I respond quickly and I am flexible. I can adapt to day and evening sessions - a session is usually 50 minutes and takes place once a week, but it can be shorter and twice a week, or even fortnightly. What suits you? What you can commit to is important - it really depends on what you need from our relationship. 

When you do choose to begin, the most important decision is that the time is right for you and the therapeutic relationship fits.

About me and my therapy practice

I have always been interested in people, whether that is in education or therapy. I am passionate about helping people become more aware of their past or present situation, and then working towards meaningful change. Helping you to discover and grow into the best version of yourself in an organic way, not striving to fashion yourself into some ideal version or providing a brief sticking plaster. 

Each person’s reason for seeking therapy is unique. The benefits to be had from addressing the wide-ranging challenges you face are numerous. Perhaps there are personal development goals in work and relationships but something always holds you back. 

The part that doesn't change in client relationships is my commitment to understanding you and helping you meet the realistic aims that you decide.                                    

Practice description

I am an integrative therapist using person-centred & psychodynamic approaches. 

I work both online (Skype, Zoom) and face-to-face outdoors (Westonbirt, Cirencester & Stroud). Sometimes a combination of both! If you'd like time-limited therapy (to work for an agreed number of sessions) then I can do that. What I can offer ranges from one-off sessions to an open-ended agreement where we review progress regularly. 

I have a background in education, so I am also passionate about working with staff mental health in schools, colleges and universities.

My first session

When making contact please let me know how you'd like to be contacted in return and I'll get back to you promptly - I respond quickly because I understand that anyone who has come this far has made their mental health a priority.

I usually start with a pre-session call for which there is no charge - I am happy to make this introductory call where we can speak without obligation and gently discuss your reasons for seeking therapy. You can then decide if you'd like us to work together. 

If we do, our first session will involve some assessment of where you are and your experience/understanding of therapy. Then some exploratory conversation. The first sessions are £25.
