About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I’m an LGBTQ+ friendly registered counsellor with over ten years clinical experience.

As an Integrative Counsellor and Group Therapist I draw upon different models of psychotherapy. Our therapeutic relationship will help inform our work and through this journey together we can explore and change what behaviours are holding you back. I'm experienced working in online formats as well on the phone if this supports your needs.

 I believe in exploring and honouring the importance of the unconscious and early years as well inviting the client to connect with their current somatic experience. 

I have extensive experience working with people with a history of trauma, those with addiction issues as well as people from a challenging family system.  Counselling is a time for you, which provides a confidential space for reflection and to discuss whatever is going on for you. It is a place to safely explore and connect with emotions, as well as to look at our thoughts and explore our histories. It is an opportunity to reflect on our own behavior and what might be preventing us from having peace of mind.

I work with  adults. My work is supportive and understanding of LGBTQ+ people. Within this I am also Kink and Sex positive and work with people in diverse relationships.

Practice description

I offer a therapeutic hour which is 50 minutes.  My fee is £70 for 50 minutes, although low-income sessions are sometimes available.

I can offer both time-limited and open-ended counselling.

I am currently (during the Covid-19 outbreak) only offering online sessions. I recommend working with  ZOOM  for video conferencing sessions or audio sessions. For this you will need a private space, a good internet connection and either a laptop or smartphone should be supportive.

My first session

Our initial session is along an assessment style.

I will take brief details about your history and get an idea of what brought you to therapy. We will explore some of your wants and needs from the work we hope to do together.

This session will also give you a sense of how I work and whether you can envision doing the work with me.

This is a 50 minute appointment.
