About me and my therapy practice
I work with individuals and couples offering a safe and confidential space where you can explore whatever is troubling you in more depth. You may want to reflect on life decisions and experiences or talk about present issues and conflicts. Whatever it is I offer you a compassionate and non judgemental environment. I understand how difficult it can be to start counselling and will work with whatever you want to bring and only ever at your pace.
I am experienced in helping adults who grew up in unstable or unsafe environments. I can help adults who grew up witnessing domestic violence, or suffered emotional, physical or sexual abuse. Talking about your past and understanding how your experiences have impacted you can be transformative. For children experiencing traumatic events, the impact is far reaching, often into adulthood, and can result in psychological and emotional distress. I can help you begin to talk, process and heal.
I can also help with many other issues such as anxiety and depression and low self esteem, which are often as a result of childhood traumas.
I also work with couples to help you both address any difficulties you have. This may be broken trust, communication problems, drifting apart or major life decisions. The word relationship encompasses all types of relationships and I welcome platonic as well as intimate couples and heterosexual and couples from the LGBTQ+Community.
For individuals, all sessions last 50 minutes, unless we have arranged otherwise. The standard fee for each session is £55
For couples, I offer 60 minute sessions which are £80 and 90 minute sessions which are £110. We will work together to establish what sessions are best suited to you both
I work online via Zoom and offer telephone counselling for those who prefer not to use a video link. I have also now returned to face-to-face sessions in my therapy rooms in Hillingdon and Buckinghamshire.
My first session
The first session is generally where we will explore a bit more about you, what has brought you to therapy and what you hope to get out of it. It can feel overwhelming so I ensure we only work at your pace and whatever you feel comfortable saying in that first session.
I am passionate about offering a welcoming and empathic environment. I will work gently and respectfully with you as I understand that counselling can be a challenging step to take. Please feel free to contact me for a free, no commitment, 15 minute session where we can chat about your needs and I can answer any questions you may have.
