About me and my therapy practice

Talking to a trained professional can help you explore your concerns, thoughts and feelings and improve relationships and your mental wellbeing.  The goal of the therapy is to know ourselves more fully, become more whole, and live our lives more richly and fully.

Together we will explore the difficulties that bring you to therapy, focussing on relationships now and in your past. I work in a compassionate and supportive way, understanding how difficult it is to start therapy. Our work together is confidential and I adhere to the BACP framework for ethical practice.

About Me:

I am a trained and qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor and Psychotherapist.  I have experience working in private, public and third sectors. I am registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) and British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP).

Practice description

Counselling - Time limited with a focus, online or in person

Usually 24 sessions we focus on a particular problem or set of problems. We will meet weekly for 50 minutes and will work together to help you find your own solutions – whether that’s making effective changes in your life or finding ways of coping with your problems.

Psychotherapy - Long term/open ended, online or in person

This kind of therapy addresses underlying issues and causes, often from your past, which may be concerning you, or affecting your relationships with others. In your sessions you will be encouraged to talk freely and to look deeper into your problems and worries. Sessions are 50 minutes, once or twice weekly and generally for 2 years or longer.

My first session

Research shows the most important thing in bringing about change is the relationship you have with your counsellor or psychotherapist, so together, we will decide what service will suit you in addressing your needs and overcoming the challenges that bring you to therapy.

We will meet for an initial consultation to discuss the problems that bring you to therapy and decide how to proceed, this consultation will last around 90 minutes and there is a fee of £80.
