About me and my therapy practice

I work in partnership with you using two different styles of counselling to explore the origins of your issues, and to understand the impact they have on your daily life. This combined approach helps us to identify unhelpful thinking styles, repeating patterns of behaviour, and the unconscious processes that are contributing to, and maintaining your difficulties. Through this exploration we can together find ways of increasing your self-awareness, developing greater innner strength, and furthering your personal growth and emotional wellbeing.

Practice description

I work from my home in a dedicated counselling room situated on the first floor. There is driveway parking available, and a ground floor lavatory and washroom  off the entrance hallway. I am currently only offering online counselling sessions, but this may change very soon in line with government guidance regarding social distancing and small business operations. I own three dogs and whilst they remain in other parts of the house, I am unable to offer sessions to anyone who may be allergic to pet hair. 

My first session

I offer an initial consultation at a reduced rate of £30. During this session I will gather your contact details, and we will complete an information sheet regarding your current and past health, your family circumstances, and details of why you wish to undertake therapy. We will establish how we might work together, and you will have the opportunity to ask questions about the counselling process. The session will last approximately 30-40 minutes.
