I am currently unavailable for private clients on Mondays and Tuesdays as I work for the NHS on these days. Please contact me to discuss possible evening sessions.

About me and my therapy practice

I have wide experience of working within the NHS, private healthcare addiction clinics and in private practice over a number of years.  My work is highly individually specified and our first session will be key to how we both chose to move forwards. Individual respect, support and understanding are key to my work

I provide space and time for you and I to consider the difficulties you face; a place where you can feel secure, supported and build a positive, secure, pathway forwards.

I hold professional postgraduate qualifications in counselling and psychotherapy and an Msc in Addictions Psychology, which may be of particular interest to you if you are seeking support with alcohol, substance or dependency concerns.

Presently, due to Covid-19, I offer online and telephone counselling only. Times and frequency of sessions will be negotiated between us to suit your needs.

Practice description

Sessions have been offered in a calm, comfortable, relaxing and safe surroundings. All sessions are entirely confidential and our sessions will be uninterrupted and you will be undisturbed.

Following changes since Covid-19, all sessions are conducted over the internet or via phone, whichever suits your needs best.

My first session

In our first session I will outline the way we will be working together and what outcomes you would like to achieve and the concerns you feel you need support with.  This session is designed to be constructive, supportive and be the start of our work together and will be conducted at a pace you feel happy with.

I will outline all the confidentiality issues and ask you to agree to our contract of working, which is a way of safeguarding ourselves.

As presently I am not offering direct contact in-person sessions, these will take place over the phone, using zoom, or/and via email.
