About me and my therapy practice

ADHDcounselling.uk is specialised online-only counselling service for people with ADHD, delivered by an ADHD-diagnosed counsellor.

Designed to be a short-term, solution-focussed programme, an initial consultation is followed by six to ten sessions where clients are invited to make use of ADHD-friendly tools, explore the historical impact of the condition, and look at ways to communicate ADHD-specific needs in their professional and personal lives.

Practice description

A psychodynamically-trained therapist, I was diagnosed with ADHD at 42.

Although I already had an established practice, my work has increasingly comprised ADHD clients, and their stories of not being seen, the challenges faced in personal and professional lives, and the impact of later-life diagnosis and the way it reframes our pasts. 

In addition to my therapy work, I am lead facilitator for two online support groups for a large UK ADHD charity. 

My first session

Clients are asked to meet for an initial consultation where reasons for seeking counselling are discussed.

It is during this time that the number and frequency of sessions is discussed, and the fee is set.

The cost of this initial session is £75 and delivered online via Zoom, Skype, Microsoft Teams or Google Meet.

About me and my therapy practice

I am a counsellor specialising in the treatment of anxiety, depression, stress, addiction, issues with self-esteem or relationships, ADHD, and repeating patterns of behaviour you’d like to change.

Trained in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, my practice has developed to emphasise the relationship between therapist and client and to create a safe, understanding environment in which your presenting issues can be explored and better understood. I continue to be committed to my professional development, attending a number of professional development seminars and conferences during 2020 and 2021, and have recently undertaken training in the treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder, addiction, and sexual issues including pornography addiction, and sex and love addiction.

Having been diagnosed with Combined-Type ADHD in 2021, I lead monthly support groups for the charity ADHD UK, and work with numerous ADHD clients and those across the neurodiversity spectrum.

I endeavour to work in a way which does not pathologise any protected characteristic such as sexuality, race, religion, disability, or gender identity or expression.

I otherwise work exclusively in private practice from my home in Whetstone, N20 and offer sessions five days a week either in-person or online via Zoom, Skype, Google Meet or Microsoft Teams. My standard fee for sessions is £60, payable by bank transfer, credit or debit card, or Apple or Google Pay.

I love my work, and while the journey of therapy can be challenging, being a witness to my clients change has been an experience for which I am continually thankful. I believe very strongly that someone’s financial position should not be a barrier to them seeking counselling help, and I am able to offer affordable sessions to those on low incomes, or to students or key workers.

Practice description

My peaceful, private office offers a confidential space located in a residential area with free, unrestricted parking at any time. 

My first session

During an initial consultation, I will likely ask what has bought you to counselling as well as a few practical details, and offer the opportunity for you to ask any questions you might have about what to expect from counselling. 

Initial consultations last approximately 50 minutes and are an opportunity for you to meet me and get a feel for how I work, and for me to ensure my skill-set is appropriate for the issues you're describing.
