About me and my therapy practice

Why Counselling?

You may be thinking about getting in touch but feeling unsure about whether counselling is for you.

There may be things that have happened, recent or in the past, feelings, ways of behaving or changes which you are struggling with. Perhaps things are just not working for you and you can’t seem to pinpoint what it is.

I offer counselling that provides a confidential space and time for you to explore your concerns. In this space I can support you to work through those concerns, to gain insight and new perspectives and so open the opportunity for change and the possibility of living a freer and fuller life.

I have a particular interest in working with people going through life changes – whether that is related to changes in circumstances, internal change of perspective or age and those with experiences of living in different countries as adults and as children, and those wondering about the impact of their or others boarding school education on their current situation.

Where do I begin?

Starting with counselling can seem daunting and you might not be sure yet if it is right for you.

Following a brief introductory call, I find it helpful to have a stand alone first session where we can work together to consider if counselling with me at this time is appropriate for you and if you feel comfortable working with me. 

If we do decide to work together we will meet weekly at the same time and on the same day of the week for a 50-minute session. Each session costs £50.
