About me

I establishedmy private practice,  in 2010 and I am pleased to say it is quickly gaining an excellent reputation for effective and friendly psychotherapy.

I work with a wide range of issues, from clinical disorders to general life issues.

I have been involved in the field of emotional health for many years, as both a therapist and also as a Samaritan volunteer since 1998.

The cost of a 50 minute session is £40, alternatively there is a discount available for block bookings of six sessions at £200 - 6 sessions for the price of 5. (discounted rate requires advance payment in full and is non refundable).

For student counsellors/therapists who must attend personal counselling as a requirement of their course, I offer a reduced rate of £30 per session.

I am also available for group work in the areas of Self Esteem and Stress Management using CBT techniques - if your group/organisation would like group work or a course on another topic, please feel free to contact me.

Individual sessions per 50minute therapy hour - £40 
Block booking of 6 sessions - £200 - that is 6 sessions for the price of 5
(block booking to be paid in the first of the 6 sessions)

Clinical Supervision

£55 for the required one and a half hours per month.
(no additional fee for completing Supervision reports, Supervisor statement for BACP membership etc.)

Cancellation Policy

Unfortunately it is necessary to have a 'same day' cancellation policy.
When appointments are cancelled or not attended on the day of the appointment, a fee of £20 is payable for the missed session.
In the case of block booking 6 sessions, the missed session will be deducted from the total.

Further information

The Lurgan office will be 'open for business' mid May and will be replacing my current Dungannon base- it is located just up from the Railway Station, so very convenient for the M1 and there is free parking right beside it - unfortunately there is a flight of stairs with no disability access to the building.

Please feel free to contact me about making an appointment in Lurgan.
