About me and my therapy practice

I originally  undertook over 10 years work with women who have been subject to domestic violence (physical and emotional abuse) and childhood sexual abuse. I now work in private practice and see clients of all genders.

With a passion to support mental health in  the workplace, I run workshops  covering Mental Health, Mental Health for Men, The Menopause, Resilience, Stress Management, Bereavement and Financial Wellbeing. 

I also have a deep interest in the "mind/body" connection and how our thoughts, feelings and emotions can affect our physical health and wellbeing. At the first session I will take a short consultation and together we can set a plan of the goals you wish to achieve from your counselling. I work integratively which means that I adapt my sessions to work in a way the customer would like to work, in order to achieve the best outcome possible.

Sessions are of one hour duration and each session fee is £45.

My working hours are Tuesday to Friday. I take appointments up to 6.00 pm some evenings, but do not work week-ends.

I have a private therapy room at the rear of my home, which has been designed to be both comfortable and calm.

However, due to the current COVID restrictions I am also delivering sessions via online (i.e. Zoom/Whatsapp) or telephone.  This means that clients who don't live locally can book sessions with me. It may be that some clients prefer to speak to a professional from then comfort of their own home and this option is now available. 

My first session

My first session is one hour and will consist of a short consultation being taken - I am GDPR registered and any information will be stored on accordance with GDPR regulations. Any handwritten notes will be kept in a secure locked cabinet in a room which can also be locked. You will not be contacted unless permission is given, and this will only be in relation to your appointments etc.
