About me and my therapy practice

I am a humanistic, integrative practitioner with over twenty years post qualifying experience thirteen of which  i gained working in primary care in the NHS. Whilst my values and approach are underpinned by person centred therapy, I have integrated skills from a wide range of therapies, to enable me to work holistically. I have a special interest in narrative therapy; please see my website for more information. I am happy to work short or long term.

Practice description

From June 21st if sanctions lift I will be working face to face from a room in  Enso Healing Rooms;  190 Cheltenham roadBS6 5RB . Enso has a martial art shop at the front and therapy rooms to the back. There is on street parking on meters, check signage for details.

My first session

I offer  an initial 10 -20m zoom or regular phone call for free as an initial way to answer any questions. I believe we often form an impression of whether we will be a good fit from speaking. If you then choose to pursue working together we can arrange a longer initial session (50m).
