About me

My work as a therapist is based on the belief that change is possible. I believe counselling can change lives. I am passionate about giving people a space where they are heard, valued and understood, and assisting them to find the strength to overcome their difficulties, in order to lead fulfilling lives. I feel it to be an honour to be a part of this journey of change.

Deciding to access counselling can be a difficult first step for any of us, and I recognise the courage it may take to simply get to this point. This may be a time when you need to reach out in search of a safe, calm and confidential space in which to explore your feelings. I aim to offer you such a place, away from the pressures of everyday life, a place where you can be yourself, find yourself.

Whether you are in crisis, stuck in a painful relationship or struggling with emotional difficulties that won't seem to go away, my goal is to help you understand yourself in a rich and deep way so that you can better deal with the challenges that life inevitably brings.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have 10 years of experience of working psychotherapeutically with adults. I am a psychodynamic counsellor and I have worked with a wide variety of people and issues, in the UK and abroad, including addiction, bereavement, loss, spirituality, identity issues, relocation, chronic physical health conditions, relationship and family issues, anger, and trauma.

I have worked in different agencies including those specialising in addiction and sexual violence, as well as agencies aimed at the LGBTQ community.

Fees

It is not unusual to feel unsure about starting therapy. I understand this and am trained to help you with the decision. I offer you an initial consultation which carries no obligation, I would spend an hour with you exploring what is troubling you at the moment, identify the issues you feel you would like my help with, and decide together whether we can work together.

If we agree to proceed with counselling, we will find a regular time for your sessions.

My fees are £25 for the initial consultation and £55 per session thereafter.

I offer a limited number of concessionary spaces for people for whom counselling would not be affordable otherwise.
