About me

First and foremost, I am a human being; I have made mistakes and I have been through difficulties in which I needed additional support in order to overcome them. This is how I know  how important it is to be able to connect with someone who is non-judgemental and easy to talk to about the areas of our life that have become difficult. I also know how hard it is to take that step and how often the fear of admitting that we need help is what stops us from getting the help we need. However, I strongly believe that getting stuck and feeling bad is nature's way of informing us that we need to learn new skills in which to survive.  Simply put, it's a normal part of all human existence. That's why the support I offer is a collaboration in which we combine our knowledge - the knowledge you hold about yourself, your life and your experiences with my knowledge of how low mood or anxiety develops and can be perpetuated. It will be a team effort in which we will develop a shared understanding of the difficulties you encounter and work towards finding a way out of them.

I have worked for the NHS for a number of years and have a wealth of experience working with a wide range of problems. I offer long or short term work on a face to face basis, over the telephone or online and I am happy to see you in your own home. I will be very much guided by you on how you wish to work and we will spend a little bit of time establishing what would make you would feel more comfortable and at ease during our sessions and what you can expect to see from me.

My main aim, however long it takes, is for you to become your own therapist; to discover the inner strengths you were born with; to remove the barriers that are preventing you from reaching your full potential and to achieve lasting and meaningful change.

Getting started:
If after reading this you have further questions or feel you are ready discuss your options then please get in touch via the email or telephone number provided, we will then:
1. Have a brief conversation where we can discuss the counselling process, what you can expect from me and any questions you may have
2. We will use this to time to discuss what your expectations are and what you would like to achieve from counselling
3. We will discuss how the sessions will run, what your preferences are and what availability we both have if you do decide to book an appointment
4.  The first appointment is £10 and will last for 60 minutes during which time, you can decide if I am the right counsellor for you.  After this, sessions will cost £35
Note: I will not take any offence if you decide I am not the right counsellor for you, it is of the greatest importance to me that you find the counsellor you need and I will make sure you get the opportunity to discuss this in detail at our first meeting.
5. I accept payment by bank transfer or cash prior to the appointment beginnning

I look forward to hearing from youl.
