About me and my therapy practice

Whatever's brought you here, let's see if we can gently untangle what you’re struggling with to support positive change in your life and relationships.

Practice description

Listening deeply to you and unpacking the emotional processes we can all get lost in are the bedrock of my approach. You may enjoy using creative methods to help slow things down, explore your experiences and build new possibilities. Learning additional mindfulness and body-honouring stress management methods could also bring welcome balance and relief.

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

I've used soothing and restoring energy psychology methods for many years and have developed my own approach which brings together my interests in:

  • Internal Family Systems: This can give profound insights into what keeps us stuck.
  • Using creative methods: A fantastic way to support counselling and coaching.
  • Working with trauma: We can use strategies that help reduce unnecessary distress.

Feel free to check out my website. It says more about what I do and how we could work together, and it also has self-help resources (for managing stress, anxiety and more) that many people have benefitted from over the years. Find out more at goodwillguidance.com > About > Self-help.

My first session

Your 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 if you're experiencing high levels of distress.

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

So there you have it! I wish you well on your journey and I'm just a phone call or message away if you'd like more information and/or would like to explore working together.
