My first session

For new clients that reach out to me, I'm happy offer a free 20 minute consultation online/or on the phone where we can 'meet', I can hear a brief overview of the issues that you are experiencing and you can ask any questions you have.

After that, I'm happy to work with you face to face or online - whichever you prefer.

Whether face to face or online, I will offer you confidentiality, anonymity (if desired, by meeting with cameras off/ or on the phone), a safe space and a warm, friendly, supportive and non judgemental therapist (me).

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch - I'm happy to answer.
