An important purpose of therapy is to allow time and space for exploring what is happening for you with someone who is not involved in your everyday life. I have extensive training in different approaches which is helpful in providing clarity about a wide range of issues and experiences and is appropriate whether you have a crisis situation, longer term patterns and/or a vague sense of something not being right.
I am an experienced therapist (over 20 years) working with people from all walks of life, individuals ranging from older adults to young people, as well as couples counselling. We can decide together whether you need more of a brief intervention for a current life event, crisis or situation, or whether you wish to take your explorations further.
Our work together would begin with an initial meeting, to explore your needs, so do call me to arrange a no obligation first appointment.
Although I work with a wide range of issues, as listed below, such listings cannot cover all of our experiences as human beings. Thus sometimes we can say there is a definite issue or problem such as relationship issues, work related problems, anxiety, depression, life crises and anger issues, (to name just a few) but sometimes people come for quite vague reasons; some with wider concerns such as their feelings about themselves and others; and there are those who are questioning the meaning of their life and where it is going.
My practice is based 4 miles west of Wilton and 8 miles east of Shaftesbury and is within easy reach of the A30 (Wilton to Shaftesbury) and A303, being within distance of various communities such as: Salisbury, Wilton, Amesbury, Tisbury, Shaftesbury, Blandford Forum, Sturminster Newton, Wimborne, Wincanton and Fordingbridge.
Parking: there is space for off street parking in the driveway.
Bus route: Wilts and Dorset route 26 & 27, covering Salisbury, Tisbury and Shaftesbury.
Training, qualifications & experience
Training and experience:
Working with many different people within health care settings has been my occupation for over 40 years, including over 20 years practising as a counsellor and psychotherapist.
My extensive training, as a psychotherapist and counsellor, drew on different approaches to therapy in order to enable me to utilise the most valuable and relevant aspects of each, recognising that individuals are unique and no single approach fits all. I am also involved in the training of counsellors and psychotherapists and researching within the field through the Centre for Therapeutic Education at Roehampton University, and provide supervision for psychotherapists and counsellors.

The fee for the first consultation is £50 and gives us the opportunity to meet and begin to explore what is happening for you. From then on fees are calculated on a sliding scale depending on income, ranging from £50-£75 for 50 minute session for individuals and £70-£95 for a 75 minute session for couples. (Concessions may be available for those on a low income, please ask if this applies to you).
Supervision fees are £55 per 50 minute session.
Our first session involves exploring your situation, needs and expectations and how we work together. It is also an opportunity for you to experience what it is like to have time and space to think and speak about yourself and to get a feel for what it is like to begin exploring and making sense of your experiences.
