About me

I am a qualified person-centered therapist. I work with individuals who are straight, gay, queer, bi, asexual, questioning and all genders including cis, trans, intersex, non-binary, genderqueer and gender questioning people. There are no issues I cannot support you with.

I have experience of a wide variety of different problems such as; anxiety, low mood, end of life, chronic illness, disability, parenting, break up, trauma, sexual abuse, addictions, low self-esteem and relationship issues. The people I have helped have had feelings that range from mild upset or worry, through intense levels of distress and despair.

Working in a person-centered way, I will offer you empathy, acceptance and warmth as you explore what has brought you to counselling. I am interested in your thoughts and feelings and I want to understand your world and how things are for you. Working together we will explore your world and it is possible you will gain greater self-awareness and understanding.

Life can be difficult and confusing and people come to therapy for all sorts of reasons. Counselling can provide the support needed to find ways of making meaningful and positive changes in one’s life; it allows people to discuss their problems and any difficult feelings they encounter in a safe, confidential environment.

Fees

Counselling sessions are typically once a week for 50 minutes. I offer a free initial 30-minutes consultation on the phone which gives us the opportunity to explore and understand the presenting issues, to discuss how the counselling process works and to see if we would be able to work together in a therapeutic way.

Fees are £50 per 50-mins session. I offer a sliding scale for students and artists. (£30-£50) per 50-minute session.

Further information

I have a particular interest and experience in supporting creatives such as: artists, writers, poets, musicians, singers, actors and architects and the potential issues that the creative block or the feelings of not being good enough can bring.
