About me and my therapy practice

Counselling is for you and about you. I'd be interested to hear the problem you're facing right now. It can be difficult to book that first appointment, so let me give you an outline of a session. I offer a warm acceptance to really hear what's going on for you. 

Whether you are lost in painful memories, anxious about the future, either or both can leaving you feeling stuck, with little energy or time to live your life more fully now. Perhaps you feel unable to see a clear way through, or have a dilemma that feels impossible to solve. Or lack of confidence leaves you unable to get what you need from your life.

You may be surprised to realise that simply talking about things, learning to express your feelings about what’s happened to you, can help with these issues. Having an experienced counsellor can help you clarify things, raise your feelings of self-worth, or begin to heal the hurt and pain of loss or move towards a decision you’ve been putting off.

I have ten years experience in helping people with all sorts of issues, so let’s see how you and I can support you to explore yours. 

I first built up my private practice in London after completing my training, then moved to Cardiff and had a busy practice there and then through lockdown leaned a lot from working exclusively online and now my new practice in Ludlow is a mixture of both working online and face to face.

Contact me now for current availability.

Practice description

I have recently moved to Ludlow in Shropshire and now work from a comfortable, private and cosy annexe in my home. It has a separate entrance from the rest of the property. Although there is ramped level access up to the house, the door has a step into the room.

There is plenty of on road parking and it is also walking distance from the station or the town centre. 

If you prefer to be in the town centre I also have a room at the Mascall Centre in Ludlow.

Sessions are £25 for the first, then £50 to continue. I can also offer them online if preferred.

My first session

I offer a half price first session as I believe its important to try an initial session to see if it feels right for you and also to see for what the best option is for you and whether we can work together to help you explore and work on what feels important for you.

First sessions are about what you feel comfortable to share right now about this first step you have taken to make an appointment with me. It’s a chance for you to share and say what it is you want from sessions, what outcome you’d like, even if you’re not sure what that is yet. 

Also, to ask me questions, if you have any, about the process or about my qualifications, training and experience.
