About me and my therapy practice
I am a fuIly accredited counsellor and psychotherapist with 20 years experience of working with a wide range of issues. I am based between Farringdon, Barbican and Old Street.
There are many reasons for wanting to begin counselling or psychotherapy, although you needn't be clear about your own. My aim, both initially and throughout, is to help you give voice to, as well as understand more fully, those areas of your life that feel difficult, painful, unfulfilled or stuck. Such understanding can be useful, illuminating and cathartic in its own right, but beyond this, it can also help us make decisions about those things we may wish to change, and come to terms with those things that we can't.
The fee for the Initial Session is £50.00. All subsequents sessions are £85. I also have a set amount of concessionary spaces available starting at £55 - do get in touch to enquire about these.

Practice descriptionMy approach to therapy has always been open, non-dogmatic and down-to-earth; in my view, therapy should not be experienced as a 'mysterious' process requiring a special kind of language. It as, at heart, a conversation about living - one that aims to help us struggle or suffer less, whilst also emphasising our possibilities.
My first session
Primarily, the initial session is used to explore the possibility of our working together. It is an opportunity for you to get a better sense of me and how I work and for us to discuss what your expectations of therapy might be. You may also have questions around what therapy entails.
There are no 'right' or 'wrong' ways of starting to talk about what you want from therapy, so there's no need to feel overly concerned about that; there is no correct place to begin. This initial conversation will help you become clearer about what seems most important to you at this time - and we can take things from there.
