About me

My aim is to provide you with a safe, consistent, and supportive relationship within which we can explore together the issues that are most pressing for you. I will offer honest feedback when I can regarding the key patterns in your life, and encourage you, if you are willing, to uncover links with your past that may shed new light on your present.

What I Offer

I offer counselling and psychotherapy to adults on an individual basis. The time frame can be short or longer term, depending on what you want and need. We can talk about this when we meet.

Either way, I offer sessions of 60 minutes in length, at the same time each week, and in the same location. This consistency is an important part of the process. Availability permitting, I am able to offer sessions during the week, both daytime and some evenings.

Additional information

Reduced Fees

If you are struggling with money right now, please let me know. I may be able to offer you more of a reduced fee. Provided that I have space available in my practice, I do believe in offering a limited number of lower cost therapy places. Don't let money worries get in the way of thinking about seeking help.

Initial Appointment

I suggest meeting for an initial appointment in which you can ask me any questions that you may have, and get a feel for how we might work together. It’s also a chance for me to find out a bit about you, and what has brought you to counselling and psychotherapy. This appointment lasts for 30 minutes and is free of charge.

Individual Sessions

Following the initial appointment, arranging a regular weekly session time on the same day each week would be the next step. These sessions last for 60 minutes. Some people prefer to arrange more than one session per week, and this can also work out well. It really depends upon your budget, the time you have available, and how quickly and how deeply you would like to work.

Further information

Speak to your G.P.

Before deciding to come for counselling privately, remember that you can also speak to your GP about what counselling services may be available free of charge in your area. Alternatively, your workplace, university, college, or a voluntary/charitable organisation may also be able to help.

Shop around

I would also like to encourage you to meet with one or two other counsellors as well. You can compare our styles and approaches, and most importantly, notice how you feel when you are with us. It's important to feel as though you have made a good choice.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
