About me and my therapy practice
I have over 40 years experience in Counselling, Psychotherapy and Financial Business sectors working in a variety of wide-ranging environments.
I believe all therapy is personal and has to fit in accordance with each individual’s explicit and implicit needs, which are in continuous development. Therefore, my primary focus is to always work with a client’s interests at the forefront to ensure they receive the maximum benefit. This means I work in a very compassionate, conscientious and respectful manner creating a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment of support where my objective is to empower and release a client’s potential.
The value of my work largely lies in the collaborative quality of the therapeutic relationships I build with clients. For me, it is of paramount importance and an essential part of the therapeutic process. Clients evolving trust in my honesty, ability and character measure my success and I find the experience of witnessing their life changes, thoughts, feelings and behaviour both rewarding and enriching.
I naturally have an open minded, intuitive, down to earth and attentive approach where my adaptable style of therapy is interactive and engaging - bringing warmth, strength, energy, passion and a respectful, accepting presence to my work - but I can also be appropriately challenging.

I am able to offer a limited number of reduced rate therapy slots, therefore please ask if cost is preventing you from accessing therapy when you may need it the most. This is strictly dependent on availability. Please ask about this when you make your initial enquiry.
My first session
Sometimes it is hard to pick up the telephone, but getting professional help could make the difference to your life and give back the control you yearn for. Even if you are not sure whether the time is right, or if therapy will help you, please feel free to telephone, message or e-mail me in total confidence. I will be happy to discuss any part of the process, hopefully putting your mind at ease.
If you feel ready for therapy please contact me by telephone, or email and we can arrange an assessment session.
At the assessment I will gather background information about you and explore what has brought you to therapy, finding out what you hope, expect and want to achieve. You will have the opportunity to ask anything you may not be sure about, at which time we can establish whether we feel comfortable working together. If we decide to continue, subsequent sessions are normally on a regular weekly basis and available on either a short or long term contract - but ultimately the frequency of sessions is based on what you feel is right for you. The duration of each session is 50 - 80 minutes.
