Counselling and psychotherapy for individuals, couples and groups. Supervision; one to one or group.
Experiencing difficult times, whether through, stress, anxiety, depression, relationships, abuse, anger, eating issues, addictions, illness, or loss or you may be unsure what is troubling you. In our lives, these times can be distressing and it is common to feel alone, hopeless and confused, affecting all areas of your life.
Entering into therapy, either short or longer term can help you to understand and overcome these feelings freeing up your internal resources, enabling you to lead a more fulfilling and happier life.
I have many years experience working with individuals, couples and groups, from many different backgrounds, and respect each person as an individual, so take that first step and contact me to discuss your needs now.
I work from either of two comfortable, non-clinical settings with parking on site and accessible by bus or train. I can offer appointments, to couples or individuals in my Brigg practice and I also have some spaces for trainee counsellors and supervisees.
I work either face to face or via ZOOM with clients and supervisees.

Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
Please contact me for further details about the official TA101 training and workshops if you are interested in becoming a counsellor/ psychotherapist.
I also currently have spaces for counselling/ psychotherapy supervisees' in a therapy group.
Therapy sessions are usually weekly and last for 50 minutes. I charge £50 for individuals, £60 for couples (also applies to the initial consultation). Remember there is no obligation and we can discuss payment options to suit your budget, at our initial consultation. If you are registered with an employee scheme or private healthcare provider such as BUPA AVIVA or Simplyhealth, it may be possible to have some or all of your therapy funded in this way. Just contact me for details.
The best investment you will ever make in your staff
Personal issues can have a major impact on your employee’s work, which can result in sickness or lack of concentration. This adds up to a cost to your business, not just in working hours lost, also in loss of productivity or engagement.
As an employer, you will equally benefit, as your time will be freed up from dealing with these issues.
Therapy Works 4 U Employee Assistance Programme (EAP), is a cost effective, affordable means of providing support for your staff who may be experiencing problems in or outside of the workplace.
Now your employees can access confidential counselling face to face or via SKYPE taking only one hour a week of their (and your) time.
You only pay for sessions booked and for loyal customers, I am pleased to offer a discounted rate.
Unlike many employee assistance providers, I see counselling not as a ‘tick box’ exercise, instead a really valuable, positive and lasting experience.
As a qualified and experienced counsellor and therapist, I have a real understanding of people’s needs, also having experienced both roles – employer and employee.
EAP’s are not just for people in crisis, but a valuable resource to help employees with the everyday problems that we all face in life.
Your EAP can help with:
v Conflicts at home or at work
v Carer’s issues
v Family and relationship difficulties
v Anxiety, depression and stress
v Abuse and bullying
v Assertiveness and anger management
v Decision making and problem solving
v Bereavement and loss
v Addictions such as alcohol, gambling or drugs
v Confidence and self-esteem
You chose your staff well and they are your most important resource – look after them and they will reward you.
