About me and my therapy practice

I offer therapy which is essentially about finding out what is affecting you, the client.  I trained as a Humanistic therapist but have found that a range of interventions may need to be employed to help get to the root of the problem.  

We work with what you bring and I help you make sense of it and make changes to move forward.


Practice description

I offer short term, solution-focused therapy about specific issues, typically lasting about 6-10 sessions. Or I offer longer term, open ended therapy, if you need time to explore a range of issues.  I am experienced in working with depression and anxiety and can help find ways to alleviate your symptoms.

I also offer couples therapy, having recently completed a further certificate in relationship therapy with The Tavistock Institute.

As an accredited Humanistically trained counsellor, I am recognised by training institutes to offer appropriate therapy to trainees. I am experienced in the expectations required of student counsellors and am able to work with the accompanying stresses of this difficult process. I offer extended hours and weekend appointments to fit in with the balancing act of the course requirements, supervision, a placement and personal development.

My first session

I offer a free thirty minute assessment.  This is an opportunity for both myself and you, the client to see if we can work together.  After this session I offer weekly or fortnightly sessions which are 50 minutes long.
