About me and my therapy practice
If you are thinking about starting therapy then it’s likely that you are hoping for something different in your life. Perhaps you feel anxious or hopeless and you’re not sure why. Maybe there are specific events, contexts or relationships that feel challenging. I believe that therapy can help us to understand not only the causes of our suffering or what is no longer working for us, but also our desires and what we want from life.
Whatever brings you to therapy, my role as your therapist is to offer you a safe relationship and space to talk about anything you want, without judgement. I will give you my complete and respectful attention and will help you to explore and make meaning of your thoughts, feelings and experiences, both past and present. Whilst it may feel counter-intuitive, our emotions, even if very difficult, can help us to reach a place of acceptance, self-understanding and growth. Together, we can get to a place where you are more in touch with yourself and are able to make more conscious decisions and changes. No matter what comes up, my intention is to stand alongside you through all of it.
As an integrative therapist, I can draw on a range of psychotherapeutic approaches (including psychodynamic, humanistic or relational) which allows me to work flexibly with you. I am a BACP registered therapist with 5+ years of intensive training in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy at the Minster Centre. As well as private practice, I have been seeing clients for several years in various charities and counselling organisations.
I am currently offering online zoom sessions only.
I charge £35 for the initial session and after that my fee is £75 per session. Each session is 50 minutes long. Having regular sessions is an important aspect of therapy and will help you to get the most out of it. If we decide to work together and depending on availability, we will pick a time that works and I will hold this slot for you with a view to us seeing each other once-weekly.
My first session
It can feel difficult to take the first step and it is important to find a therapist that feels right for you. We can have an initial session to get a sense of each other and explore some of what brings you to therapy and what you are hoping to gain from it. The first few sessions will be a bit more structured than sessions going forward as they typically include me running through a few questions about your history and current situation.
You can contact me by email or phone. If I am unable to answer the phone please leave your name and contact details and I will get back to you when I can.
I look forward to hearing from you.
