About me and my therapy practice

I offer confidential counselling in a non judgmental environment. I have worked extensively within GP surgeries for over eight years. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, phobias, bereavement, loss, relationship, family and employment issues and domestic and sexual, emotional and physical abuse.  I work for several EAP's (Employee Assistant Programme) as well as BUPA and am able to offer solution focussed therapy.

I offer online and walking therapy.   Online can work very well, as it saves you travel time and can be undertaken in a place that is comfortable and safe for you. I aim to return to face to face work later in the year, which will be dependent upon any Government restrictions.  Walking therapy allows us to include the natural world in our work and is taken at your pace.

I am experienced in working with trainee counsellors.

I can work both time limited and longer term. My room  for face to face workiong is on the ground floor overlooking fields and provides a tranquil space. I have free off road parking.

Practice description

I work from both a time limited and open ended perspective. This is something we can discuss on your first session. Currently all my work is online as my practice room would not allow us to have 2m distance between us. I also offer walking therapy, the sessions are the same length - 50 mins and in most cases we will be walking side by side. I will endeavour to ensure that all government guidelines are followed with regards to the current pandemic. 

My first session

During our first session (assessment) I will take some notes and we can have a discussion about the way I work and what you want from the therapy. This session also gives you the chance to see if you feel comfortable with me and if I feel I can offer you the support you need. There is no obligation to book future sessions if you feel there isn't a connection between us.
