About me and my therapy practice

I am a Gestalt Counsellor and my aim is to create a positive and trusting environment within which a professional relationship can develop which will enable you to access the help you wish.

I am empathic and approachable and I strive to provide a caring and safe service so you can feel confident in sharing your thoughts and feelings in a non-judgmental and confidential way.

I offer 1:1 sessions with adults and children, as well as couple work and whole family interventions. I have over 20 years experience in working with Families and Children/Young people. I am able to use a creative and eclectic approach to tailor my interventions to suit the needs of my clients.

The length of these interventions can vary and are also tailored to your individual needs. Initial consultation is FREE. At initial consultation we can talk about what your hoping to achieve from our sessions and how long this may take etc. I can work with you and what you feel that you need.

My hours of work vary and I can offer evening and some weekend appointments. For family sessions, I find that they are best carried out within the family home but this can be flexible if not appropriate.

I work confidentially and ethically, abiding by the BACP code of ethics. I also have an enhanced DBS check.
