feelings that are painful, and which many of us experience at certain times in our lives. When this happens, it can be difficult to stay positive and cope with everyday life. Online or telephone counselling gives you the opportunity to access counselling support at a time and in a place, which is convenient to you.





Practice description

The aim of counselling is to provide you, the client, with a confidential and safe space to explore personal issues without feeling judged.

I offer time-limited or long term open ended counselling from my private and secure counselling room. I provide a confidential space where you can be heard with respect and without judgement.

Our sessions can be carried out face-to-face, online using secure video conferencing software or by telephone, all from my private counselling room. My counselling room is a quiet and private space situated in my garden, it is completely separate from my house.

My first session

Each session is 50 minutes however the amount of sessions you have will be something we discuss together on your initial session and will depend on what you are struggling with. Some people have a specific issue they want to focus on in therapy, whereas others may want open-ended therapy to discuss thoughts and feelings as they arise from daily experiences. Counselling sessions are weekly on a day and time which is mutually agreed. Our initial assessment session which will last 30 minutes is free of charge, giving us both the opportunity to decide whether we would be comfortable working together. All following 50 minute sessions cost £45 per session which can be paid by bank transfer or cash. I offer some reduced priced sessions for those on a low income or who are unemployed.

 Please contact me if you would like to discuss this further.
