I am flexible with my time, however, I usually offer sessions from Monday-Friday, and on some weekends between 10.00 am to 8.00 pm. 

I offer a FREE 15-minute introductory talk, so get in touch, and let’s have a chat. 

About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified psychotherapist and coach.

I obtained my Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative counselling and Coaching (level 7). I use the Personal Consultancy Model which is a new and unique approach. This modality allows me to use various robust psychotherapy methodologies and coaching tools to support you in making long-lasting changes in your life.

This is a collective timely limited process and together we will identify any emotional obstacles and hurdles that are holding you back from making a sustainable and enduring change in your life. These could include work challenges, making a career change, suffering from desperation, managing stress, anxiety, lack of motivation, and other problems.

In addition to the above mentioned, I also have years of experience working with people from various cultures, ethnicities, and backgrounds who were stuck in their personal or professional lives and supported them to find a way to move forward. I worked as a manager for a number of years.

As mentioned previously, I offer a free FREE 15-minute introductory talk, so if you are interested please get in touch, and let’s have a chat.

Practice description

We very much work together, you talk and I listen and collectively we explore issues and options. We also agree and set a contract in which basically you have autonomy and it is very much up to you to talk about issues that you would like to speak about and share with me in each session. 

Within this concept utilising psychotherapy can assist us to explore your past and present. This process is like building a foundation to build a house jointly. In addition, I introduce and use coaching techniques that in turn will help us to construct the actual house.

My style is to work at a pace that you are happy and comfortable with. We will look at any homework/exercises that may have been given previously and discuss the outcomes. Moving forward, we will jointly design a bespoke plan for you.

In every step of this journey, I will state what approach is best for you and why. So collectively we can utilise a path that best suits your desires and goals.

As an integrative counsellor, I work with a variety of different therapy approaches. This allows me to ‘integrate’ multiple therapies depending on what each individual needs.

I work with people aged 18 and over. In special circumstances I may work with 16-17 year olds, please ring to discuss. I currently do not work with people under the age of 16. If you require help for a child it is best to contact the BACP who can recommend therapists for you.

I currently take sessions via zoom.

My first session

After our FREE 15-minute introductory chat you can book your first assessment session. This provides a chance for me to understand what brought you here and why you need therapy. You can ask any questions and see if I’m the right therapist for you. This is also an opportunity for me to tailor a suitable and bespoke plan based on your needs.

As part of this process, we can collectively decide how many sessions we need to start with and review as you progress.

My therapy prices are £65 per session for 50 minutes.

Coaching prices are £90 per session for 90 minutes.

I also offer concessions to students and low-income clients.

I strongly believe that no one should be denied counselling, so please contact me if you wish to discuss other arrangements.

I offer discounts for block bookings.
