I am currently open to taking on new clients: -

I feel that it is very important to build trust and a good working partnership and for me this requires, at least, the first session to be in person. Due to the current levels of risk in-person sessions  require us both to wear a surgical mask; these will be provided.

The rooms are cleaned thoroughly, there are hand washing and sanitising facilities, there are clear procedures; and health and risk appraisals are made for each visit.

After one or more in-person sessions we can talk about moving some sessions on-line; this requires the client to have a private and safe place, and the ability to join a Zoom call.

Please contact me and we can talk it through and understand if I can help.

About me and my therapy practice

In my Newbury practice I offer face to face counselling including services for adults and young adults (16+); those suffering with feelings of anxiety, depression; lacking self-esteem, experiencing relationship or identity issues; including self harm and issues with substance abuse.

I work with my clients to develop self worth and acceptance, helping with coping strategies while looking to promote healing and resilience.

I currently have appointments available on Monday evenings.

I offer both short and long term work. Usually starting with 6 weekly sessions.

My fees are £50. I have some appointments at a reduced rate.

Please contact me in the first instance by email. I offer free telephone consultations.
