About me and my therapy practice

By coming to personal therapy, you may be seeking to find relief and gain insight into the obstacles which might be blocking your path to health and happiness. By shedding light on blind spots and working with you to overcome inner resistance, I can help you move forward equipped with the strategies you need to thrive.

Therapy offers a safe, confidential place where you can talk about your difficulties. You might have unhelpful or negative thoughts and behaviours that you want to change.

What we talk about will vary depending on the problem you want help with. It could include:

  • your relationships
  • your emotions
  • your thoughts
  • unhealthy or unhelpful behaviours
  • situations or events you find difficult

You don't have to be in crisis to have therapy.

I will help and support you in this process, in order to make positive changes in your life. I uphold equal opportunities and I respect difference.

As a BACP member I am committed to providing therapy in a confidential, safe and non-judgemental environment.

You can find more information about me on my website.

The arc of therapy is a process, not an event.

My approach is based on the belief that every human being has the capacity to fulfil his or her own potential.

Practice description

I work via Zoom or MS Teams.


My first session

Every therapist works in a different way. At the introductory online session (usually 30 minutes), I will start by asking you about the difficulties you are experiencing. I offer a safe and confidential space where you will feel respected, understood and valued.

Once we have both decided whether we are a ‘good fit’, we can agree a mutual way of working together and we can plan how therapy will work for you. How many sessions you have, will depend on your individual circumstances.

We will usually have a number of scheduled, regular sessions lasting for 50 or 90 minutes. This time will be yours every week. We can then begin to engage in a supportive, collaborative process. I suggest an initial commitment of 6 or 12 sessions, during which we can review our work and decide how to proceed. However, you can stay in therapy for as long as you wish.
