About me

I am offering face to face appointments during lockdown 3 as well as online platforms (Zoom) for all types of therapy. I have always offered online sessions and find that they can work just as effectively as face to face.

Are you are struggling with lockdown, feeling anxious or isolated or perhaps feeing the pressure in your relationship? Struggling with managing childcare, working from home and trying to juggle it all?

My aim for every client is that you move away from what you don’t want and towards what you do in the easiest and quickest way.

I have probably spent several thousand of hours now working with clients who have low mood and/or anxiety and can confidently say, irrespective of how long you may have had this for, you can change it if you have the seeds of an open mind and stick with the process of therapy.

Our initial session will be outcome focused to understand very specifically what's going on and what you want to change and then I tailor my approach to your unique needs, drawing from different models of psychotherapy where applicable. I will give you stuff to do in between sessions if I think it will get you to where you want to be faster.

My clients regularly feedback that they enjoy the process of learning about themselves and making long lasting changes that they perhaps didn’t think were possible in the beginning…my colleagues say that they hear a lot of laughing from my room..the hardest thing is to make the first contact to get help and then we can work together to change what you want (it might be a lot easier that you think).

Training, qualifications & experience

My psychotherapy experience has been gained through interactive face-to-face training, extensive client practice with individuals and couples, personal psychotherapy and supported with monthly supervision. I abide by a strict ethical code of practice as set out by my accrediting body (NLPtCA).

Additional information

Often clients will ask me "how many sessions will I/we need?"

There is no definite answer: some people need only a few sessions and others continue for many sessions over a period of months. We will review our work together every six weeks and it depends on when you feel you have achieved what you want from therapy that we agree and plan an appropriate ending.

All sessions are an hour in length.

Individual fee £65

Couples sessions fee £75

When I work

I offer appointments during the day, evenings and on a Saturday. I can normally fit clients in within 7 days.
