About me and my therapy practice

If you're struggling to paddle your canoe through some dark and choppy seas, maybe counselling could help you ride the waves and find calmer, more sparkling waters. Telling your story and exploring what's behind stuck patterns of thinking, feeling and relating may lead to relief and moving on in your life.

As well as offering short and long-term talk therapy, a lot of my clients find creative counselling enjoyable and helpful and also benefit from mindfulness and energy-psychology stress management practices.

Practice description

I provide a space where you can:

  • Be heard. Being listened to and deeply accepted for who you are matters.
  • Explore what's going on and do something positive about what's keeping you stuck.
  • Get creative. Talking is vital but easy-going creative expression could support your words.
  • Promote balance by using practical methods to reduce stress and soothe upset.

I love using strengths coaching to help people feel more energised and purposeful in their lives and am also an experienced careers adviser.

Please feel free to check out my website:

  • It provides lots more information about what I do and how we could work together.
  • It's also got links to self-help resources you may find useful.

My first session

Our first session costs £40 and involves exploring and clarifying what brought you here and starting to identify what you want to change in your life. I may ask you to complete a self-assessment questionnaire after the session if you're experiencing high levels of distress. We would discuss your answers to this in session two.

My usual fee for sessions two and after is £50 but I also offer a sliding scale based on people's ability to pay.
