About me and my therapy practice

It can feel really daunting taking the first steps into therapy but I am sure you will benefit from our sessions. I'm an experienced therapist who works with adults and young people aged 14 and over. I offer both long & short term psychotherapy and counselling. I offer a warm, empathic and welcoming space where you can explore the issues that concern you. The therapeutic relationship we create is at the heart of my work and as an integrative therapist this means I am able to adapt my way of working according to your needs. During our sessions I will draw on a wide range of theories and approaches to help you.

Practice description

For 20 years I worked as artist management in the music industry. A key role during this time was building strong relationships, supporting artists through many complex situations and enabling their transitions through many difficult areas in their lives. I work as a counsellor for the NHS in a GP Practice as well as for a community based charity.

At times in sessions it can sometimes feel impossible to articulate a feeling or it may be too painful to use words. Alongside traditional talk therapy, I offer a chance to work creatively within the sessions. I am trained in sandtray therapy and guided imagery which can allow us to access other parts of ourselves.

As well as working with adults, I am also trained to work with children and adolescents. I have some availability at the moment. Please call for further details.

My first session

It's so important that you find the therapist that feels right for you. I charge half price for the first assessment session and this is a chance for us to meet to talk in more depth about what brings you to therapy and if you feel the sessions are right for you.
