About me and my therapy practice

If the idea of counselling, or therapy, seems daunting, you are not unusual or alone in that thought.   Starting it can feel, for some people, uncomfortable, overwhelming, perhaps embarrassing but if you've decided to talk to someone about personal issues, then its important to find someone you feel comfortable and safe with.  

I like to meet new clients initially for a 'taster'.  Meeting confidentially and face to face, you can ask questions and we can see how it feels to talk together. There is no charge for this half hour chat.  If you decide to work with me then we organise our first   appointment.

Therapy sessions are 50 minutes long.  Due to Covid, I no longer offer face to face sessions, instead all sessions are online using Zoom or Teams, or over the phone.

People I've worked with over the past 12 years have come from all walks of life; adults of all ages facing different challenges, for example:

  • Work/Life balance
  • Loss - of a relationship, a loved one, a job, their health or looks
  • Traumatic events, like an accident or an attack
  • Anxiety - about driving, habits 
  • Stress, low Self-Esteem, 
  • Depression or Loneliness

Everyone is different and together we work out how you want to address your concerns using a Talking Therapy, CBT, EMDR or a combination.  You are the expert on you!

Therapy doesn't have to go on forever.  Sometimes just a few sessions can help you find the right road for you again.

Practice description

Due to the COVID pandemic, I am only seeing clients on Zoom or the phone until its safe to resume face to face work.

My first session

The first session is an assessment.  We talk to discover whats going on and how it feels.  We take a look at your relevant history and set some goals - what to you want to be different and how do we achieve it?

It might feel a bit of a tough session. I will ask you to look after yourself, pass on the areas that feel too challenging to talk about but gently explore who you are and what's going wrong. Be curious about yourself.
