About me and my therapy practice

I listen to the people who come to talk to me. They tell me about the things that really bother them. I then support them in working towards a way of accepting reality, so that they are free to make choices and to do what they are capable of doing to make their lives more creative and enjoyable.

I work face to face with people and also online, via WhatsApp, FaceTime, Skype and Zoom.

I also do eco-psychotherapy - walking sessions with my clients, who wish to experience a connection to nature. I live on the edge of town and there are beautiful woods and meadows very near by. It’s akin to ‘forest bathing’ and can be very therapeutic.

I work in the short term (3 months), medium term (6 to 12 months), and longer term (1, 2, or 3+ years.)

I see people for one 50 minute therapy session per week, on the same day and at the same time each week.

My first session

I schedule an initial 50 minute session with people so that we can talk and find out if we feel comfortable working together. This session is not free, but at a lower rate than a regular session. 

If we both feel comfortable, we then schedule our regular, weekly session of therapy. We discuss my fee at that initial session. I ask people to pay me weekly, by bank transfer, on the day of the therapy session.
