Therapist - Stoke-on-Trent

Sessions from £40.00



Sessions last one hour, and are available on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. I do not work Thursdays. In the interests of self care, I do not reply to enquiries on Thursdays and Sundays. 

Just to let you know, and save you time: I only work one-to-one with individuals, I do not offer couples or family counselling services.

About me and my therapy practice


Do I really need therapy? The world is a mess right now, it's "normal" to feel down, upset, confused, anxious and unsure... right? Yes, totally but only you know what's "normal" for you: how is your own world, your own personal mental health. Have a word with yourself: Stop and take time to really check in... How that's feeling for you? Are you coping ok? 

How are you doing? 

It's ok to need a bit of help, a little support, someone to listen: therapists need therapy too. The bravest thing you can say is "Help!" 

So, if you're finding yourself in need of a little space to work things out, come on over to my website and have a read... maybe I can help you to help yourself. 

In the meantime, Please Mind How you go? Keep safe.

Take care


Practice description

In 2021, I celebrated my Private Practice having been open for 7 years. On average I see 12-15 clients a week, 3-4 sessions a day. I limit how many clients I see, so that my clients get the best attention and service possible. I have been a registered member of the BACP since 2013, I have a Clinical Supervisor that I see every month, and I work within the BACP ethical framework for the counselling professions.

I hold a Post Graduate Diploma Counselling Psychology from Keele University (October 2014)

During my training and since qualifying I have worked with Place 2 Be, Embrace CVOC and The Dove Service, both as a sessional counsellor and I worked on a joint Tier 2 project facilitated by The Dove Service for Staffordshire County Council and CAMHS to provide one-to-one therapy sessions for children and young people aged 4 to 18 in schools and children’s centres.

Professionally Qualified Counsellors are required to continue their training and complete minimum hours of CPD (continuing professional development) per year, and this is audited too.

My first session

During your first session we would talk about what fetches you in to Counselling, and what you are hoping to gain from your time with me in sessions. I have a page on my website dedicated to explaining as much as I am able to do so about what your first session might look like:

I also have a FAQ page to try and help out with all those niggling practical worries:

I personally write and edit my website so all the information on there should be up to date, and should answer most of your queries. If there is anything else you might like to know, then please do contact me. I will do my very best to answer your query and put you at your ease.
