About me

When life throws problems at you it is sometimes not possible to talk to close friends and family. Having the space to talk to someone who is not involved but who will listen without judgement can make all the difference and allow you to see more clearly.

Working collaboratively to explore those things in life that are causing you concern, my aim is to encourage and empower your self belief. I can support you so that you can live life more fully and achieve the things that are important to you.

In times of trouble, we can work together to deal with your issues.

A safe and confidential service is my priority. I have an advanced DBS check (formally CRB) and and my practice is fully insured.

How much does it cost?

I offer all new clients an initial 30 minute assessment, which can be done over the phone and is free of charge.This will give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the process and for us to decide if we would be comfortable working together.

After assessment all sessions are charged at £35 per 50 minute session, payable by cash or BACS transfer prior to the appointment.
