About me and my therapy practice

I am currently providing one-to-one counselling via secure online platforms such as Zoom and Skype, or via the telephone. In very specific circumstances I also occasionally offer home visits.

I am a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor and Coach offering a safe, judgement free, supportive and empathic space for you to explore your present and past experiences.

I am an Integrative Therapist, which means I draw on and incorporate various approaches to therapy in order to provide you with a more personalised counselling service that suits you, your current situation and your goals. I can offer you a safe space where you will feel respected, heard and supported.

Issues I work with include, but are not limited to; anxiety, depression, OCD, sexual abuse, sexual assault, domestic violence, PTSD, stress and anger management. I also have experience working with specific learning difficulties, including Dyslexia, ADHD and Autism.

Although there is still some stigma attached to taking up therapy and discussing mental health, taking the time to explore and talk about our emotional needs and mental health can be extremely rewarding. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch – I would be happy to discuss whatever is on your mind.

Practice description

Currently all sessions are held online, via Zoom or Skype; or via the telephone.  In very specific circumstances I also occasionally offer home visits.

Sessions last for 50 minutes and usually take place on a weekly basis.

I am happy to work short or long term with my clients.

Payments should be made in advance of the session via BACS transfer.

My first session

Our first session usually involves a discussion around what you are looking to get from the therapy and how we might work together. 

Sometimes this will also involve contracting and an "assessment" which really just involves talking about your past and present.

First sessions are usually 50 minutes in length.
