About me and my therapy practice
I work as a relational and existential therapist in private practice, and am also employed as a Psychotherapist with the Harrogate Homeless Project. I work from the understanding that who we are and how we make sense of our lives is deeply informed by the ways in which we relate with others, and also with ourselves. The ways in which we describe and make sense of our situations are hugely varied. I draw upon many years of mental health experience in engaging and supporting individuals in distress since 1998. My priority is always to attend to our way of working together; reflecting upon your own unique experience. It is this which underpins my approach at all times. My job is to provide the conditions and opportunities in which you may freely explore what is happening for you. The more fully we are able to achieve this, the more valuable therapy can become.
I charge £25 for our initial session and between £40 and £60 per session after this; determined by your (or the person who is paying for therapy's) level of income.
You might prefer to find out more at this stage through a brief telephone conversation. In an initial 15 minute call we can discuss your situation, and I can offer you a view of whether therapy may be helpful at this time, as well as answer any questions that you might have. A call at this stage would be free of charge and there would be no expectation to proceed further if you don't feel ready. Thank you
