Sessions from £96.00


  • Flexible hours available


I work mainly on Tuesdays and Wednesday and Friday afternoons, and occasional Mondays.

About me and my therapy practice

I am a humanistic counsellor, psychotherapist and supervisor of counsellors and psychotherapists. I am a EMDR practitioner. There is a lot of evidence to show that a very important part of successful therapy is the quality of the therapeutic relationship between therapist and client, and this is an important aspect of my work. I see my job as offering you a confidential, non-judgemental and safe space to say the unsayable, to to update your view of yourself and to become truly the person you are supposed to be. 

Practice description

I work online and in-person, depending on your needs and wants, and what is feasible and practical. Face to face is preferable, but not always possible, and since the first lockdown I have continued to work online with most of my clients. When working in-person we obviously have to take the necessary health and safety precautions with COVID 19 in mind. All my work is trauma informed, whether online or in person.

My first session

I offer an initial session of 30 minutes free of charge so that you can get a "feel" for what it might be like working with me, and for me to begin to get to know you and what brings you to therapy.  We can then make a decision as to whether or not to continue, and you may want to give yourself a day or two to "sleep on it", before doing so.
