About me

If you're anxious, depressed, having relationship difficulties or just trying make sense of your life, by considering counselling you’ve taken the first step towards change. And you may well be wondering  - will this work for me? The good news is that studies show that the majority of clients see some benefit from counselling and therapy. You might also be asking yourself – is this the right counsellor for me?

I believe you can only really answer that question through an initial meeting but what I offer is a confidential, safe space to explore what’s going on for you, whether it’s something that's happening in your life right now or issues from the past that you’ve never be able to resolve. It’s a collaborative approach where we go at your pace.

Here are some answers to other questions you might have:

How much will it cost?

I charge £40 for an initial meeting and then £50 for subsequent 50 minute sessions.

Will you be able to help me?

I have successfully worked with adults and adolescents (16+) facing a range of difficulties, it’s something we can discuss in our initial session. If we feel there isn’t a fit I’ll try and suggest another counsellor or service that may be more suitable.

How long does it take to feel better?

You’re an individual and although other people may have faced similar difficulties before it’s different for everyone. We can talk about what might work for you in our initial meeting.

Where will we meet?

I work from a dedicated counselling room in the centre of Northampton and Market Harborough, there are several public car parks within 5 minutes walk.

How do I move things forward?

We can first speak on the phone to set up an meeting where I can begin to understand what you’re trying to deal with and you can see what it might be like for us to work together. If I'm in a session you'll hear my answer machine but please leave a message, I return most calls the same day. Alternatively please email me with your contact number and I'll call you back.
