About me and my therapy practice

MA, BA, MBACP (Accred.) I specialise in couple and individual psychodynamic psychotherapy. I offer a warm and collaborative approach, working with you on the issues you bring, rather than setting an agenda. There is no limit to the number of sessions you can have.


A little about me...

Alongside my small psychotherapy practice, I consult for the Listening Lounge. Before returning to Jersey, I worked for Tavistock Relationships, London (Tavistock Institute of Medical Psychology), a world-leading centre of couple therapy, research and training. There, I completed my Masters degree in Couple and Individual Psychodynamic Counselling & Psychotherapy. At Tavistock Relationships, I took an interest in the impact of the birth of a child on the couple relationship, as well as delivering Couple Therapy for Depression, a Tavistock Relationships and NHS initiative designed to improve both mental health and couple connection.



Practice description

Couple sessions

The most effective couple therapy happens when both partners attend together. Couple sessions are scheduled at the same time each week on an ongoing, open-ended basis. They are 50 minutes long. I will work with you on the issues you bring, rather than setting an agenda.

Cost: £140 per session

I offer a limited number of reduced fee sessions. Please request this on your initial email.


Couple Therapy for Depression

Couple Therapy for Depression is a positive step forward for couples where one or both partners are struggling with depression. It is a highly effective NICE approved treatment for anxiety and depression and the couple relationship. Created by Tavistock Relationships for the NHS, it consists of 16 - 20 sessions and takes an integrative approach to therapy, drawing on several psychotherapeutic modalities. Sessions are also 50 minutes long.

Cost: These sessions are currently unavailable

Please be aware that Jersey Talking Therapies and some NHS trusts offer Couple Therapy for Depression for free.


Individual sessions

Individual sessions may be the best option for you at the moment, and can offer you the breathing space you need to reflect on your life and relationship situation. Sessions are 50 minutes and are scheduled at the same time each week on an ongoing, open-ended basis. I will work with you on the issues you bring, rather than setting an agenda. 

Cost: £115 per session

I offer a limited number of reduced fee sessions (including for counselling trainees). Please request this on your initial email.


Payment

Payment must be made in advance of each session and can be made via bank transfer.

As your weekly session will be reserved just for you and cannot be filled on an ad-hoc basis, missed sessions are billable. This is standard counselling & psychotherapy practice. 

My first session

The initial session

The initial session lasts 1h 30mins. During your initial session, I will ask you about yourself, and what brings you to therapy. Please note that sometimes it becomes apparent in initial sessions that an alternative type of therapy or help will better suit your needs. If this is the case, I will advise of possible next steps. Initial consultations are charged at £135 for individuals & £160 for couples.
