About me and my therapy practice

Dealing with difficult experiences and feelings in life can at times make us feel alone and disconnected. Whether these are feelings of anger, grief, fear, anxiety, frustration or sadness, they can all feel overwhelming.  

Counselling with a trained professional in a safe and non-judgemental environment can help you to understand and process these experiences and emotions. If you want to understand more about yourself, improve your relationship with others or change your life, counselling can help. 

Counselling helped me and I want to use my knowledge and experience to help you. 

Practice description

I am a qualified Humanistic Gestalt Therapist. This means that I work flexibly with clients at their pace enabling them to focus on what is important to them in the here and now. My approach is one of compassionate, non-judgemental and sensitive enquiry. For me it is also important that you feel supported and that we carry out regular reviews of the counselling process.

I am now offering face to face, online and telephone sessions. We can discuss which option you would most prefer. The number of sessions you feel you need can be a small number of sessions or longer and each session will be 50 minutes in length. 

If you would be interested in finding out more about me and how I may be of help to you then please do contact me. I do understand the courage sometimes needed to make that first call or email. I look forward to hearing from you.

My first session

I offer an initial free telephone session of 30 minutes and this initial session is to establish your concerns and if you feel we can work together. Following this initial session there is no obligation to continue with further sessions.  Please contact me for further information via email or phone.
