About me and my therapy practice

I am a warm and creative BACP accredited psychotherapist with lots of experience helping adults improve their ability to reflect. Making the time to think about who you are, what you might feel and what you may need matters, especially during periods of stress, when our thinking capacity might be reduced.

Practice description

In the therapy room, the thinking process is shared. Together, we might try to find a different perspective or explore how the past might be impacting on the present. We may look at what is happening in your life right now and what you feel about this. We could think more deeply about how you might want to change or consider how to manage when there are things we cannot change. I am sure that the environments we have lived, studied and worked in affect us deeply and there are times when we need support to negotiate this, or a safe space to help us make sense of it all.

My first session

A pre-therapy appointment aims to give you the chance to discuss what you would like to get from counselling and psychotherapy and to decide if this service is the right fit for you. It is important for you to choose a counsellor or psychotherapist that you feel comfortable working with. The appointment will last for up to 1 hour and costs £45. I will ask you some questions and usually take notes.
