About me and my therapy practice

Having worked as a clinician in the NHS for 14 years where I supported individuals  and their families undergoing life - changing events, I decided to formally re-train  as a counsellor and psychotherapist. This experience has enabled me to deliver a rich and evidence based approach to supporting others through life's dilemmas.

I now work as a  private psychotherapist and offer therapy both to those who feel affected by recent difficult events in their lives and to those who feel that there is something 'not quite right' in their daily existence and  who wish to explore the possibility for change.

My core training was in psychodynamic psychotherapy, however I also bring elements of CBT and the systemic model into my practice. I believe very much in looking at what has lead an individual to be in the place in which they find themselves in today. I my practice I seek to empower you to reach a perspective on life where you can find peace with yourself, but also the strength  and self-belief to allow for the possibility of change.

What I normally suggest to clients is that we arrange an initial assessment session where we can discuss what has brought them to seek therapy and give us both the opportunity to see if we feel we would work well together. I am also happy to have a offer a free 15 minute phone call prior to our meeting in person.

The initial assessment session is a 50 minute appointment for which I charge £45. If you then wish to continue therapy I normally suggest a weekly session at the same time and place every week.

I then charge  £45  for our ongoing appointments. I do offer concessionary rates for students and low-income clients. If you feel you fall into this category , please let me know.
