Thank you for clicking on my profile, I want to start by reassuring you that I am here to help and support you. Whatever emotions, thoughts and feelings you are struggling to understand or deal with I will give you space and time to talk and be genuinely listened to.
I am very passionate about the work I do, I have a lot of experience of helping my clients to overcome their issues in both one to one sessions and also in group work.
One to One Sessions
You can talk to me without judgment in a safe, confidential and comfortable space. We work at your pace, and I will able to help you to start to understand what is happening. I help you to move forward if you are feeling stuck. My work often means supporting you to build up your self confidence.
Group workshops suit people who want to work with me for a day in depth and who want the benefits that come from working and speaking as part of a group. These days are titled 'Saturday Psychodrama'. If you are new to psychodrama, I welcome a call or email to assure you that there is no need to act.
I offer individual sessions of 55 minutes which are a weekly commitment.
Cancellation: please tell me a week in advance if you wish to cancel/amend an appointment
I offer one-day group workshops which people may attend regularly if they like them.
