About me and my therapy practice
That first step into counselling can feel daunting. My priority is to welcome you when we meet. I'm qualified, experienced and offer a free first session, usually within a week of contact. Evening & Saturday sessions, reduced-rate weekday daytime sessions available.
We all find things hard at times in our lives. When we do, it can be good to work through our thoughts and feelings with someone who seeks to understand, not judge us, and offers helpful reflection on our situation.
I am experienced working with adults, young people and children. I am trained in several therapeutic approaches that I draw on flexibly depending on what works for you. I believe each person has their own inherent resources and potential for change and growth. A good counselling relationship helps activate that potential by the counsellor and client working together.

You can email me or leave a message on my answerphone. There's no need to provide a detailed message - just contact details and an expression of interest. My usual response time is two working days.
