About me and my therapy practice

My training is in person-centred and experiential psychotherapy and counselling. In addition to this, I have 28 years experience as a Registered Mental Nurse, where I worked primarily (but not exclusively) with people who had substance use problems. 

I completed an MSc in Person Centred and Experiential Psychotherapy in September 2017 and have worked in an NHS staff support service as a counsellor since then, alongside my private practice. 

My approach is based on offering a compassionate, non judgmental approach within a safe environment in the hope that this will allow clarity, reinforce current coping mechanisms and foster future growth. This attitude acknowledges that each person is  unique, and aims to enhance their sense of autonomy and agency.  

Although the foundation of my practice is Person-Centred, I now describe my approach as Pluralistic. This is based on the aspiration that each passage of therapy can be modified according to the unique needs of the individual, providing it remains within the competence of the therapist.

I charge on a sliding scale from £30 to £60 per session, according to what you can afford. I leave this decision entirely to you. 

Practice description

Until March 2020, my practice was exclusively via face-to-face work. Following the Covid pandemic, Like many therapists, my practice became online-only. I am now very excited to say that from 1st December 2022, I will be able to offer face to face appointments at the Therapy Rooms in Broomhill, Sheffield ( These slots will be available on Thursday mornings between 9:00 and 12:00, and will sit alongside my online provision. 

Please feel free if you require further information.

My first session

I offer a free initial consultation by phone or Zoom to clarify whether or not we can work together. I find this useful for both of us in terms of clarifying your needs, and helping you decide whether or not our counselling relationship could meet them. Following this first meeting, most people like to go away and reflect on our discussion. 

I am happy to answer further questions by email if they arise after this contact.
