About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced general counsellor, having worked within the NHS as a staff counsellor, then as head of a support service to a University Medical School and now in private practice. 

As a former senior manager in local government,  I am also very experienced in dealing with work related issues and through personal experience, of working with traumatising experiences past and present. 

My theoretical approach is Psychodynamic. It acknowledges the impact of our personal histories on our present lives, our sense of self and our relationships with others. I am also experienced in brief solution focussed work and cognitive approaches, able to tailor my approach to the needs of my clients.

I consider affordability for my clients and offer a concessionary rate for key workers and first-responders.

Practice description

I believe that counselling with someone who can listen without judgement, but who can question unhelpful "that's just me" beliefs, while at the same time being on your side, provides a powerful therapeutic experience.

I aim to create a safe and confidential space for you to explore feelings that you may not understand that overshadow your daily life. We will work together to enable you to gain understanding, increase self-awareness and explore changes you may wish/need to make.

You will need a quiet and private space where you will not be disturbed and a good internet or Mobile signal.

I will send a link to your email address if using Zoom, or to your Smart Phone if using WhatsApp.

My first session

I offer a free 30 minute online introductory session as an opportunity for you to talk about what brings you to counselling and to explore what you hope to achieve and for me to determine whether or not I can work with you on this.

It is also an opportunity for you to see if you can work with me, should we decide to arrange further sessions.

I will ask you to complete an assessment exercise and we can discuss affordability for any subsequent sessions we decide to arrange.
