About me and my therapy practice

Over 40 years I have worked therapeutically with people in a variety of ways, one to one and in groups, children and adults, in education, community groups and business environments. 

Working with you I can draw on experience in Psychodynamic, Humanistic, person centred and integrative counselling. I follow your lead.

I have lived experience of bereavement by suicide and life threatening illness. I am drawn to working with people going through transition whatever this is triggered by. 

Practice description

I work in a variety of ways with children and adults and the spaces in between. Any shade of gender, culture, differently abled, neurotype,  or sexuality is welcome. No problem is too large or too small, you have already taken the difficult step of looking for a counsellor, I would be pleased to join you on your journey. 

My first session

I offer an initial telephone call of 30 minutes without charge to decide whether we can work together and set up convenient regular session times. 

Sessions are 50 minutes long, and the first session is set up for a mutual assessment. Do I feel I can work with you? Do you feel you could be in a therapeutic relationship with me? 

After this I would be looking for a commitment to at least 6 sessions should you decide to continue.
