About me and my therapy practice
Whether you are suffering grief, recent or earlier trauma, concerns about the future, troubling memories of the past, struggling with anxiety or unexplained emotional pain, my aim will be to help you find ways forward that feel positive for you. I will listen carefully, empathically and respectfully to whatever it is that brings you to seek counselling at this time.
I have over 25 years counselling experience: both in private practice and in Primary Care and Employee Assisted Programmes. I can offer a short term contract (6 sessions) or medium to long term work.
If you would like to find out more, I suggest either an initial 15 minute conversation, by telephone or remotely (no cost) or a 50 min meeting in person or remotely. This will give you the opportunity to see whether you feel comfortable with me and for me to learn more about your needs and to assess whether I am the right person to help you.
I hope you find these details helpful in your search to find a therapist. My practice is based in warm, safe and quiet room in my home, which is easily accessible from Uttoxeter, Ashbourne and Cheadle and approximately 30 minutes from Stoke on Trent and Leek. There is off road parking.
My first session
Following our initial meeting, if we agree to work together, we will draw up a short therapy contract during our first session. This contract will include information about confidentiality, times and dates, fees and cancellation policy. The sessions are 50 minutes long.
After our first session we will continue to work collaboratively at a pace that suits you. We will also review regularly, to check that you are getting what you need from your counselling.
I offer a 10% discount for 6 sessions paid in advance. I review my hourly rate annually in April.
